Tiling bath surround


Bud, the tub manufacturer (American Standard) recommended shims for where the tub apron meets the studs?

1) Take out the kraft faced insulation and replace with un-faced insulation where the shower surround is??? Can i slit the paper with a blade a few times to open it up or what??

Yes I think so. That's been done a lot to my knowledge.

1) Should i start with the back wall correct?

2) Should i install it vertical or horizonal?

Depending on actual dimensions of the walls I generally start with the back wall and lay the boards horizontally and then install the end-walls vertically. Doesn't matter which as long as the board edges are supported by a structural member.

Generally seams that cross-over the stud bays don't require support behind them.
