custom shower/tub, several questions
Posted by Tony on May 05, 1998 at 10:23:15:
I am considering building a custom shower (or shower/
tub) rather than buying a tub or tub/shower combination.
I do not seem to be able to find information on several

1. In a house with one bathroom, does code require
you to have a bathtub?
2. Is there any material, such as a thin concrete,
or plaster, or trowel-on material which I can use as
the surface of the basin and sides (6-20" walls),
rather than tile?
3. If there is not, then will tile with the proper,
normal underlayments be adequate to form a bathtub,
or is it too much work, weight, etc. to bother?

I'd love to hear from anyone who has done this, whether
it is worth the work, or if it should even be attempted.

Thank you,
