60" Tub


I am trying to find a 60" tub with the smallest actual dimensions.

Any suggestions?

currently there is a there a fiberglass tub shower insert.

it measures from drywall to drywall 58 1/2"

It seems a bit tight and I don't want to struggle with getting the new tub in shaving studs down.

Thank you

Re: 60" Tub

I bet when you remove the drywall, you have 60" stud to stud. Thats all that matters.

I rough frame my tub opening to 60 1/8”

Tub/shower doesn’t go over drywall.

I frame mine to 60 1/8.

That's ok. My standards are higher.
