Getting a standard 5' tub through RO


OKAY. This one is going to have me scratching my head for a bit...

5x7 Bathroom.
Tub is running the 5' width.
Cast Iron...

Standard 30" Door.

Removing the old one is cake.
New unit will be 5' as well.

Just short of doing some quasi angle as I bring the tub vertical into the room, any ideas
how to get a 5' tub into a 5x7 room and laying the tub back along the 5' side.

The only option seems that the other 5' side of the wall needs to be demoed to get her in and just
run her up the side

The only thing that will hang is the front edge of the tub, if the wall covering is gone at that point it should lay on down if the drain end is on the floor.

You will want to remove some drywall in front of the tub area---Bring it in on its drain end---

two strong people can set it down easily enough with one on the skirt side one the other on the back side. Then slide it into place---
