    Beautiful...where is the drain for the hammock tub?
  2. But for the most part, the installation is the...

    But for the most part, the installation is the same for cbu and drywall if everything is covered with kerdi, right? The main difference being the screws that are used to attach it to the...

    There is blocking up high for a curtain rod, but this is just a tub so I wasn't even sure if I would install a curtain rod. I have been thinking that I might prefer a sliding door which would require...

    Yes, no shower. I was still planning on Kerdi on the drywall all the way up the wall to near where the tile ends.

    So would this work?

    1) Screw Durock directly to the studs (no vapor barrier behind it) from about 1/4" above the top tub flange (which is very small on these cast iron tubs, not nearly as big as...

    I was planning on doing Kerdi band around the bottom and the Kerdi membrane up to within 1.5 foot of the 9' ceiling (all the way to the point where the tile will end).

    I did see your blog post. ...

    You point is made. I am not trying to disagree with you because I know that your experience is far far greater than mine. Have you ever seen mold like that when kerdi was used over drywall? If so,...

    Thank you. The tub is very sturdy now and I also plan on putting the "legs" in as hj suggested. Also, I do plan on putting the Kerdi higher up on the wall.

    Are you referring to midspan blocking? I rarely see that in houses and the middle of the wall isn't even in the pictures.
  10. That is a good idea. Thanks. I shimmed the tub...

    That is a good idea. Thanks. I shimmed the tub with 1/16 galvanized steel plates today, and I made sure the plywood where the tub legs are sitting are directly over a joist or a 2x8 brace that is...

    1) I really wasn't asking for help with the drywall or tile (until it was brought up). Just the tub.
    2) My father's house was built (not by him) in 1972. We had four people use the same tub (the...

    I know a couple of people get really upset with the idea of using kerdi over drywall for showers, but this installation manual shows basically what I am doing:

    Thanks. The drywall now is about 1/8" above the tub flange. I was planning on putting sealant between the flange and the drywall, then putting kerdi all the way down to the tub flange and sealing...

    Thanks for the help!. So how far should I have the 1/2 nipple sticking out from the finished wall? Fortunately this is something I can change after I finish the wall, but I would like to do a leak...

    So it looks like I would need a 1-1/2 slip fit to female pipe thread (hopefully 3/4") bushing and then use a 1/2 pex to (3/4") pipe thread adapter.

    That sounds like a good option, however what type of fittings would I need to convert from the 3/8" pex to the sch 40 PVC pipe?
