Hey everyone!
I've been searching around the web for a good forum to ask for help.. and here it is... and here I am.

I'm looking to install some kind of shower on my clawfoot bathtub. Typically, I know this isn't much of a concern as kits can be bought at a price. The issue I have is the position of the tub in relation to the walls that jet out.

I have a small bathroom, and there really is no room for any expantion. The tub is situated with the plumbing directly underneath a part of the wall the jets out... the lowest point of that wall being about 4ft high. Now I was wondering if it's possible to run the showerhead that is currently installed all the way underneath the tub, and bring it back up the other side. I would than have to clamp it to the wall of course and buy curtians, rod and all that jazz.

I don't know if anyone can help me or if I'm out of luck. My other option is building a bathroom or at least a standup shower in my unfinished basement.

This would be much easier with images. If they're needed to get any help, just say the words and I'll take some.

Thanks in advance... I hope I made sense.
