Make sure they are putting the ditra heat on a dedicated circuit as schluter requires. I know most bathroom sizes won't take up all 20amp and you could likely get away with a shared circuit, but it...

First layer will be T&G but I think I'll block anyway. I have all the 2x4 I need. I just have to notch them for the engineered I joists. Only have to lay about 80sq ft of it so blocking won't be...

Does that apply to anywhere in the room there will be an edge or just around the edge of the room? Because I cut away subfloor I will have to block all the way around the room for new subfloor. I...

Just keep in mind if you have engineered I joists the schluter video for recessing the subfloor to be flush with the top of the joists doesn't apply. I ran into that. I ended up using 2x4 material...

Good point. What I meant was no interest in planing off 1/4" or anything. So far things are lining up within 1/16" so it's looking good.

Quick question about mold. There's two or three places in...
