I've tried rapid set under Ditra and it didn't go well. The problem is that the bond wasn't good enough to hold but it had already dried so it wouldn't rebond.

You're better off using normal...

I think most brands want their foam pans installed with thinset mortar. I've only installed Wedi and Schluter before and both of those were thinset.

ANSI 118.11 grading is specifically for bonding...

Lighting and framing are the two biggest things that have helped me. I also invested in a fancier camera with a wide-angle lens. I still suck at photography though.

The shower only needs to be waterproofed up to the shower head. You can go higher, if you like.

Do you have any photos of this shower? The text is tough to read.

The easiest way to get your niche to line up is to cut it in afterwards. If it's already built, the odds are not good.

Hi Joe, a drawing would very much help. :)

First thing I would do is look into a system and try and find a shower system that has it's own drain. For a curbless system, Laticrete, Schluter, Wedi,...

All things have to start somewhere.

The CTI program has been a bit misunderstood, I think, as some feel that it's some sort of "master tile setter" designation. As a result, there have been some...

I think, if you want a saw that cuts 48-inches that you have to move up to a bridge saw. Imer and Raimondi make decent ones, I've heard.
