Hi Brian,

I’m a big fan of tile shower floor but in your case I’d recommend a fiberglass base. Mobile homes are built to a different standard and movement in the foundation base is a common...

Have you checked the obvious stuff like leaks around tub drain or lines? Seems much more likely for “major water intrusion”.

If you add a support wall about 2 foot off of one side of the basement you could turn that into a storage closet. You really only have to move drywall from the ceiling in the area where the new wall...

Not to quibble but that floor looks like Southern yellow pine or similar. Splitting may still be an issue as jadnashua mentioned but not nearly as much as oak would present.

The slope does seem high but is fine as long as your are comfortable when standing in the shower.
