    Default Shower: Plumber or carpenter?

    The house: a 152 yr old house; 90% original. I don't want to tear it apart to fix things, because I'm affraid of doing damage to irreplaceable floor, ceiling, etc.

    The problem: We have a shower on the 2nd floor that looks like it is leaking where the shower wall meets the pan. We didn't notice it until the wall next to this joint starting looking like it had water damage. It also looks like it may have leaked to the 1st floor bathroom and dining room shared wall.

    Question: Do we hire a plumber to fix the shower and carpenter/plasterer to fix the walls? Or will a carpenter be able to tell us enough about the shower problem to fix it our selves.
