I am having design issues for a sunken roman bath. I think i can solve this problem if i can have a wooden floor for shower. there is an exsiting floor already, so i would just design a wood floor to go over the exsisting tile floor, so drainage is not a problem. my problem is, will this work?, what concerns will i have with wood and water, and if it will work, what type of wood should i use?
any help please, thanks

Use the right wood and allow for drainage and you'll be fine.

Ipe', Cedar, Redwood, Cypress all come to mind as good woods to use here.

Hey Pif, I ran across one called "iron wood" when I was apprenticing with the historical board on Victorians 30 years ago back east...

Tough mother to nail too we needed a bike impact wrench to put in the drywall screws... anyway it doesn't float. May be a prime wood for this particular use. Have you heard of it?

I'd be worried about anchoring the duckboards through the membrane but with iron wood since it won't float it would be perfect no?
