I haven't work the a real CBU, but Hardi is a bear to cut! Just so you know! And not the best for a shower, if you ask me. I used it on a countertop, thought it would be easy. Came out fine. But...

I guess ideally, you'd remove the plywood and the planks, and start over. Barring that, how about removing the "not so great" plywood, replace with new 3/4", Ditra, then tile?

There is no need for cement board on the ceiling, tile or not.

If you insist on not doing a mud pan, make sure your floor is flat and level. Then check again.

lucky,
I think you are making this much harder than it needs to be!

First, remember that the tile and grout have nothing to do with waterproofing. The work you do before you touch a tile is the...
