    Not quite sure what the question is. The typical shower head height is between 5' and 5-1/2' from the floor. If you're installing a fiberglass surround, then you're drilling the hole for the shower height wherever it's needed. If you're doing tile or any other type of surround, the the same still applies, you make the hole and height where it's needed.

    If you're remodeling the shower, then I'd recommend replacing the existing valve with a new valve, and because you're inside the wall, this is the perfect time to upgrade. After that, you set the shower height at whatever suits your needs.

    One-piece molded shower stall enclosures come in either 30"x30", 32"x32" or 36"x36" sizes - if yours is tiled there is a very good chance that they didn't follow any standard size and just made it as large as they had space for.
