If I'm understanding that, please don't. I would never start a subfloor with anything less than nominal 3/4" material regardless what I'm putting on top.

No way to really tell what it will take to remove the cultured marble receptor, but it's likely a simple matter of brute force with pry-bar and pounder.

My opinion; worth price charged.

You can technically angle that P-trap in any direction you need for proper riser placement.

Those penny rounds are not easy to set correctly, but it can be done if the tiles are properly placed on their mesh backing, which is also not always the case. Staggering the...

What Goldstein said about the 4" to 4 1/2" grinders is true also for 4 1/2" to 5" grinders from at least one manufacturer (Makita). Same tool, different guard.

My opinion; worth price charged.
