Almost done roughing in all this stuff. Shower drain is off center about an 1-1/4” so that will be getting moved. Going with a 28” linear drain and want it to look right. But all the shower stuff is roughed in finally. Need a couple more nipples for stub outs. Speaker wire and cables are tacked off in the general area they’re going in. I’m going by Ferguson’s tomorrow to make a template of the corner of the tub since it’s rounded to get the pedestal faucet valve absolutely prefect. I was going to put in center on the front side, but that’s the lowest point to enter and exit the tub at 19” and I can see it being used as a handle bar by the kids. So front right corner it is. But the framing is all done, shifted the entry door down with in an inch of the toilet room door across from it so the ship lap around the tub walls will be symmetrical. Ran a 1/2” pex line from my vanity to the steamer in the attic. 324 cpvc for the pan and relief line off the steamer. Gotta punch those outside, throw in some insulation, and she be ready for tile. I’ll be insulating the pex line as well. Damn it’s going to look good. I’m hitting the couch the rest of the evening with some COD MW2, untill the bolts game comes on.

I’ve been making them out of copper for yrs without issue. I use galvanize for the rough in though because it forced the tile idiot to make the hole big enough for my copper mip adapters to slip through to finish the trim.

You could even slip a piece of 1” pex over the 1/2” galvanize to make a bigger hole in the wall if you want. Then put the cap on the galvanize after the pex is slipped on. Makes a nice neat job because the tile idiot can fit it tight as he can but it still leaves you a big enough hole.

Yes, we also use steel for rough in nipples, didn't look like he was talking about the rough nipples though. It would be a shame to put in thousands of dollars of nice stuff only to have some rust streaks later on.

Coming along. Floor tile is laid and 1/2 the shower is done. Tub is sitting in the garage. I have no idea how I’m going to get it into the bathroom. That is one heavy Biotch.
