I'm toying with the idea of rebuilding this shower as a curbless one (since I'm expanding it from a 3 x 3 to a 3 x 5), but have no idea if my space is big enough to allow that or if there are Texas code issues to respect. Any advice? I'm in the Austin area.

I think you'd be fine going curbless if the shower is 5' long, with the shower head at the far end. If you have a tub + shower still installed elsewhere in the house just take a test shower. The far end of ours sees no significant amount of water.

NO idea what Texas code will say about it though.

Regardless, you will want to locate the valves where you can turn the water on without getting wet, while still being able to comfortably reach them while showering.
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.
