Giving this thread a bump.

I may simply put some teak trim against my timbers and use a caulk to seal the transition area.

Does anyone have any experience bringing tile up against a timber?

Thanks for running those numbers Lou_MA. I appreciate it. Perhaps I might have enough floor delta as I have drawn it (2 3/4"). I might go a little more than 1/4" slope but I haven't decided. Here...

Bump. Just curious if anyone has any thoughts on my curbless floor framing design. I think I may need 3 1/2" to 4" of delta between the substrates. 2" might be insufficient.

Hi prodjsaig,

The structure is actually 12'x18' and the bathroom (wet room) is about 4'6'x6'. I would most likely run the floor joists across the 12' span. I could possibly do a girder at the 6'...
