Hi I have a 5"x6" curb less shower the opening is 5" wide the sub floor in the shower is 2 1/2" lower then the sub floor. It has a curb on one side that returns one foot to make the opening 4" wide any ideas on how to make corner (outside corner) the end of the curb ?

I think it would be helpful if you were to post us a photo or two of what you've got there, Wristen.

I'm thinking some of your posted dimensions should be in feet rather than inches, but even working around that I'm not sure what your layout is.

Perhaps some others can see it better from where they are.

Then give us a hint what material your shower pan liner is.

My opinion; worth price charged.

since your on a slab you will have a hard time using a liner.
maybe a liquid membrane will be better suited for you.

Mmmm, Brian? Why would that be?

We use liners alla time in showers on SOG.

I know y'all don't use'em at all in Florida, but most places actually waterproof their pans. Really they do. I am not making that up.

so your wanting to do a curbless with a liner on a wood subfloor?

I would look into Kerdi and Ditra to make the whole area waterproofed.

Then what? Shoot a bunch of holes in it when you put CBU down?


edit; i guess you could do a mud floor...

I can 'splain you, Brian, sometime not on a visitor's thread.

If you're on a wood subfloor, Wristen, you're really gonna hafta go with a bonded waterproof membrane shower system of some kind.

Even if you're dimensions and other considerations are adequate, you're not gonna have vertical room for a traditional shower pan and make that shower curbless.

My opinion; worth price charged.

well first of all I would only use CBU on a floor when I have a hight problem I try to always do mud even on floors wonder board is for those who can't do good mud work. I do have the room for a mudded shower floor because I will be floating the floor plus the tile will raise the floor to give me the room over 3". I need 3/4" of an inch of fall
