Tub to Shower Plumbing Issue


Good morning!
I am converting a tub to a stand up shower. When I pulled the walls down, there was a lot of old water and termite damage, so I've had to re-stud most of the walls. My issue is that the plumbing for the space (hot and cold) actually come from the slab.

When trying to put up some 2x6 cross supports for my shower pan, I noticed that they actually seem to stick out from the edge of the studs, making them protrude from where the wall would theoretically be rehung.

Trying to get fixes or ideas for workarounds on how to get past this spot in my project! Can't figure out if I can attach pictures here, but I have some.

Thanks in advance!

JM

You may have to cut dadoes in the cross support to where the pipes will fit. Then attach no-nail plates over it so you don't forget and drive a nail through them

Just more fly in the ointment. Have you changed the drain from a 1 1/2" to a 2" yet? Will you be centering the drain? If so, you have to dig up concrete anyway.

That's kind of what I was thinking, thank you! I haven't converted to 2" yet, but I plan on leaving the drain off center and using a pitch system to get the gradient right for drainage. I think you nailed it, and once I pour in the shower pan, it should be fully covered.

Thanks again!

You don't "pour" shower pans, so if you need detailed instructions on how to do it, let us know, as we can link you to it.
