With Craig's input, I can do this!

I was quite relieved to learn I won't have to go back to the bare studs. Right after our visit, I went to H. D. to get the recommended materials, arriving home just at suppertime.

I did get started after supper, but have run out of energy for tonight. Tomorrow will find me taping, mudding, skimming and smoothing the surface. I found a couple problem areas we missed during Craig's visit and will address them as well.

This work really is much like drywall repair and painting...stabilize, strengthen, bond, coat, surface prep. No huge surprises, just different materials and a few new techniques, I'm sure.

Once measurable progress has bbeen made, I will post photos to show how the job is progressing.

Thanks, Craig!

Before applying the Hydroban, the thinset on the walls needs at least a day to thoroughly dry after it cures so the Hydroban doesn't bubble.

Very welcome Dave. You got the skills!
I will stop by today to drop off the 9235 waterproofing. If you think of any questions, get them ready!

Update

I made real progress today.

I found a couple places needing screws, stoned the old thinset, slipped in a backer where soap dish cut-outs were, mesh taped, filled soap dish voids (mostly), and mudded the seamthat took me up to supprtime.

Then I dozed for most of the evening!

New photos follow.

Fully dry makes sense. No rush to apply moisture barrier...

Good job with the repairs.
Shame about those soap dishes and shelf.
Onward and upward!
