    Not FIBERGLASS......PLATE GLASS.

        Gotcha... I thought that sounded funny but the shatterlines gave the unit more privacy. You could just put in the necessary blocking and let the tile guy figure out how to pad out the wall. You know the ol' "screw the next tradesman play". Just kidding of course. I just found this site and figured I'd throw my $.02 in.

          You might be able to put a block flush with the front of the wall and secure the valve supplies to the back of the block? This has worked for me in the past. The hold rite/pex rite brackets are a nice luxury. I am not sure where we get them but we use their brackets and turnouts sometimes. Somebody in town must have them?

          It could be worse, you could be working outside tomorrow, -38

          I am glad I have inside work for the rest of the week. I am finishing up the Capital X dream home tomorrow. What a dump!

          Granted Kohler & Grohe are pains in da keyster, but thats the first I ever heard a Grohe called a Junk/DIY'er.
          Elaborate, yes.
          I would pay money to watch a DIY're tackle one for the laughs alone.

          I am just bitter because that’s all I seem to install lately. Why can’t everybody just buy Delta and PP?

            Be carefull with the block in the front.Anymore these days you are going to be keeping the home owner from using their shower for a month after the rest of the house is done while you are waiting for the extensions to come in because the valve was roughed in too deep.

            How thick is your finish product.5/8" bullnose,1-1/2" quarter round,1" greenboard and mirror(lame).

                  Re: grohe valve rough-in

                  installed all 3 systems now. what a joke, interior desighner from hell. i had to install the roughins on 2 of the showers twice becauce they decided to make the walls shorter and add more glass, the third shower is on its fourth install. desighner specs say a pressure balanced shower valve with a tub spout and a handshower with a diverter valve. homeowner supplied a soaker tub that is deck mounted, end result a 12" long custom plated tub spout and a bulkhead foe a rain shower head. i also have to put a floating oval shower curtain bar that goes around the perimeter of the tub a full 360 degrees to kerep the deck dry lets just say the back charges are a comming 3 days work for myself, one day in total for a co-worker, 3 days for two carpenders, a dayand a half for electricuians moving pot lits back and forth, reteuning parts ccustom ordered and rush shipped from wholesaler big bill

                    New cable tv series: "When interior decoraters attack!"

                    When the designer/decorator starts casually slinging the pencil and making "improvements" on exisitng dimensions, it means MORE money.
                    When explaining this and the reply is "You were paid to install it, thats final", your reply is "I was paid to install it once...to THESE specs".

                    Been there, done that...always a good time for all involved.
