    Well my tile man is telling me it's quite expensive. About $8k vs a $600 cast iron tub.

    Yeah, it'll be much more labour intensive then just slaping a tub in. Go to Johnbridge.com and search for "roman tub" in the forums. You'll need a special drain and all that.

    Yup I was about to tell you the same thing. It's going to cost you quite a bit more to do a tile tub (properly) than to just buy one.

    I didn't realize how much more intensive it was as I was just equating to a shower pan floor. But I guess since a tub will hold water there are few more things to consider.

    ^^ Yup. It seems simple enough, but if you want it never to leak, you're going to spend money doing it right.

    Yes it can be done. We have done 13 out of travertine. Not cheap but look bad ass when done.
