Hi Steve,

Now that you're no longer affiliated with a products company (technically speaking) I think we need a better handle for you. I'm thinking. :)

Hi Aaron, :)

If there is no leakage from the outside there won't be a moisture problem that I can anticipate. It sounds to me like you've got your ducks in a row. :)

Hi Howard, :)

Don't spray the mud with water before applying thinset.

If you have laid out all the sheets the way you want them you can kneel on them and start at the back. Use knee boards,...

I think Brian is being a bit too pessimistic. It is the same show year to year, but there is always something new if you root around a little. :)

The tile cops will probably yell at me, but I've used sheetrock screws for that through the years.

I usually install the side pieces (cut square) first. Then I just set the bottom piece at an angle. It is also cut square. :)

Welcome aboard, Jon. :)

My opinion only. I would either do away with the window altogether or convert it to a smaller, higher, window that is centered in the new shower. :)

Hi John, :)

I think I would use tiles large enough to go from countertop to the mirror. Cut them at the countertop edge if they're too large. That way you can simply bridge any holes or gaps you...
