newbie shower builder

hi guys
i,m about to turn my 2 piece bath to a 3 with a homemade shower stall that i,m going to build and tile. but first i have to start braking the cement floor for the drain. my question is what,s the best way to water proof my shower stall walls and floor?
can i use water proof drywall or is there some thing else that is better for the walls and ceiling?
there,s a subfloor over my basement floor so how can i build the shower floor?

any help on this subject or where to find it will be great

Hi Joe,

Make no mistake we will help you every step of the way. Your topic is probably the top subject around here. So popular we have a link to our "liberry" that outlines the steps for building a good shower.


Since you are on a slab, skip the tar paper and metal lathe that goes in the pre-slope.

Read up and come back with any questions

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