If the sides and tops are getting done too my choice would be to have them NOT protrude beyond the face of the tile, if for...

In that case I'd go ahead and screw them to the top plates.

My first thought would be to screw it to the top plate, but if you only have 1.5" (or less if the drywall is on the ceiling) there the screw will probably be too close to the edge of the Durock and...

Ewww, gross. :D What's that yellow-ish stuff?

A Kerdi shower is proven to work, and the system has been around for decades. But like anything else it must be installed correctly. I've seen some...

Niches in a 2X4 framing aren't very deep, I'd add a little depth with an overhang, and incorporate some "ears" on each end. Gives a more finished look IMO. Ditto for the sill.

Give yourself 1/8"...

You ought to be able to grout that right now.

Since a washer and dryer are going in there I'd give the grout a day to cure before moving them back in, but would wait a week before using them.

You are correct in that a roll on/surface applied water proofing material can, if installed correctly, replace a sub surface material, like a rubber/PVC liner.

I understand that you have surface...

Certainly could make a run to the BBS and grab an arm or two. Perhaps one will have threads that start 180* opposite of where the treads of the existing arm start.

Still, a lot of connections...

I'm not sure a bunch of TT will get you there, Greg, and the arm might still too loose when you go to tighten the head to it. An un-seen in-wall leak will be a buzz kill.

I'd probably opt to...

Not sure there are a lot of options, Joe, but I think I'd fill with modified mortar then skim it off with a blade. You'd want the mortar to fill in all the low spots around the stones then let it dry...

I think the between joists sections will be fine, Mike. I did the same thing and many of mine had about 1/16th clearance.

Good job, Michael, all the prep work takes a looong time.

It wouldn't surprise me, Stewart, if the vanity top isn't dead flat, nor if the vanity cabinet itself isn't off a bit.

Go right ahead and shim it.

Yup, same page, Kent, you'll want those corner joints to be about 1/8th of an inch.

The goal is not to fill the void completely, but enough that the caulking will adhere to the edge of one tile...
