attic shower

any advice on installing a shower in an attic bathroom? should i just install a shower pan and frame and tile the rest or is there a way to frame the sloped ceiling to allow for a standard shower enclosure? thanks for the advice

Re: attic shower

If you have enough height on the low end you could frame in for a shower enclosure. You don't want to allow a lot of water near the underside of you roof so make sure you can keep that from happening. If you can frame in a ceiling you need to use moisture board on the top and bottom of the ceiling joists. You also need to locate the drain line so that you can easily tie into an existing drain/vent pipe.
