Convert a washing machine hook up into a shower.

I am looking to remodel my current 1/2 bathroom/laundry room into a full bathroom. I have a toilet and sink already in the room, but would like to convert the area where the washer and dryer are into a shower. The water lines are there for the washer as well as the drain line/pipe for the washing machine... How do I go about installing a shower using what is already in the room? Any and all help/tips/etc. is appreciated.

Your question is a little vague. Pictures of the area might help get a response. Obviously you are going to have to relocate your washer drain to accommodate a center drain shower floor. I think the recommend a 2 inch PVC pipe for this. Your washer drain pipe may already be 2 inches bout some are 1.5. The hot and cold supply pipes can be used for the shower valve.
