Lightbulb Convert shower to bathtub in basement

I currently have a shower in my basement but want to convert it to a tub. Of course, the base is cement. Would this be too tricky to attempt to do myself? If the drainhole is the same for a tub as a shower, then can't I just dismantle the existing shower and install a tub and the appropriate plumbing?

The only problem as far as the plumbing goes is that the plumbing tends to extend under the level of the floor for the drain of the tub.

You'll either have to raise the tub or chip out some of the concrete under the tub.

Then it is a simple matter of lining up the waste and overflow assembly with the existing drain pipe providing you can attach to it easily.
