I designed my basement bathroom around this fiberglass shower enclosure and pan. I had planned on a 5 foot wide bathroom, so this was a large size unit that felt open. Its modular construction, in four pieces, made it easy to carry. I had it unpackaged at my local Home Depot to insure there was no damage. The first one had a pan with a broken corner, so they reordered it. This is a wise thing to do as the management can see right away that it is not your fault. Then we placed it in my P/U to take home. This leaves the trash back at HD to deal with. Once home we took care in storing the pieces so they would not be damaged. My basement floor was not stubbed for a shower or toilet, so we had to break the floor and add drain pipes. I wanted the shower pan handy to insure that the drains were located where they should be.
Once the toilet and shower drain piping was completed and the concrete put back in, I put in the floating stud walls, (building inspectors coming when needed to sign off each step) the shower pan was placed. After the rough plumbing, electrical and mechanical was signed off, the insulation was installed, then the rest of the enclosure was snapped into place. The design is clever as the side walls fall into features in the shower pan and are locked into the rear wall. I could take the side walls in and out as I determined where the faucet hole should be. I placed the spigot above the enclosure so I only needed to bore a 4" hole for the shower faucet. I used a new hole saw to get a clean cut. The panels have lots of ribbing for strength, but because of the type of faucet (A Pfister) I needed a flat area on the back to clamp the thin wall to the faucet, I ground the ribs around the 4" hole back about 1/2" from the hole edge.
I would suggest pre-drilling the mounting screw holes to prevent cracking the fiberglass on the mounting tab. I made the opening for the unit 1/4 more than the instructions said, which made the sheet rocker have to do more work in furring the drywall to the enclosure. The pan is a bit awkward to fit in a "U" shaped room, which is why I gave it more space. I used a block and tackle arrangement to hold the pan in the air once I ensured the drain was aligned correctly, which gave me room underneath to spread two bags of mortar. Then I lowered the pan over the drain pipe. The pan is rock-solid on the concrete floor now. On a flat wood floor you don't need the mortar.
The only thing we haven't figured out next, is what kind of shower door to put on it. My project has taken 6 months to do, as I had to fit traveling in between the different steps. It was nice to have the pieces handy as I was putting in the studs.
We are now ready to put in the tile floor and drop in the toilet.
