Welcome to the forums.

Shower unit separate from the tile unless the tile is part of the shower.

That said, let's back up - what's the size, spacing and unsupported span of the floor joists?

Well I haven't got the old floor removed yet,My plan is to check plumbing under floor because this was a problem with old clawfoot tub.The new shower unit will be where the tub was and I will probably also need help with the drain for shower,getting it to main drain pipe.I am pretty overwhelmed with this job so far.I know I can do it,I just can't afford professional installation at this time.I can't turn back now.

One additional question - you're not removing the only tub in the house, right?

Starting from the begining...
What level of your house is this bathroom on and what is under it?
What problem with the piping did you have with the old tub?

Are you putting the toilet and sink in the same location as previous?

Bath is on second floor.Under it is front door entrance and hallway.Old tub would drain very slowly at times...would unclog it and it would be ok for awhile.Did not leak.My son broke the drain trying to snake it and I could not fix it so.I was going to redo everything so I started.Tub was first to go.I can see from partially removed flooring that tubdrain pipe was stainless like for a sink...Not right. Toilet and sink will be in same location.

If you lived closer, I'd be asking for pictures and how much.
