Welcome to the forum, Zane. :)

I'd have to see a drawing to tell you if your idea would work. It's not something I've seen or heard of before.

What I can tell you is that you don't want...

Floor too. There's no saving any of it, based on what I see.

Welcome to the forum, Jae. :)

Unfortunately, there is no salvaging that shower. When they're built over bare sheetrock, water infiltrates the walls quickly, as you can see.

I would put some tissue in the pipe to block it from catching trash, then see if you can get some gravel down underneath.

I'd rather know what you have there, but I don't know what that black...

Welcome back. :)

First, the flange does need to be off the slab 3/4" to allow for the thickness of the mud bed under the liner. That bed will slope the liner so that water follows it to the...

Yeah, after my post I thought about foam board instead of fiberglass or cellulose. I was wondering if R15 would meet code in Delaware.

R13 does well enough here, but it's a different climate,...

Just a thought, but what if the surface was hit with a couple of good coats of something like Redgard, then regular mud work over that?

If it got wet, it could be washed off easily enough without...

Yeah, I think any mud that you use that would hold up to a floor wouldn't be sandable to the degree you'd want for a finished look.

And any mud that's sandable would put you right back in the...

Wouldn't dividing the dye packs in half only give you about six pounds for each one?

I reckon you don't always know what's going to happen when you do only some of the work.

Seems like a waste of money, though. They could've got the same mileage out of cement board for a lot less...

Also, what goes in that space between the floor and bottom of the wall board?

Depends on the tile. If it's a soft wall tile, like the 4 1/4" tiles, a standard masonry bit will go through them.

If it's more dense, like a porcelain tile, it'll take something different. I...

Not that it matters now, but I can't help wondering how it shifted so much to make the drain that far out if level, but the basin still fits.

Did the riser shift, or was the drain glued on crooked?

Welcome back, Joe. :)

First thing I would do is find out for sure if the subfloor is 5/8" or 3/4". While you could install tile over 5/8" ply, that's the bare minimum thickness. I wouldn't...

If you have a good slope with no dips or humps that might impede the water from draining, then you can proceed as planned.

Just make sure you get the Kerdi drain flange flush with the floor...
