I have a question about handicapped accessible shower- how much do the joists below the shower need to be carved out? My guy has never done this, and he also wants to use a copper
MY answer below



 Floor was 2 inches below the grade of the existing shower floor but it was made by raising the outside floor 2 inches not lowering inside the shower?? And why would you pay hundreds for a copper pan when the rubber pan liner is less than a hundred drain and all ?? and copper wouldnt allow for a "speed bump" like curb.. The person who wants to use a copper pan is obvously still in 1950 thinking mode and you should read my blog "rubber liner vs copper pan" explaining the reasoning behind not useing a copper pan. regards chris
