Dear TOH Members,

As I posted in a previous thread, I just moved into a house built in 1902 and the ceilings on the second floor are only about 7 feet high. Whoever "updated" the shower did a very lousy job, which we now need to re-do.

Two questions:
1) Any links/thoughts on a good shower design that is comfortable? I'm only 5'8", yet I still have to bend down to shower.

2) Ventilation - Since the ceiling is so low, the paint over the shower is peeling due to the condensation. What, if anything, can be done to protect the ceiling? I just don't want chunks of plaster (or drywal) falling on my head.
