Replacing 47" shower with 60" shower/tub
Posted by Larry on November 16, 2002 at 17:41:11:
I currently have a 47" shower in my master bath that I would like to replace with a new 60" shower/tub unit. The width of the room is 60" total. There is currently an offset of 13" in the room for the existing shower unit.

My plan is to remove the existing unit....knock out the 13" offset and then install the new 60" unit.

Everyone is telling me I am getting in over my head by wanting to attempt this myself. I don't see removing the old shower as a major deal, but I don't know alot about plumbing and wonder whether I should be attempting to install the new unit. Also....will it be an issue getting a new tub/surround unit into the room?? My door width is 29" into the room.

ANY information or advice would be appreciated!

Thanks, Larry
