Would this work on my wall?
We have the same basic design now only flip flopped. I NEED my shower to be bigger. As of right now it is only 40 inches wide and less than 3 feet deep. We have a window above our tub like in this picture. My original thought was to move the window to allow for the shower to be bumped out further, but that is $$$$ since stucco would have to be done on the exterior, reframing of the window, etc. We have the tub right up against the shower (The pony wall between the 2 houses the faucet for the tub)and then there is this awful waste of space tile area that extends about 2 feet to the wall past the tub. I've been told by numerous people that the waste of space is just that-more than likley hollow.
So-the shower in this space(the picture) is 5 feet and the tub is 7 feet. So, whole wall is 12 feet. My wall is 10 feet. Do you think a 4 foot shower and 6 foot bathtub would work? I would love a stand alone bathtub, but if I need to use our existing one and just move it, I'll do that to keep costs down. So, what do you think? Does the design in the picture work because they have 5 feet so water won't splash every which way and it would with only 4 feet? Odds are we would just keep the shower head on the wall and not have an overhead one, so I'm thinking that would help with the splashing. What say you GWers?
