Direct-to-Studs Bathtub with Glue-Up Surround
Can a glue-up tub surround be installed with a direct-to-studs bathtub? To avoid a domino effect of problems, I hope I can install a direct-to-studs bathtub, install drywall above it, and glue a tub surround onto the drywall. Is this feasible? Even if mixing these two types requires more work than using just direct-to-stud or not, it will be well worth it, as the drain/vent pipes for the washer on the other side of the wall won’t allow the amount of framing a direct-to-studs surround requires, and only a direct-to-studs tub will fit.
