Craig, left to guess I'd say that the drain itself wasn't failing but rather how the drain ties into waterproofing, Redgard in your case. It's often assumed that schmearing liquid waterproofing on...

I really can't think of any way to disguise the cracking other than covering it up. It will likely get worse over time.

Almost without exception, cracks like this stem from differential movement of substrate and/or tile assembly. A couple of questions.

Concerning concrete curb.

I've never done this but if I did, I'd mix the concrete on the dry side and let it cure before tiling. Plastic over is for a week would be prudent too. Typical time to...

Good catch, Jim. I'd probably leave the original frame and plate over the top of it and create a return to wall.

Some food for thought.

1. That's weird on the vent. Does it look original? I imagine it ties to other vents in attic? That would explain odor.

2.I'd consider removing the soffit over former...

If the gaps that shims create isn't acceptable, you could scribe the bottom of your frame to correct for slope. Essentially parrallel slope on the bottom and level on the top. Use shims to get level,...

I'd shim the walls 1/8". Depending on available width I might even shim 2 or3 inches and create a return because I like the way it looks.

It will take your eyeballs on the site to assess "clean", but if you can get to original material and remove most accumulated dirt, I think you'd be good.
