Hey Jason,

You lost me on the free form. Are you talking about building walls out of block?

Set me straight here..

Good..Fast..Cheap. Pick any 2...can't have all three

Hi Jason,

I would install a shower pan liner with a proper drain first. There is quite a bit of info, pictures and diagrams in our "Liberry." Click the link at the bottom of my reply.
