Hi friends, Will here. I’m planning to build a Japanese ofuro soaking bathtub. The difference from our typical baths is that these tubs are deep enough to have the water level at your neck. I’d like to build the tub with a ceramic tile lining. I’m looking for info on how to construct the tub so that it will bewater tight, and can be insulated.
Should a guy approach this the way a concrete swimming pool would be built? I’m also considering welding a stainless tub pan with expanded stainless mesh spotwelded to its inside surface to hold the morter and tile.
I’d appreciate your advice, thanks, -Will
