Need to Move Tub/Shower 1" - Dont see anyway around it
I am glad to see a forum that supports DIYers out there, and hope that I can receive some guidance from the members.
I am in the middle of a bathroom reno and am ready to install the new tub. I have replaced a tub before, but had no issues as both were standard sizes.
The previous shower surround was the plastic 4 or 5 piece kit - being replaced with ceremic tile. The length of the shower was on the cinder block firewall dividing the semi-detatched home. As a result, the studs used previously are only 3/4" thick! With the new weight of concrete board and the ceremic tile, I believe I have no choice but to beef up the studs to 2inches. ( i wouldnt want my mother in law to get crushed :rolleyes: )
That is where my problems start, if i add an inch to the studs, it will throw off the center line for the drain and plumbing to tub and shower which is exhisting. What is the easiest way to adjust the tub/shower plumbing over by one inch?
Thanks for reading my post, and I look forward to your input.
