seat on acrylic shower pan


hi all again!

I am framing up a walk-in shower. 32x72'

If I get an acrylic shower base that is 32x60", then build a 12" shower seat at the end of the base but not on it, is that a usual way of doing things to waterproof it?

Better to build on top of the base? Get a larger base?

Its just there's a good deal on the 32x60" base now, and would like to get it only if it makes sense to while also incorporating a shower seat.

I highly recommend you do NOT build anything on the fiberglass pan. Consider this; http://innoviscorp.com/better-bench There's many other options you can research, but be careful of some of the You Tube videos out there.

Come back when you've narrowed your choices to a few. Also let us know how you plan to waterproof the walls especially the lower part.
