You've got a pretty good mind! You are right, the pan covers the total bottom floor area, and then the constructed seat also needs a pan or splash pan or membrane extending eighteen inches up the wall behind grout and tile, in front of the durock or hard board or green sheet rock, and then bending at the seat to cover the framing and durock or hard board, and then bending again at the knees to fall into the shower pan. Then the thinset and tile and grout and sealer go on top of that. Remember to slope the seat 2 percent (seat to knees) to drain the water from it when the shower quits
