Advantech was mentioned earlier, was that ever installed? I always thought it had a waterproof coating over it that was hard to stick to.

Also, you mentioned 2 inch hex. Best I remember, Schluter...

AC, if you don't mind, tell us what you paid him for the pan so we can compare. I don't understand the patch behind the staple. Does the staple go thru the patch?

As with any type pan liner in...

I see the installer's business card on the curb. Apparently the demand is high.

The cracking issue is my concern but I've never heard if that being a problem. I guess fiberglass will have a little...

Peter, I'm sure you know more about fiberglass than I do. I have no idea what those are, I didn't notice them until you mentioned it. Maybe AC will get us a closer pic of what we're looking at for...

I'm guilty, lock me up. Hope you have a large jail, there are more. :D

So, between tile and a bath tub, what's best to use? Regular caulk?

With a little time, I can seemingly get all the old...

If you have to fur out the studs like I mentioned in post 16, a little thinner CBU might be nice if you have sheetrock to flush up with.

Durock and Wonderboard among a few others are true cement boards. Those you can embed into the floor deck mud, which you'll want to do. You can't do that with Hardi.

I can't tell how thick the...

In my opinion, if you're going to run a random layout (like wood floors are always done) then make it totally random. Drawing 2 is too calculated and too much like a pattern. I would run it similar...

Lenny, is that a pocket door? Whenever possible, when the door is closed, I make the edge of the tiles stop halfway under the door. Is that how you have it?

I would add more short direction joints and spread them out more evenly than what you have. Just because a tile will reach from wall to wall doesn't mean I would do it that way on every row. Running...

Yeah, I never thought about using natural fiber. Leave the grass 3 inches tall. And concrete holds water, just look at the Hoover Dam. No need for poly. :D All for less than a buck a foot. :)

Remember, you have the base thickness that...
