American Bath Factory Custom Shower Kit - 32 x 60, Single Threshold, Left Side Faucet
Nice Nice Nice
Just finished installing my shower. It's beautiful. I'm a novice at DIY projects but this was fairly easy to do. I had to tear out my old tub and luckily the framing that was left was square. The new shower pan fit right in the 60" space. I did most of the work by myself but I would suggest a helper as some of the parts (pan and doors) are heavy and pretty awkward to handle alone.
Most of the instructions are easy to understand and if you read and re-read you'll get it right. I was confused as to what to do with the mounting blocks on the doors but finally figured it out.
I purchased the plumbing upgrade and used sharkbite fittings. It sure made the plumbing easy.
My suggestion on this project is measure and re-measure.
I've had friends look at my work and they all think the walls are real stone that I placed piece by piece.
I'm going to remodel the basement bathroom and plan to purchase another shower system for that room too.

We remodeled our bathroom in our 1907 house. I found the shower kit online. My builder was skeptical about ordering this - he only installed traditional systems. I went ahead and ordered it anyway. I believe he became a convert. It was relatively easy to install. I say relatively because of course this house doesn't have a single square or level spot anywhere, but, after some adjustments it was installed and looks and works great.
