New shower installation

In my basement I have an area in the corner that was at one time (I'm guessing) going to be used as a shower stall. The hot and cold water lines are there (hooked up to the shower head), and drain hole is located below. On a scale of 1-10 how much work am I looking at as far as enclosing this area.
Any links that show a step by step to doing this shower stall install would also be appreciated.
Thanks, Steve

At the lower end of your scale, the easiest would be to pour a dam with quikrete in the corner. Install a shower curtain rod across the corner and turn on the water.

Shower Stall


You could do what tedn333 but unless you are thinking of other things for this area, like a 3/4 bath in the future, I would suggest further considerations.

I have a link to what you may want to do but suggest a framed shower stall, using 2x4 W/T stock on floor and cement board if you intend to do ceramic tile. Less expensive way would be to frame, install a premanufactured shower stall depending on drain location. This would do fine for now until you make other improvements for a future bath. For the money and time, this would be easiest and for future improvements, you're halfway there. Besides, it's great for resale.

Look at these links and hopefully you're answers will be here;

Hope this helps!
