Installing new tun

Sorry if this is reposted haven't seen first post yet
Tearing out old bathtub and walls. Wondering if I put the walls back up first so the tub butts up to the gyprock or put tub against studs put gyp rock down over the bathtub lip with a small gap on bottom to prevent wicking?

Head down to your library and peruse any of the neat DIY books there about bathrooms. Black and Decker sponsors a BIG one on plumbing that covers much of that, and the installation guides from Kohler which can be downloaded free are terrific. All will tell you, 'square, plumb and level' is a must. There are so many ways to make mistakes on such a project that early planning is absolutely vital. You definitely need coaching on the properties of your materials to get a first class job.

The back of the tub may be built so it rests on top of a horizontal 2x4 nailed very securely onto the studs.. Square and level VERY important.

You're a damned liar, Roy.

Penicillin will help that.
