Not sure how much ply is there yet. What do I need as a minimum? 3/4"? I dont plan on using Ditra for this small space. Should I tile over the newly added ply or do a ply/CBU combo?

I'll be using a porcelain tile. Not sure of the exact thickness but its not the thick kind. "Regular" thickness compared to some of the heartier ones I've seen.
