If you do that and find some of mine are an obstruction just let me know the numbers you don't need.

you can put the drain left right or center
for a shower pan, and walls it is around $1000.00
you can also use any tub you want and use this as te surround
very easy to install, it glues to the wall and the edges are sealed with silly cone
Neal, I think only members who pay are able to edit or delete posts that are more than a week old. I'm not even sure which ones should be deleted-- there are so many... LOL. Thanks for the link to the video.
Frodo, thank you for that link. I plan to go with a Sterling direct-to-stud shower unit. There is a shower pan that has a flange and the walls snap on to it and it gets nailed directly to studs without needing caulk between the wall pieces and the shower pan. It's relatively lightweight and I think it costs around $700 or less. I have to find the one I was looking at again... (Mom didn't like the look of the cultured marble-- I showed it to her and she made a face. LOL). The Sterling shower unit comes with built in backers for grab bar installation.
I know what valve and lever I want for the shower and tubs, tub spouts, shower arms for the tubs, and showerheads for all shower and tubs. I'm leaning toward the Moen Magnetix line of showerheads that click in magnetically and I'm thinking the waterhill arm would give it nice distance from the wall and some decent height (although I could still get a less expensive one). I was thinking of getting nickel fixtures for the guest bath but then I saw the prices and decided that chrome will do fine. Mom wants a slidebar for her showerhead and I'm trying to pick a good one that the showerhead I like will fit on. When I do a sort of master post I will collect the info on which showerheads, surrounds, etc I'm leaning toward and have links to them.
The shower/tub surround I wanted for the guest bathroom is no longer being sold at HD and I think it is at Lowes but is more expensive than the same version that has the backers. And having the backers for later on is not a bad idea.
I have a good idea of what windows I want (assuming that window can be used as a replacement-- I'll have to talk to the people at HD again).
I'm trying to pick doors for the bathroom and for the exterior. Need something that can have a cat door put in.
And I just got total brainfreeze...
Edit: For the showers I'm thinking of going with Sterling Ensemble. One is 60x30x75.25
for $647. The other is 60x32x74.5
