Depends on the area that you live in and what you end up picking for tile. Will there be a new door? You're going to need to do some plumbing. Install new fixtures. Which kind and brand? Probably going to need to rip out some insulation? Figure in painting the whole bathroom with a new coat of paint. Lots to consider before ball parking a figure without visiting the jobsite. If you can't save for the job, credit isn't a bad idea. If you can pay it off within a reasonable amount of time and the extra load won't hurt you.

8014373200181 is the upc number on the back of the tile I am in need of if anyone knows where to puchase. Originally from HD.

plus updated pictures will post as I go, from what i gather shower only leaking around door area.. see rotten wood. The other sides have been dry as can be behind the cement board. I have peeled some parts of liner and wood is dry underneath. Will post more pictures as I remove floor.

Jaros from What i have seen there is no membrane at all (see picture 3).....just board mortar then tile.

Look at pic #2 no protection on the small 2x4 that looks like it was used as a spacer.... Tile was directly on top. Water hit that area daily!

No-way. Had a hunch that would be the problem when I made my post back at #11. I love it when I'm right!

HAHA good eye... i pulled the rest of liner out... everything is good but the door area. the step going in shower was 2x6's sitting side ways... Considering the amount of mold outside the shower from water splash, i was thinking of building wall higher.. maybe 2x8 or 10 what do you think?

Still want to provide that good write up on doing the pan..... HD just sent me a 20% off $600 purchase

Plan on tearing out the seat and doing something different as well any idea's?

No real need to do that. Showers using 2x wood for a curb is generally three or four 2 X 4's stacked and waterproofed, this has always been sufficient. This method gives you a nominal 6" on the outside of the shower and a nominal 3" on the inside. Of course your shower curtain must stay inside the curb or your shower door must fit properly.

Here’s the scoop on a conventional-build such as what you have now:

Here’s the method I would recommend, this is state of the art right now:

Roam around Harry's website there's a lot to learn there. Harry is in Canada where the techinques are basically the same as the U.S. and Harry has been generous enough to offer plenty of good information on his website.
