I shared my post with my mom and she told the contractor she wanted the shower guy to do it with brick, and he's going to do it that way. Whew! I just hope he knows what else to do! Fingers crossed.

I'd rather not go a route that would prohibit me from grouting to begin with, as I don't want to leave it up for several years looking unfinished. I'd be better off not doing it at all.

Any way...

I'd plan to tile the area on the SLC.

Your point about SLC not being very good about leveling is exactly my experience... and the reason why I think it may be possible to slope it. Either way I...
