Rough framing a 3 sided bathtub
Posted July 30 2010 - 07:51 AM
Tony he knows...basically what he said was to frame the rough around the actual tub and that makes the most sense. actually my install instructions were correct and the tub is 3/8's smaller than what the install documents said to rough...so it should slide in there without trouble. I am not doing the installtion though. Building the alcove walls was a major pain when you're dealing wit twisted Doug firs...i haven't found any good ones since i started my project, been through around 60 studs so far.

Either use a surface water proofing and plane the cbu inside the tub or seal your visiqueen to the flange and run your cbu to the top of the flange filling the gap behind the tile with 100 percent silicone so water can't wick into the cbu.
