My husband and I are in the process of purchasing a house that has VERY tiny bathrooms. We want to remove the existing tubs and place a shower surround into a small space at the back of the room. We have found shower surrounds that will fit into this space almost perfectly (32in.x33in.x78in.); however, we can not find any with these dimensions that have an outer edge that is build up like a tub. We were hoping to find one that I can still give my young daughter a bath in.

Do they exist? Who makes them? Where can they be purchased? We are on a budget, are they expensive?

I don't believe you will find a standard tub that will fit in an area that small. Anything you do in this situation is going to require a custom made tub or something retrofitted. Neither option will be inexpensive. About the best thing you could do is to have one made out of tile. I have seen this done, but you have to work with a specialist.

Good Luck
