We are expanding a half bath to add a shower stall. I'm trying to determine what size shower pan we can/should use.
The width of the room is 54.5" stud to stud. Our depth is flexible up to about 48". When installing the shower pan, do you build the wall over it? Basically, I'm trying to figure out if we can use a 54" wide shower pan.
Also, if we use a 48" shower pan (which seems to be a standard size) how do we build up to it to take up the extra space?
We'd also like to build a bench into the stall if that makes a difference. The space is fairly tiny, but we realized today that we can move the shower a bit further away from the toilet which helps, although the deeper the shower is the less space we have from the toilet.
Thanks in advance for your insights!!!
Start by reading the ceramic tile topic on my website at www.bobf.info. While you are no doubt talking about a plastic pan, I tell you there about joining the walls to the pan.
I have a seat in my shower; bought it at Home Depot at a good price. Being movable, you can move it out of the way to clean under it. I can also position it where I want it. I really think a fixed seat can be a problem, unless you completely block it in place.
