    I used to have a boss that liked the saying "it looks good from far, far from good". It does look good as a finished product but I have concerns. The wet wall doesn't look stiff enough. Is that niche cut into an exterior wall with no insulation behind it?

    I might suggest you install a few weep holes on the bottom side of your shower unit. I have found that there is a little build up of moisture inside the box and a few weep holes drilled in the right spot can help keep this from making things nasty back there.
