I don't think his plan will be any more successful than the original.

What kind of wall board is that?

And I suspect the drain construction is the problem, based on what we know so far.

You got any leftovers of that tile? I'd like to see how they're actually put together, so to speak.

I'm wondering exactly what the backing is, and how that green material appears to grow between...

Heidi, if you didn't do this on the first try, do it on the second time around. Besides combing mortar on the floor, skim the back of the tile with mortar so that you get a mortar-to-mortar bond. ...

That may be okay if he coated both sides and both edges properly so that water couldn't infiltrate the board.

But considering the Hardi recommendation to not bury it, it's just easier to buy a...

You could do any number of waterproofing hacks to try to keep water out. Some may last a while, some won't. Eventually water will get into the wall.

I understand your line of thinking, but I don't think I'd make plans based on the future tear-out of the floor. The 3/4" ply is sufficient for your joist spacing. You can choose to go with that, or...

It's possible that he combed mortar on one surface and just skimmed it on the other. It's a good way to get the proper bond.

But 80 square feet out of 3/4 of a bag would be more than a stretch.

Justin, it would probably still work. You'd just have to lift up one side of the tile enough to clear the wall, slide it into place, then set it.

I wouldn't like it either, unless it was a shelf for some really tiny shampoo bottles.

There's more than one way to build up that area to the thickness of three quarters and make it all even.
