I have a late 1920s shower that sprung a leak in the wall from the shower controls. I'd like to redo the bathroom completely in the future, but not just now. So my goal is to repair that hole that the plumber made to fix the pipes and install a new shower control, diverter, head, and tub filler.
The problem is, because it's so old, the wall is made of concrete and wire mesh, and I'm not sure exactly what approach to take in fixing it. The goal isn't to make it perfect (that would be impossible because I can't find tile to exactly match the originals), but to have it be useable until we rebuild completely. I'm fairly handy, so I think I should be able to handle this, once I have an approach and a plan.
I find pictures to be the most descriptive, so, <a href="http://holeinmyshower.blogspot.com /" target="blogspot">take a look</a> and let me know what you think. (If the link doesn't work, you can just go to http://holeinmyshower.blogspot.com
I appreciate your thoughts.
