Is it do-able?
Installation will be done by a Plumber.
Room is 65" x 60" entrance into is door opening of 24".
The Bathtub will be 32" x 60" K-1219-l.

I cannot cut into the walls of the rooms adjacent.
But ok inside the Bathroom, hopefully the Alcove Area.

Thanks for your help.

How high is the ceiling? You'll probably need to take out anything else in the room - vanity, toilet, etc., if they are in there.

The room is 98" high.

Toilet will be removed, that is everything.

As long as the tub is not deeper than 22" or so, you can get it in the bathroom area with no problem. In fact that particular tub, The Hourglass, is 20" deep so you'll get it in with a little room to spare.

How would i get the Tub inplace once it is in the room on the 32" edge
and upright?

Left hand drain. Which end should be up and how would the tub be
placed into the alcove?

Thanks for the help

Stand on end, then lower, probably with the drain end up. You'll need access either from the end or beneath to make the final hookups.

can you lower a 60" tub into a 60" wide alcove???
I am not sure, but i do not want to purchase a tub that cannot be
installed in the room.
