How do I replace a shower with a bigger better shower?
 
At pesent I have a free-standing shower (touching only the back wall). I want to replace with a nicer shower(one that is not free-standing - touching 3 walls). I will not be able to find a shower that is exact size between the present side walls. I will need to extend the two side walls out about 3 to 4 inches to meet the shower walls. What is easiest type of wall to build? Do the shower walls have to be glued to drywall or will plywood work? I am limited on placement of shower due to the drain which is exatly 18 inched from the back wall.

Why couldn't you move the drain?

Couldn't you just demo the existing and tile-in a new shower? Make sure you DO NOT use drywall. You can use cement tile backer and/or waterproof membrane before tiling.

Good luck.
