Another Sustainable Upgrade
<html><center>
<h2>My life's foundation is true creation.<br>
</h2>
<p>I love upgrading everything I am a part of, <a href="https://steemit.com/gardenofeden/@gardenofeden/incredible-floors-workshop-super-sustainable-fun-the-goe">making it more beautiful,<br>
more functional, more enjoyable, and higher vibe </a>than before I touched it.</p>
<p><br></p>

<p><br></p>
<p>The<a href="https://steemit.com/sustainability/@everlove/fresh-reprieve-doing-it-naturally"> outdoor shower</a> at the @gardenofeden is one of the most loved<br>
experiences, especially in these hot over 100 degree summer days.</p>
<p><br></p>
<p><img src="https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/68313764_10218901779002852_6145252006119342080_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&amp;_nc_eui2=AeH6HRwBYzhae8Tlc9cIz0wqH4hX3Kr6zhUiI2dBzYJ6_Z6NMILK-76ArouuXyEeWkl49fwMacDVC7TiO46hmxGEqG-DORVhYdWqj5AymVkhdw&amp;_nc_oc=AQk-ABv53aLmVgL_sqWBgouKayAv6mObIs38de-dxHBmqBHfpA6gZZ6-NGUQjlVQyAc&amp;_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&amp;oh=19413c3a0e65159f722889efddddcf9a&amp;oe=5DD1F208" width="960" height="720"/></p>
<p><br></p>
<p>Showering amongst the rose buses and grape vines while the birds sing<br>
and the sun peeks through the trees can be invigorating as the<br>
temperature of the water straight from the earth is about 65 degrees all the time.</p>
<p><br></p>
<p><img src="https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/68717912_10218901776562791_2501618695286030336_n.jpg?_nc_cat=104&amp;_nc_eui2=AeE8HyEyjlapuc7P3_uZZRRxLir6QwT1xrVEq3O5SiSJ924MiqDmvxpT3E2cAbaKBq07eTR_0MNdzwWbLgMR8HnJbxqUUT1LDN7jTi3Gav7U5g&amp;_nc_oc=AQmOlfwpGoMAh_oXPbdXPUUcfiEEErEnPsCuktAKjl9Rbq43j4pita0vaXMykbKVgCw&amp;_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&amp;oh=3ef8e05665b3cf33af643e1f03dcf098&amp;oe=5DD5099E" width="720" height="960"/></p>
<p><br></p>
<p>While expanding the shower space, removing the vines that grew into the trees and invaded our rose buses, I added bamboo poles to erect walls, hang fun fabric curtains, laid a teak floor in the dressing room, added a bench, shelves and hooks for towels. &nbsp;Then came time to address the old floor under the showerhead which was eroding with all the years of use.</p>
<p>We dug up, lined the ground space with landscaping fabric, and<br>
repositioned and added more stones for a solid base underfoot. &nbsp;</p>
<p><br></p>
<p><img src="https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/68262828_10218901776722795_4236064675688611840_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&amp;_nc_eui2=AeFH8smUSPvuCteb6bAcyGdrMVLLYz68-wVsTswfyOUJ_nl3IqHNp-gVt8RX9i3Dpkwo8habdFrWIyQLwcSjNSrA-0q_KS2FngH-mBg6CrQ0Ug&amp;_nc_oc=AQkv4O5js41XXucE2e0NoOeQcYregW2Bt5jJdEKuLcocGkKme9GJ1vRDRWDGTGBFttE&amp;_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&amp;oh=23a522b6d59612a7f5f80534b27789ce&amp;oe=5DE814BF" width="720" height="960"/></p>
<p><br></p>
<p>We created drainage using an abundance of shale we already had on hand,<br>
and used it for grouting between the stones as well.</p>
<p><br></p>

<p><br>
We had fun playing tetris with the stone,<br>
being committed to using all the materials we already had on hand,<br>
not purchasing a single thing to make these improvements.</p>
<p><br></p>
<p><img src="https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/68688186_10218913057484807_737389813925150720_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&amp;_nc_oc=AQnlygPVwCjfsLqj3Q0903vdnHOY_tqG4gqnaBquSEczj-_4D0wWd8jyBbPyX6G7VtU&amp;_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&amp;oh=ba917346f892ad06b40d058561529d30&amp;oe=5DDC225E" width="960" height="720"/></p>
<p><br></p>
<p>We created a transition between our teak dressing room floor and our shower floor.</p>
<p><br></p>
<p><img src="https://scontent-dfw5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/68533475_10218901777722820_1377464434951192576_n.jpg?_nc_cat=101&amp;_nc_eui2=AeGOb3XEgErGo5-kPOMeSAqbKC1mx0JqQYqJcCf1vruVi5fUtDlIDDqgZjoQznqosNxCZs3bHEWv5jnXQSqDQ5-nVv27TMe4mBxFsDTwCV_TVA&amp;_nc_oc=AQmX7rSNMW-3xVCI5HSRjlPAKCUwUe_0WW6vij4dBbtSvSf0-YckDNbO8KSFwu6gFVU&amp;_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-1.xx&amp;oh=dfc5d5d087b0ed74ef8ee59af1612345&amp;oe=5DE293FA" width="720" height="960"/></p>
<p><br></p>
<p>After finding their positions we tightened the pattern and leveled them up.</p>
<p><br></p>

<p>This shower has been used hundreds of times.<br>
I have no doubt this upgrade will be well received as<br>
one of the many extraordinary experiences available to<br>
the @gardenofeden inhabitants, our members, &nbsp;<br>
and our <a href="https://steemit.com/gardenofeden/@gardenofeden/visit-the-garden-of-eden-book-a-stay-through-airbnb">AirBnB guests as well</a>.</p>
