Ok so I'm a first time home owner and trying to convert a bathtub into a walk-in shower. I have read the easiest way is to buy a prebuilt shower pan but they seem very expensive($600+). I'm hoping I'm not getting in over my head...but if there is a mud base with a 1/4" slope and then another concret base on top of the shower pan/membrane am I right to assume there will be 1/2" total slope to the tile? How do you make sure the drain will end up in the right position when starting to build the pan?
