If I couldn't get clear direction from Schluter regarding applying Kerdi to those walls, then yes, I'd remove those panels and install Kerdi board, or something similar instead.

Have been doing my own tiled tub apron, Linda, and agree with both CX and Kevin. Install your framing and backer so that the tile will be flush/nearly flush with the front of the tub.

Hi Randy,

1) I don't honestly know if you can apply thinset mortar, then Kerdi, over those plaster board and plaster veneer walls. Probably going to need to check with Schluter's tech line.

Welcome, Sutton,

If the mortar bed is free of cracks and adhesive (you didn't mention what type of flooring you removed) and if you are confident that the underlying structure (joists and plywood)...

Some manufacturers make a specific glass tile mortar but since your mosaic has a mix of materials I'd probably just use a modified like Versabond or Flexbond.

Might work, Jim, the shelf should be solid SS, opposed to an applied finish.

Just be careful of over heating it, would probably cause bluing/discoloration.

I dunno, Greg, might fall under the might work/might not category. Certainly won't be optimal. The Kerdi corners also help lock the curb in place.

Given you have very little space between the...

Allowed? Yes. Preferred? maybe not. 3/4" is pretty steep across 8" but it doesn't look like you're going to have much of a choice.

PC shonuff has ya covered, but you didn't mention how thick the planks are, nor if they are tongue and groove.

Hi Jennifer,

Assuming your joist structure will support a ceramic tile installation, you should be ok with the 5/8 ply + 3/8. However, that assumes the 5/8" ply is tongue and groove, both layers...

Welcome back, Dan,

I don't disagree with your contractor. Water, which there will be a lot of, will likely over-run the linear drain if placed in the center. depositing water on the other side....

Using thinset mortar to fill imperfections in the mud bed is doable, Jake, so long as the areas to fill are not too deep or large in diameter. Filling them at the same time as you set the tile is...

A) Up to you. It sounds like your tile would support a 1/16th joint. Sometimes changing the grout joint size can eliminate "skinnies" (thin rips of tile). I prefer a smaller grout joint...
