After finally getting drywall up and taped, I took a gander at stacking some tiles in the tub area just to see how it would look.
Horrible!!! Why? because the tub deck is warped. My walls are perfectly plumb....I put a 4' level on the tub deck and there is a 1/8" gap under the center of the level. So the tiles that were resting on the tub deck were actually NOT level. I levelled the first tile, then continued a level line horizontally across the wall.
At the lowest point, the tub deck is 1/4" off!!
Has anyone ever seen something like that?
I cant believe I apparently had to bring a level with me to HD/Lowes to pick out "just the right tub". And now that its installed, my only choice is to make it work (waaaaaay too much work at this point to remove all the drywall to pull the tub out and demand a new one)
