Adding a tub/shower to basement bathroom?


The shower surround's I've seen (and installed in our previous house... before ripping it out and installing tile) have all just attached to drywall with adhesive. Cheap cheap. I had a quick look on home depot's website and I see what you mean by the direct-to-stud shower surround's, but that's not what I planned to go with. I do expect to be pulling this out and putting in tile in a few years, a cheap stick-on surround will at least make the shower usable till then.

Tile is in the future, but this is in 'git-er done' mode, as per the wife. As this is the basement bathroom (bathroom #4...) it wasn't worth the higher quality surround due to the short life and low use.


Little update:
Mud/tape is coming along slower then I expected, but progressing. Final sand/coat should be Tuesday. There is a number of places where I am not particularly sure how he will be able to finish perfectly (as I would expect when hiring a professional), but I expressed my concern and I suppose we will just have to see when it is finished.

Still nice to have things coming together, excited to get to the flooring stage as the bathroom/bedroom and rec room will all be getting the treatment.
