When I am in the shower I (personally) don't care much about looks. Having the curtain hitting my elbows or being sucked against me by the draft created by the flow of water from the shower head creates more of a concern to me than the looks. Functionality over looks for me. Guess you are more into your feminine side than me.....just teasing you Jaz.

Yes, my feminine side. aka the wife! I swear she changes the bathroom decor 3 times a year.

I like the curved rods too. Only used one with it in hotels so far.

Caved and had plumber do the hard stuff. 200$ and 5 hours later, the tub is in (leveled and shimmed), he put two shut offs behind the access panel and adjusted the drain and overflow to the new tub.

I just need to add a little more height wjth the thinset while putting the floor tiles.

Never calling this plumber again though; he cut so many corners. I guess that's why he only charged us 30$/hour.

I just finished framing the back tub wall which doubles as a linen cabinet. I'm going to add another support in the middle so theres no flex with the cement board.

The only problem is that the entire wall is fastened to the exterior wall so I'd like to atleast be able to fasten it to the floor, which is deck mud now. I'd like to try to sink a couple of wood screws through the mud to catch the subfloor (and then maybe the ceiling wherever I can detect wood with my sud finder)... Will the former require concrete screws? Just asking because the sand doesn't seem that hard.

My framing was all off in relation to the CBU so I had to beef it up a bit:

Before you cover up the framing, you may want to add blocking where the shower curtain rod will be hung if you are going for a non-tension rod. Also you may need additional blocking at the base of the tub for the backerboard to screw into.

Advice on Bathroom Remodel


What is better: tension-rod or the ones that screw into the wall? I mean, those things aren't supposed to hold weight, just the shower curtains...

And by the "base of the tub" you mean right under the mixing valve?

I can't put more than this because of the pipe:

One plumbing note:
The tub spout----most plumbers use a threaded drop eared flange for the tub spout--
That is the same as the shower arm fitting---then screw that securely to the framing==

Add a stub out with a male fitting----just a suggestion so you don't have problems when you go to install the spout.

Can't I just slide my tub spout over the pipe and secure it with the allen screw on the underside?...rather than screw it

It's personal preference. I like the curved rods and they are more secure screwed in.

I mean the small section of wall that will be next to the bottom of the tub. When you hang the backerboard you'll need a place to nail/screw into

What exactly is a stub out with male fitting and how do I get it onto what there is now? I just checked and my tub spout is threaded.

Throw away the threaded spout and get the slide on one with the set screw.
