    Well, this is where I’m at with the bathroom as of today. Fun weekend so far! I hope to get the insulation and floor in today and order the shower tub. Which I will be looking for advice on installing. Any tips out there? Do I remove the drywall? The shower tub is one of those kits that come with the walls and tub. I think, from what I have seen, the tub gets attached to the studs, drywall above the tub (green board/ mould resistant) and then the “wall” sections get attached to that. Does that sound right? I know concrete board may be preferable, but there is a strict budget here….like no money at all…lol.

    We just completed a 4 piece fibreglass/acrylic shower/ tub combination and they are really straightforward. Wall sections on the one we used are attached directly on top of the tub rim and the green board goes on top of the wall sections only. You shouldn’t have any difficulties with the installation.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    So, I don’t have to remove the existing drywall at all? It’s floor to ceiling. I’m pretty sure there will be instructions with the kit.

    I could be wrong here, but I believe it can go against existing materials. The direct against stud feature is aimed at new construction the way I read it.

    Thanks Peter, I will read the instructions too….lol.

    Further inspection showed more water damage to the insulation than I originally thought. Wife had to crawl under and open the belly to get it out.

    Spent $1200 we didn’t have for the tub/shower, flooring, and a couple other items. That hurt a lot.

    When all else fails…. read the instructions. Install depends on the kit. From the ones I installed, the heavy fiberglass walls are mechanically fastened to the studs, and the one in my bathroom is bolted to the tub too The thin acrylic wall kits are attached with adhesive to green board installed over the tub flange.

    Absolutely right, read first. The one I just put in sounds like yours except the heavy walls are mated to the tub and to each other with alignment pins, them mechanically fastened to the studs around the perimeter. The board goes on over the flanges around the whole assembly.

    Jim, is the one you have made by Maax?

    This is the one we bought. Fiberglass. It will be delivered next week along with the flooring, so I have time to get things ready.

    You will be pleased. That is exactly the one we just put in. Very straightforward installation.

    Mine is a one piece wall kit….. that was fun getting it into the bathroom and into place

    Nice to see you got so you can still use the room. Looks like you will be busy once your stuff comes in. That is a nice idea using deck screw for fastening the sheathing down.

    I fought with a lot of rusty ones while taking things apart. Besides, I buy the big tubs of them and always have them on hand. They’re pretty cheap the more you buy at a time.

    Good, solid solutions to the problems you have had.

    I am sure you fight taking some rusty screws.

    I have bought the construction screws in big tubs before. I have bought deck screws before. I think my local hardware sells both screws in bulk now.

    Getting a bit closer. Still some stuff to buy for the tub install, but I have the wash centre just about done and about to start tearing out the shower to put the tub in. The last bit was taped today, Sept. 12, so it’s right up to date.

    One day at time till it is all done. Why did you move the wash center?

    It will give us a bit more room in the ensuite…and that’s what my wife wanted. She has been waiting 16 years to get her bathroom remodelled, so I guess I owe her getting it done the way she wants.
