The P trap should be at the bottom of that riser, Dan, but which way it turns to connect to a horizontal drain line is still a mystery at this point. Start digging. ;)

BTW, be sure your slab isn't...

As mentioned in another member's thread the tub flange of the apron-less Kohler acrylic tub I'm using is nearly 1/2" thick. I'm using Laticrete Hydro Ban foam board for the tub surround, and in order...

Iffn that tub drain is the typical type, with a + at the bottom there's a special, and inexpensive removal tool available at probably any home improvement big box store.

You're probably right, Phil, though it says it's water proof it is still pretty narrow.

Welcome, Dan,

Looks to me like you'll need to rent a hack hammer and bust out some concrete in order to extend that drain by 2'.

There is a P trap down there somewhere at the end of that riser...

That tile tape is interesting, Phil, haven't seen that before. Looks like it is a viable alterative to the usual manufacturers 5" band material.

I dunno, Phil, after reading of your tub install challenges I still think mine was somewhat easier. And it certainly would have been if I simply followed Kohler's "directions". But nooooo, I couldn't...

Needless to say, Mark, whenever you can use a full sheet that would be ideal, but sometimes it's just not gonna happen. If I were using only the 3/4" layer I'd want to strive for full sheets but,...

Wow, turned out great, Scott. I was a little skeptical of the floor tile but it really works in that install.

Nice job!

You do have it right, Steve. Screw down all those planks first though, not just the patches. If you have any planks that have their ends meet over a joist you might consider pre-drilling and even...

Welcome back, Pete,

Lots of leveling (lippage control, actually) to choose from, and all have their pros and cons. A search in the forum will turn up half a dozen at least.

Tom,

I decided to fur out the studs to deal with the thick flange. The end wall of the alcove, opposite the plumbing wall, is actually 8' long so I furred the entire wall so the dry wall would be...

Welcome, Mike,

As for the shower valve you might consider Grohe, They have a particular 2 or 3 outlet unit that combines temp, volume, and outlet selection all in one. No separate valves and...

FWIW, Dan, I grouted my entire niche, and have read many others did too. While there are technically changes of plane they are all within the same wall assembly.

Don't know how tall your previous vanities were, Mark, but if they were 30's and if you're going back in with 36's you'll likely need to raise the drain lines. Had to do the same in my master, and...

Welcome back, Tom,

Being in the middle of my very own hall/guest bath remodel, I have some thoughts. ;)

IMO, eliminate the wonky knee wall bench thingy. Being far from the shower head and...

Mark, when determining the length of your screws I think you'll find that a minimum of 3/4" into the joist is just not enough. I did. The 1st 1/8" or so of the screw tip is tapered, so with only 5/8"...

I thought the same thing when I saw and read your post yesterday, Mark, remove it all. Doing so might also give you an opportunity to level the floor if needed and relocate that 3" drain.

I, too, believe the fleece to fleece contact is the key, and that's dependent on a properly applied coat, and type, of mortar. Too thick and the two fleece faces won't bond to each other.
