    Lazypup, there was one inspector in Northampton, John Pacorek that said no receptacles -or- switches within reach of a walk in shower or bathtub converted to a shower. Ed Marchefka before he died [from Greenfield] said the same thing. When you think of it, water and electricity don't mix.

    Wall switch to shower....

    Hmmm....not to possibly complicate things further: The actual shower stuff, that is handles, faucets, etc. is on the far wall end of the tub. That switch is on the wall opposite. And is now about an actual 24" from the vertical plane of the tub exterior.

    Bob,
    I feel we are killing a dead rat here. Have your son call your building services and ask the proper authority. After all, I'm assuming you put in for a building permit before you started this project. The powers to be will have the last word. Then if you want to pursue the validity of the claim, go for it! - Hayzee

    Circuit....

    The powers-that-be gave it his blessing. It was far enough from plumbing to not be an issue. As it turns out, even the sink across the room is closer to those light switches than the tub/shower plumbing! But, all is good now, and the rat can rest in peace!
