    I'm not sure what kind of show room you are speaking of Edgar but...you will need to remove everything in the current Laundry room, clean well, floors, walls, baseboards, etc . Then help her decide if she wants it painted another color as well as what items you want to include in her new show room. Good luck!

    Hi Edgar! Handicapped shower....like curbless shower? We did one with the floor dropped one inch vs no curb but either kind is involved. Can you handle plumbing, tiling in a wet space? Do your research...walls and floors are different and require special materials. Consider slope of new shower floor for correct drainage and larger space required, as well as hand holds, space for comfortable seating. Also...I speak from experience...consider enough space for an additional person to give assist to person showering....this might be needed in the future! We were newbies when we created our shower...still functions well...I would have made ours bigger if the space had been available.

    Hey Edgar, it should be easy enough as you already have the drain and the water supply on the laundry room, hope these help you out
