Yes it would, but the drain connection for the linear drain would be close to where your drain is now. Most likely you would still need to bust out concrete to make room for the linear drain.

I'd probably use a small bead of PL Premium trying to avoid letting any mash out. Let it set before grouting or caulking.

Yep, the air temperature has a lot to do with it. It'll last much longer in cool humid conditions than it will in the hot dry weather. Mixing small batches is the key.

Hi Gary. You'll likely break those tiles trying to remove them so I would rule that out unless you have extra tiles to replace them with. The tiles can be trimmed in place except on the very ends....

What the others said. Over the years I've had a handful of showers that I've tiled that had the drain on the end like that. I couldn't move the drain because the homeowner didn't want to go to that...

Hi Cheryl. You may have heard the negative results when someone uses mastic with large tiles, especially over a membrane. The mastic will dry very slow in that situation.

Like Cx, I'd use what ever mud I have handy but use a little thinset first to bond the new mud to the old.

That's not a grout I use but I would let the grout get firm in the joint. How fast the tiles absorbs the moisture in the grout will determine how long that takes. I'd say 20-30 minutes would be about...

What grout do you plan to use? 30 minutes might be too long to wait for some grouts.

Tim, you might have to post a pic of your drain and tile so we can see exactly what you're doing.

I've never used that brand but if it's a base coat and finish coat all in one then I think you could tile over it without a problem. I usually want to stick a scrap piece of tile to it and let it set...

If the tiles have a cushioned (rounded) edge then the grout joint will finish out wider than the spacer you use because the grout will come up over the rounded edge. Looking at your pic, those are...

Mastic will work but I would probably use white non sag thinset like Pro-lite. Thumbs up on using wedges. For irregular or rustic tiles, probably 1/8 joints. I butter most tiles like that. :tup1:

It might be worth trying a sharp scraper. Home Depot has 4 inch wide scrapers in the paint dept. I just fear it might want to dig into the Wedi surface and damage it. If it would take off most of it,...

I've noticed several Wendys restaurants with tile planks on the outside. I haven't watched them install it. I assume over CBU.

You might use tape and thinset on the transition like you would a corner. Maybe that will help stabilize the Hardi, not sure.

Yep, I always tell customers that I don't like the slab straight thru into the shower as a seat. That needs to be a separate piece that has pitch. Like Dan said, put the seam right under the glass.

I wouldn't patch it in. Since it's a small floor, I'd try to talk her into retiling the whole thing. Especially since it's stuck right to the wood and some of the wood is rotten.
