Tile to tile it measures 63.5". American Standard Acrylic

There is a half wall on the right side that I don't want to remove (or I'd need to redo the whole side of the bathroom, I think).

I am prepared to redo the tiles around three sides but I'm not sure how I would fit a standard 60" tub in that space. Not sure how I would find the correct sized tub.

Hoping to avoid big delays or extra city permits.

Good Morning

The easy route would be to make the half wall thicker.

Cort, if you go to a standard 60" tub, I would suggest just adding a small addition to either side, like a shelf. It could be at the tub height and you could tile the surface with the same tiles as the rest of your bath room tiles.

Remove the tiles and frame out the short wall to standard width. Install new tub and tiles.
