Questions about Gueuzeman's "shower hack job" video

Hi. I was watching gueuzeman's "shower hack job" here:
http://www.youtube.com/user/gueuzeman#p/u/3/rhuwXv8ahGc

and, was wondering what you did about the curb Mr. gueuzeman..??
I caught a glimpse of the curb in the video and it looks un-fixed..
and, for that matter, how did you waterproof everything?

I hope this appropriate to post this here and that Mr. gueuzeman is the same. And, well, that I'm in the right place.

Thanks.

Hi Tim.......

I'm gonna move your question on over here to the Professional Hangout where the "Gueuze"..... well..... hangs out.

Perhaps send the "Gueuze" a pm..... let him know yer' looking to palaver'.

This could get really ugly lol

Let's hope the Gueuze shows his humble side or not lol

I'm almost too excited to leave! The Gueuzeman is one smart fella and has an interesting way with words. Not quite the same as CX. CX uses some kind of Jedi mind trickery.

To Poster: Have you read the franken gueuze shower thread? Gueuze only does liquid waterproofed showers. AFter the mud dries he paints them.

I mean no offense to no one.
I think I'm missing something.
What did I say that was offensive??

and yes, I read the franken gueuze shower thread. Well, about 14 pages and then the last page so far.

From what I have read over the last month or so, there are a lot of guys here that paint on their pans. I got the opinion it is a satisfactory way to do it. No?
It's all new to me..

Can you guys allow me here in the pro area being the hack that I am..

Not a thing. Gueuze named that video "shower hack job". I think Ben interpreted it as you calling Gueuze out as a hack. Just my guess though.

It was the title of your thread. Gueuze is one of the best installers out there even though he probably wouldn't admit it. He does some of the most tedious work there is. I've never meet him but I know he is very passionate about his trade, doing things right (above and beyond) and on the cutting edge.

^^^^guess I interpreted your thread title wrong^^^^ as mentioned. Sorry about that.

yep, no offense. And I'm sure the liquid lover will be along here shortly to explain it too.

As for painting pans, less than half of us on here do that, myself not being one of them.. But done properly they are good showers. Its about what you are comfortable with.

Perhaps I could change the title to something like "Questions about Gueuzeman's "shower hack job" video"?

Done, Bob. Good suggestion...I think the title you suggested is far more appropriate.

I think it is Maine. Somewhere out there in dial up land.

Wonder what the mud box is like without him there. Scared to even look/lurk.

Tim- I am by no means at his level. But when I do a shower with Hydroban (liquid membrane) I do the curb two different ways.

If the subfloor is plywood. I install two 2 x 4's and clad them with cement board. (thinset under the board at least on the horizontal piece) Mesh tape and fill gaps with thinset then completely coat with 2 coats of Hydroban including at a minimum 6" outside the curb.

But over a concrete subfloor I form up a concrete curb and completely Hydroban that.

Either way make sure the top of the curb has a slight 1/8" slope going back towards the shower pan.

Yes, Tim, Welcome and relax, I never thought he would be offended.... It was more just a good setup for his humor.
And there is a method to his madness......
quite well thought out methods.

If you look through his older threads sometimes I think he uses every waterproofing product he can find in his truck that day..... but honestly he has his reasons and has a wealth of knowledge about product applications.
