Question Shower Stall Curbing

I have a built-in shower stall which I am remodeling. It was made up of 3 tiled walls and an opening with a shower curtain. I'm replacing the opening with a glass pivot door and a side wall with a glass panel. The wall I removed had damp and rotted wood at the base. Now I need to rebuild the base to match the front curb (height). How do I do this? DO I used pressure treated 2x's and cover with green sheetrock? Is the anyone who sells shower floor liners that I could use?

BTW, I will be tiling the curb to match the existing section.

Thanks in advance,

Mel P.,

In removing the curb, you would reinstall in the same manner. I would suggest using W/T lumber and use a cement board - NOT GREENBOARD. Then apply your tile with thin set adhesive.

I am assuming that you are installing a new shower stall liner and will be tiling. Home Depot, Lowes or a tile store can provide linesrs for you with the proper adhesive when installing them. These are sold in rolls so you determine the length and you pay by the foot or you can purchase a precut size at Home Depot.

I have attached a link on how-to;

Hope this helps!
