For a closet you shouldn't need a permit or anything. Unless it's a condo?
As to your other thread, have you considered a plastic shower enclosure with the nice glass doors instead of tile?

Thanks dangermouse, for my other thread, I had repaired the shower by removing couple of tiles from wall and shower and replacing backboard by duraboard, retile and grout and it looks good for another couple of years.

Keep in mind the required clearances for the furnace (and return air requirements) and electrical panel per code from the new walls, if applicable.

Be safe, Gary
