Advice on options with a cast iron tub and cement board consideration
I am remodelling my bathroom and had a few questions I was hoping to get some guidance on regarding my cast iron tub.
1) The wall studs next to the tub are about an inch away from the tub. Does the cement board need to be over the the rim of the tub, or can that distance be made up with caulk or something?
2) Also, its a tiny bathroom, I'd be curious about moving the tub that 1" towards the wall. Currently the floor is cement with tile laid in the cement (the floor is coming out). I am worried about moving the tub because it is so heavy, and information about this subject would be appreciated.
