    Can you describe the basic installation of the shower glass door using the Kerdi Fix and what to avoid? I want to have specifics to discuss it with the glass installer.
    As far as the metal piece for the cabinet, it may be fine to just have a description although I think I have about a week for cabinet delivery unless it will be problematic to locate the additional metal accent.
    Thanks, John.

    Also, is the vented metal piece pictured on the ceiling of your shower part of the steam unit or an additional vent you installed? I have never seen that.
    I noticed your comment on the air tub and will be installing a self cleaning Bain Ultra one also this week. Any specific tips, techniques, etc. I should be aware of? What is the Ram Board?

    So about what width is that metal piece--1/2"? The pictures are great, thanks.

    Interesting that the shower glass installer was here and had several comments concerning transoms. His experience transoms is that the hardware(hinges) on the transoms is not available in any kind of quality material and he has found that this hardware has to be replaced every 3-4 years. He has also found that the few customers that do have a transom in this area do not use them much. They just don't bother to open and close them on a regular basis and the transoms,being a separate opening, also allow for more steam to escape (which wouldn't happen if the older framed shower doors were used). Have you heard this in BC?
