Thanks again CX. I've got my detailed tactics straight now!

One other question as I am thinking ahead. I am doing the walls first for logistical reasons. Is there any waterproofing that needs to be done on the floor in front of the tub? The slight water damage that I have observed when gutting the existing installation was on the floor in the corners outside the tub.

Now that I have completed the worrisome tiling parts of my project (the shower and the tub), I am moving walls, commodes and vanities before tiling the floor. When taking up the old tile floor, there is lots of evidence of water outside the tub area. The subfloor does not seem to have rotted where I have pulled up the tile, so nothing too extreme, but enough to get me thinking. When I am ready to tile the floor, should I waterproof there as well? My guess is no, since that would essentially just trap the water underneath the tile, but wondering if maybe a band of a foot or so from the tub and maybe around the commode might at least disperse the water.

You can certainly do that if you wish, Kevin.

The most frequent damage is usually seen at the bottom of the walls at the corners of the front of the tub, but not uncommon for it to damage a wood subfloor in those area. Waterproofing and tiling the "tub leg" prevents much of the wall damage, but you can certainly protect the floor as well.

That way your water damage will occur just past your waterproofing, eh?

My opinion; worth price charged.
