  1. Turn off the water

    Find the water shut-off valve leading to the tub, and turn off the water. Turn off both the cold water valve and the hot water valve.

  2. Remove pipes from the drain

    Take apart the p-trap, and unscrew the pipe from the tub drain.

  3. Remove the faucet from the waterlines

    Using a wrench, unscrew the faucet from the back of the tub. Remove the faucet and handles.

  4. Remove the surround

    Cut off the head of the rivets on the surround with a knife. Then, use a utility knife to loosen the caulk around the perimeter of the surround. Once the surround is loose, pull it off with your hands. Do this carefully to prevent damage to the wall.

    Using a drill or battery-operated screwdriver, remove the screws from the lip of the tub.

  6. Lift the tub out of the space

    Once you remove all the screws from the lip of the tub, ask a friend to help you lift the tub out of the space.

    Adding a room (or extension) to a mobile home will often involve new foundations for what will essentially be a separate structure, however, "mobile" homes with more permanent foundations can be extended with a stick built addition.
