We are remodeling a bathroom and need to put a custom tub/shower in a space constrained by a chimney on one side and a plank wall (which supports lathe and plaster on the reverse side) on the other. We planned to line the 12-inch deep tub with Choroloy and then tile the floor, walls, and ceiling, but the tile setter is concerned regarding possible moisture damage down the road; he has recommended either a waterproof membrane (Schluter-KERDI) or a solid-surface tub ($$$). We obviously wish to avoid water damage to the walls, but how much waterproofing is needed in a situation like this?

Spend the money now on getting the proper waterproofing as recommended by the pro. If you find out down the road that you have a leak it will cost a lot more to repair.
