reversing the tub
Currently, our shower/bath is in an alcove with the controls on the short side on the right, When we replace the tub, I would like to have the faucet for the tub on the left-hand side so I can enjoy the view out the window (very private where we are). The short left-hand side is an outside wall.
I read in one of these GW bathroom discussions that it is possible to have the showerhead on one side and the tub faucet on the other. It would be my preference to keep the showerhead and controls on the right (inside wall), but to move the tub faucet to the left (outside wall). Is this possible? Is it safe to do in New England? Is it possible... or preferable to place the tub faucet on the long wall, as that is also an interior wall (but wouldn't interfere with my bathing and gazing out the window)?
The current tub is 58x32, with a couple-three extra inches possible for additional width when we re-do the tub.
