My home is 70 yrs old and has 2 bathrooms upstairs (back to back) that have the old sand trap instead of a "P" trap on the drains. The tub plugged and the seal broke on one of the sand traps. The plumber recommends tearing out the old cast iron built in tub and replace all the old pipes as they run under the tub. These bathrooms are small, approx 6'x6' I would like to replace the old tubs w/a showertub combination, however there is a window right in the middle of the wall where the tub/shower would be. I would like to keep the window(s) there a feasible way to tile the walls (YES they are lath/plaster) and can 6" tiles but laid on lath/plaster ? How should the window area be done/tiled?Thanks for any input....
