Aaaaaadventures! In details:

it looks more crooked in the photo somehow.
Yay I like looking at the photos and realizing we are making progress! And everything is at or above building codes for our area, as we usually aim for - 6mil plastic (2-4mil required), taping off everywhere, rust-resistant screws on the hardi-backer (backerboard). Let's just say I'm glad this is not our first DIY project, because it is definitely more complex than the backsplashes and floor we've tiled in the past.
I almost didn't do that built-in shelving on the right, because I really wanted to get the backerboard installed today. But I just know it will be handy to have in the future, and I'm already glad that I went the extra hours/Lowes trip to make it happen!

Fueled by Baybel cheeses and Oregon fuji apples.
I keep reminding myself that DIY is a process and we are not on a deadline - it's so much better when we take the time to do the job well. But I'm pretty excited for the days of future showers!! And I think husband is too. We ordered a shower head arm that extends up so it will be taller than him!
So more details later. I have at least three posts ready to write for your future selves! But now am off to make vegan banana bread for Menno gathering tomorrow. And tomorrow we are borrowing the wet saw from Moses and Sadie! So tiling is just around squared-off corner!!
