Yeah, the thinset under the backer is there to support it, not to stick it down. So, if it has moved enough to turn it to powder then it's probably not supporting much. I think you did the right...

I don't have a snap cutter for long tiles. I'm curious, how wide of a rip can you make on a snap cutter when they are 36 to 48 inches long? Looks like the longer they are, the wider the cut would...

Chris, like you said, caulk or silicone is what's recommended and what most use. I mud my walls so I use grout in all my joints except where tile meets the bath tub. In a shower, I use grout...

Well, I don't understand. I see the wall that needs to come out in the second pic (right side of shower) but not first pic. I'm talking about the actual curb that meets the left wall needs to be...

Yeah, the gap in the foam is usually at the bottom as is the silicone, like Woldgang said. And the plate usually isn't flat but domed a little. Make sure the hole in the tiles are cut large enough to...

If the floor feels solid and you know there's thinset under it then you can decide if you want to leave it down. You'll have to make that call.

I would get my eyes down close and have someone walk...

I don't know if it has been mentioned but in your very first pic, the curb at the bottom of the pic needs to be inline with the wall at the bottom left. Not go inside the shower like it does now. The...

No, my wife got tired of cleaning up after them and with kids in the house it was too noisy. Parrots select who they like and dislike. The yellow Nape talked well but didn't like females. I kinda...

In the amount of time it takes to get those pieces cut out, you could probably have the whole floor gutted.

I wouldn't allow the dry wall mud over the tub like they have it. Membrane over it or not.

I once had a high end builder call me. After talking about 10-15 minutes mainly about prices, he said that he had never paid that much before. I asked why he was expecting me to be the same price as...

Here's a piece of 6x12 marble that I used on my last mosaic floor. A 12 x12 is even better. I'm actually surprised it has lasted this long. They usually break bouncing around in my tool box. :)

Sounds like an old mud bed. I would make sure it is dust free. Being a little damp from mopping won't hurt but like the others said, no standing water. If you think you need a membrane, put it down....

Not trying to be rude but I don't like the layout, Jim. Looks like you have a 1/3 stagger that repeats every other row. I think if you would have went ahead and staggered it 1/3, 1/3 1/3 then the 1st...

Steve, it's looking good.:tup1:

By the way, there's really no need to place two spacers in each vertical joint. No wonder it's taking so long. :D

Don, I don't know the answer to your question but you said thinset was used. Do you think maybe it was premixed thinset that comes in a bucket?

Cx probably has tender feet. :stick: Many times we will pull the pebbles off the sheet and place them a little closer together. The sliced pebbles aren't too hard on your feet. :)
