Yes, if you can fit backerrod in there then I would use it.

In general, you want the silicone to be wider than it is deep and you only want it to stick on the sides and not to the back.

Mesh tape and thinset the two inside corners and the seams and all the way around the niche. It ties it all together. Then waterproof. Caulking the corners isn't the right way of doing it.

Keep in mind, that just because the studs are flat doesn't mean that they were installed flat. But maybe they were?

I don't see why you couldn't just have the plumbers leave the drain pipe too high and put a plug on the end. Then when you're ready to deal with the shower you'll have to cut the pipe down and...

Tape off the tile especially where the grout joints are. Then caulk with silicone but use denatured alcohol to help clean it up.

If you're 'decided' then I like the idea of just running the Wedi board long and covering with the second layer of drywall.

But the undecided option works too. But, it's probably best to lap the...

5 qts sure seems low to me but I can't say for sure without mixing that exact product.

I second the Bosch laser holder. I also have the Bosch pole which is much less flimsy and shakey than my Zip poles. I never tried the Fast cap ones but I'm guessing they are better too.

I definitely would not go any less than a 1/4x1/4 inch square notch trowel. If anything, I'd step it up to a 1/4 x 3/8.

It's hard to comment on the consistency of the mortar without knowing more....

I think epoxy will be your best bet followed by epoxy grouting the whole thing, including the miters.

Otherwise, I'd probably just grout the whole thing. Acrylic caulk doesn't last and doesn't...

Everything they said above plus this could be an issue that you are having.

Try cutting the waste piece into smaller pieces. When it breaks it may be putting too much pressure on the ear.

You'll have to use a hard corner on the drywall and make sure the finishers get it plumb and flat. Then you can caulk that gap between the two surfaces.

Are you wanting to self-level the whole floor or just the low spot? If you're doing just the low spot then you can feather it out with just a flat trowel. Don't spray water.

If you're going with a foam pan why not just get the Ligno pan or have Rod make you a similar one? Then you can use the Rapid Recess system and have everything flush out.
