Roughing in a new shower


Hey everyone

I am putting in a 42 X 34 Shower in my bathroom. I was wondering if you can tell what is the dimension of the rough in walls do I need?

Thanks

We give up, is this a fiberglass unit. are you going to tile it?
If it's just a one piece unit all the sizes should be in the install directions with it or on there web site.

Roughing in a new shower


Sorry about that. The shower is a Sterling Esemble unit 42 by 34. It is a three wall set with a base not one unit. I will not be tiling it. My real concern is sheet-rocking around the showering stall. On one side near the door from the back corner of the shower to the door trim is about 36 and a half inches.

If the wall panel is 34---the flange is 1"--you now have 35"--yes---you will have a hard time drywalling that little 2 inch space----

If you don't have the option of making that wall wider----add a wood strip along side the flange so the area is flat---then add your 2 inch strip of drywall--use drywall adhesive---and maybe some finishing nails or staples to keep it in place until the adhesive sets up--

For corner bead, if needed, use a paper backed bead that is held by Multi-Purpose drywall mud.

I would avoid nails or screws in the board or corner bead--they will crack the thin strip.
