To guarantee a waterproof shower system manufacturers like schluter will guarantee that your shower area will not leak if there membrane is installed as per manufactures instructions as well as material.
My suggestion is to use a mud type base and use the schluter kerdi membrane instead of the schluter premade pan and this way you can make the shower base any size you want. To make it truly a waterproof membrane you would have to incorporate the sill as well as wall and drain into one whole schluter kerdi membrane. You will however have to build the slope yourself which isn't difficult and a lot less expensive.
To answer your question instead of using the schluter pan apply schluter kerdi as your waterproofing membrane. It's much less expensive. Go to there web site and it will give you the details. There are other membranes on the market that will also give you this option. I will be doing my kerdi in a week so I don't have any photo's at this time.
The kerdi membrane install should look like this:

Thel price of $450 was just for the Pan and drain. (32" x 48") and thats with my discount. No Kerb or fabric.fieldhousehandyman wrote: ↑The styrofoam pan, with kerb, drain, and all the kerdi fabric to do an entire shower complete is between $450 and $600 depending on which of the three sizes you use.
I don't think that is particularly outrageous.
I have done two, exceptional results, bought first when kit was close to $900 (about five years back?) and the other paid over $700 a year and a half ago now. Prices seem to have bottomed now though.

The Schluter premade styrofoam pan can be cut to size, so you can make the shower base any size you want.
