bathroom renovation

We're planning a moderate bathroom renovation this Christmas. The tub and shower surround desperately need to be replaced. The previous owner was kind enough to put the tub in crooked, in addition we have a cheap plastic shower surround that's gotta go. I'm scared to find out what's behind that bad boy. Rotted studs?

My dad lugged a bathtub out here from Illinois when he and his girlfriend visited in May. So we'll be installing the new tub along with a white subway tile surround. The fact that we've never installed either doesn't deter us. We had also planned to replace the tile floor with white hexagonal or octagonal tile, but have since scratched that off the list. Too much, too scary. Plus we'd have to move the cast iron radiator.

Here's a sampling of subway tile surrounds for inspiration....
