Good job, Chris. :tup2:

Did the same tile in a shower last summer. Really got a workout those days. :)

I'd still skim the back of every tile before setting it.

I'd also go with a 1/2" trowel. I prefer the 1/4x1/2x1/4" trowel for better coverage.

And having two guys to spread and set would be a...

Well, I guess I saw the "hydro" part and my brain filled in the "ban" part on its own. :bonk:

Still, the whole thing is a mystery.

Welcome to the forum. :)

I'm going to say "no", without even asking all the other questions that your post brings to mind. I can't even imagine how hydroban would be used to set tile.

If it's already dried, you'll need to remove the grout in the problem area and re-grout.

Try letting it set a little longer before starting the clean up.

Looks like tile over Stratamat to me in the latest picture. I can't see any tile backer showing.

It wouldn't be unheard of to use both, but I still don't know why anyone would. They both serve...

Well, I don't get the part about using a tile backer (if that's what it is) and Stratamat together. There's really no point in doing that, and just makes another link in the chain that could break....

That's almost 100% correct. :)

You will have to secure the lath with nails to only the outside of the curb. Nowhere else.

It's a good idea to over-bend the lath a little so it hugs the...

The 2x4 porcelain tiles I set weighed right at 47 pounds, if my memory serves correctly.

They require plenty of work space, and a large flat surface to lay them face down so you can get mortar on...

I'd probably just get a sheet of 1/2" Kerdi board and make a custom niche. You could probably make several out of one sheet.

Tec Power Grout will work on joints that are 1/16".

I've had good luck with it, but it does set up pretty fast. About 45 minutes of working time. Definitely not for the slow worker.

I'd seriously consider Dan's advice on this. I think it'll be the same or less work to just replace the sheetrock, and probably turn out looking better in the end.
