    There is plumbing roughed in for a 2nd bathroom. There is room to put a tub in, but the drain is 17" from the studs on the short wall (where the 30" tub width would go) and 15" from the studs on the long wall (where the 60" side would go).

The room was framed but no drywall was hung (walls still open). Oddly the room was partially tiled (nice tile, no walls). Access from beneath the first floor is...

    Hi, My issue is this, the tub downspout is right up against a joist, normally I would notch the joist but this particular joist has been notched to death previosuly (not by me). in one spot the joist is about 80% notch.

    I'm trying to replace the drain in my bathtub. I have bought 3 different drains and none will screw in all the way. One hardward store employee said that some manufacturers may have different threads on their drains and that is why the drains I have purchased won't fit properly. I can take...

    We recently had some professional plumbing work done on our 1950s ranch home. The tub is orginal. The drain is 1 1/2" and they put a 2 3/4 D drain shoe (standard) on the tub. Now there is a rust ring (apparently due to some poor tub refinishing work in the past that was previously covered up...
