I am looking to install the Delta 400 shower system from Home Depot. I chose this system because the price and setup works well for my current situation.
The issue I am having right now is that the rough-in needs to be 60"; however, my rough in is 60.75". Obviously, this isn't going to work as the shower pan won't be able to attach properly to the studs and the 3 piece enclosure will not properly butt up to the studs for a good fit. So far from my research this is that I have seen should be done.
- Fur out one of the walls with .75 inch furring strips.
- Attach everything now that the rough-in will be 60"
- Create a small drywall return corner on the built out wall so that there will be about a 2-3 inch strip of drywall over the flange and .75 - 1 inch small strip of drywall cut out and placed in the small space caused by the furring out to create a tiny corner.
The only problem with furring out the entire wall is that on the right side I have a door and on the left I have a window. The wall with the door would be easier but I am unsure on how to extend a door jamb so that it would be flush. Does this make sense or does anyone know of possibly a better way?
For reference here is the location that the enclosure will be going.
