Tub/Shower niche

Post by susa » Mon Sep 24, 2018 10:10 am


Is it okay to install a tub/shower niche on an exterior wall if you insulate well behind the niche? I don't feel there is enough space on the faucet and showerhead end and the other end backs up to an outlet and light switch in the adjoining room (don't know if that's an issue or not). I plan to use porcelain tile above the tub/shower combo.

Thanks in advance for all replies!

Yes that would be fine. I would use 2" rigid foam insulation around it if you can.
