Failure point 1 & 2 & 3

1. I am not a shower CSI, but the white residue on the wall and pipes suggests to me that the shower head leaked or that the moisture barrier (fi-foil) was not effective in the way it was applied. The fact that for studs 1" x 3" (you can see it in the pic) and 1" x 1.5" were used as oppose to the common 1.5" x 1.5" studs probably didn't help either (since the drywall ends up resting directly against the copper pipes).

2. Greenboard was used (without even any topical liquid membrane on it). Need I say more?

3. The moisture barrier (fi-foil rolls) was overlapped but not taped which I think it means it wasn't really doing much of anything.
