After a long hiatus, under a strict deadline and impending rainy season I decided to tackle a bathroom, more specifically a modular shower stall. The challenges were to keep it a reasonable size for 190 +/- sq ft, retain usability of the original doors for fast packing, and utilize gravity fed pipes both in and out.

For the studs I ripped 2" x 4" down to 2" x 2" which cutout some unnecessary weight and saved space. Most cross pieces were 2" x 2" except the load bearing wall for the kitchen counter and shelves which were reinforced with 2" x 4" cross pieces. I paneled the interior with FRP and called it a day. Some tricky things still to conquer are dealing with the gray water which I tentatively plan to pump into the garden and creating enough water pressure through gravity feed.
