What is my next step with this?
>>
I just refinished my kitchen table and my baby's cradle. I usually do paint/stain with poly on hard wood but decided to try the Annie Sloan chalk paint. So far I'm liking it. I distressed the cradle but I'm debating if I want to repaint it because I'm not too fond of the whole distressed look. Thinking of doing my bathroom cabinets next.

I'm joking around with your name, you old Nazi ;)

This is me >>917983

I'm Canadian, I'm a hobbyist, but I read codes and do things generally the way a professional would. I use yellow ABS cement and dope when there is no rubber gasket. Literally every piece that I use is made in Canada or the US.

The others in the thread, I partially agree. Those hose clamps (>>917146) I'd only use maybe for the final connection on an air line, and I'm not sure if >>918055 is in America. Those traps look European, and even if they aren't, there should only be one P-trap before the wall.
>>
>>917423
Wtf am I reading?
>>
I asked this question in another thread but it might be more pertinent to this one:

I live in a commercial zoned space. I'm not really supposed to live there. Can't mess around too much with the plumbing.

There's a sink in the space with a P trap. Is there any way to get a shower pan/tub to drain into that? I'm trying to avoid ripping up the floor.

I'm assuming this is going to have to be somewhat jury-rigged.
>>

>>918963
A pump? If you can't cut into walls and install a tee, I imagine the best you can do is have a pump take the water from the bottom of the shower basin into a pipe after the trap, inside a vanity or something. Kind of like a clothes washer or dishwasher.

I wonder if you'd need some sort of overflow basin, though. Perhaps a small tub would be better, even if you were only taking showers in it. Could you salvage a pump from an old washer? Hmm. All interesting hypothetical situations that I don't officially endorse ;)
>>
>>918963
Also, post pics.
>>
>>918963
Also, if you own/legally live in this space, could you not play it off as an emergency shower station or something?
>>
Did you guys know that there used to be child porn embedded in the pictures of sink threads?

So... do be careful.

Also, there would be no point. 4chan isn't edgy or 1337 like that anymore, there are other places.

I'm not sure if you're trolling, but you can buy a 2x4 and screw it beside/to the existing joist, directly underneath your plastic.

>>918963
showers (& kitchens, etc.) are not 'illegal' per se in a commercially-zoned area, in fact, they are mandatory for quite a lot of businesses, food-preperation, etc.

If you are worried about the landlord or need a 'temp' install, or something? - different story. Spent a few years living on an industrial estate, basically, if you aint being a complete asshole, no-one GAF, in my experience. Actually, you can be a complete asshole (noise/parties, etc) as the people who do live there (theres always a few, be surprised) tend not to complain, what with their own domestic standing being slightly dubious and all.

Also, post pics.

Thanks bros. I'm out of town at the moment but I might be able to rustle up some pics from the previous tenant. It's just your standard stainless steel sink though: two supplies running into a small electric heater, then back out into the faucet.

The sink drains into a P trap about a foot off the ground. I figured I could just elevate the shower pan above the trap and let gravity work it out, but I have next to no plumbing experience so I'm basically talking out my ass.

Will post pics if I can get em
>>
>>919330

Yeah, I get that. I think a few others are living in the building as well. I just wanted my own space to work and couldn't afford that and an apartment (NYC).

I just moved in and I'm trying to lay low until I know how much the landlord is inclined to snoop.

But there should be laws preventing the guy from just coming into the space unannounced, right?
>>
>>919367
A foot off the ground is not bad. If you have crazy-tall ceilings then you could make some steps up to it (might need up to two feet, though). A plywood platform, supported with dimensional lumber, coated in plastic panels and caulked?

Again, even as an Anon I don't officially endorse this ;)

Any chance you are looking for shop help?
I have 3 years electrical experience, couple months plastic/wood working in a shop, welding , 3d printing, welding and am willing to learn and do any kind of work.

>Is there any way to get a shower pan/tub to drain into that?

How high is your ceiling? How high is the P-trap? Build the tub/shower up on a platform.
