I was just wondering what type of CBU you used on the walls above the tub. Were you able to waterproof the walls, especially the window?

As Sam said, it's not a suggestion, it's a requirement.

You mentioned wallboard around the tub. What's the finish covering going on these walls?

Yea, that's pretty bad, it needs to be fixed unless you go with carpeting. It'll look and feel bad with carpeting too but........

Why don't you confirm that? It's very doubtful that the vinyl is direct on the subfloor though. If not, you should be removing the 1/4" underlayment, with the vinyl still attached. .
