I think this is the information Eisa was looking for. If anyone agrees with a method or has a different one, please post below.

How I would fix the problem (which is what Schluter will say)

How John Bridge would fix the problem

How Laz would fix the problem

How Dana would fix the problem.

We should be hearing from Schluter next week.

Eisa,

I know you posted photos, but I guess I'm not really sure what the question is?
  • Is the Laticrete niche coming out or staying?
  • If it's coming out is a new one being built?
  • What is the significance of the stud in the corner?
  • Did some of the fibers indeed come off? It's not clear in the photos.

And I guess the big question (still unknown) is what Schluter will warranty? I would think their correspondence is critical in any decision.

Any of those 4 listed ways will work.

I like Paul's idea due the size of the tile and make it more pleasing to the eye.
( isn't that Gerald would say: "Pleasing to the eye".

Provided the current shower gets finished as planned, we return to Eisa's shower this coming Monday to finish the tiling, then grout on Tuesday.

We finished the walls today after boarding over the niche. We installed a corner shelf on the other side.

That shelf looks really thin. What did you make it out of?

The shelf is made from the same rock hard porcelain as the curb top and bench top. the usual 3/8" thick stuff, nothing unusual.

We had an easy day today and installed the shower floor tiles. The afternoon will be spent cleaning the workshop.
