Bit of plumbing, tiling and whatever else, so dumped it in here...

One bit of the bathroom is currently 1750 wall to wall... I want to install a shower mixer, pipes to come up from floor.
The wall the shower needs to go on also has the bathroom door.

The whole room is stripped and needs replastering.

Now rather than have a silly gap to make up at the end of the bath, i'm thinking along the lines of getting the room skimmed, then battening a 700mm wide bit with 2x1, to allow a space for the pipes to come up, then aqua panel the section above the bath ready to tile...

Plaster would reduce it down to about 1740mm, then batten and aqua panel, down to about 1710, then tiles would sit nicely over the edge of the bath without spacer strips and massive sealant joints...

Would 20mm be enough for the pipes and fittings to fit a shower mixer?

Sound like a viable plan?
I did think about doing the whole wall, but would then need to change the door lining too.

If installing a concealed shower mixer then you might be looking for a 100 mm void or more... if surface mounted you may get away with a 30 mm gap (pipes are going to be 15mm plus fixing)

Its a solid (well, thermalite) wall, so would have to be a suface mounted mixer really.
