Welcome aboard, Harry. :)

What's the silicone for? I presume you're talking about a PVC liner. The curb corners are usually glued on with the glue that is sold for that purpose. :)

Hi Dustin and welcome. :)

I think I would remove the piece on the right and make a new one to match the left. The niche is well away from the shower spray and high enough on the wall that it's not...

Hi Fox, :)

I would install a good grade of 1/2 in. plywood (that's minimum) and then a tiling membrane over the top. Ditra is what I recommend. I wouldn't guaranty that installation. For a...

Hi Patti, :)

I think the color product they'll use is probably a solid color (like a paint) that is topical. It should make all the grout the same. Be sure to jot down the name of the product and...

Hi Alex, :)

The tiles don't appear to be unglazed porcelain to me. Looks like they are pitted and the grout is in the pits. If that is the case you may never get it out of there.

Aside:...

Hi Justin, :)

Looks to me like the flange will fold right up the wall on the wall side. https://www.schluter.com/schluter-us/en_US/Shower-System/Drains/Schluter%C2%AE-KERDI-LINE/p/KERDI_LINE

Hi Steve, :)

The joint is a problem, and going over it with any method is chancy. Ditra, although it is not marketed as a crack isolation membrane, is certainly a good idea, and I would use it....

Hi Darrell, :)

I'm no longer in the Houston area, and I can't come to look at your shower. ;)

But you can tell for sure whether it's a Kerdi shower by removing the trim plate of the shower...

Hi Lisa, :)

I'm not sure what the holes are for. I guess they might want shower water to seep into the tub area instead of resting on the shower side. I don't know why the wall would slope in that...

12.5 is fine, Steve. The norm is actually 12 in. from the framing, but a little extra just means there'll be a wee bit more space behind your toilet tank. :)

Dan,

You don't have to be a sissy to avoid flying in small aircraft including helicopters. I've avoided them since I returned from Viet Nam lo these long years ago. I've met Jim a number of times...

Hi Warren,

The videos were probably made before Schluter's mortar line was launched. :)

Isaac,

Jim was with Merkrete. He's bounced around a bit since I've known him, but it's not unusual in the tile industry. :)

Hi Mark, :)

When Ditra is used in a situation such as yours it goes beneath the heat directly to the slab, so there is no way it could inhibit heat. Schluter also has a product called Ditra-Heat....

Hi Paula, :)

Like Bubba, I've never encountered a frame on a glass block opening that was going to be tiled in. If it's possible I would eliminated it. Checking with a manufacturer is a good idea.
