Another issue with leaving the drain against the wall is with the opposite wall being 5' away. In order to get the recommended 1/4" slope per foot the opposite end of the pan will need to be 1.25"...

FP, I think you may need to wait until you remove the existing floor and then determine what you need to do to prep for tile. Once you understand how much height you will have to add you can then...

Remove it all.

It appears that you currently have vinyl flooring - which is thin. It might be on top of 1/4" luan, which you'll have to remove. Then you'll need to go back in with at least 1/4"...

Makes sense Jeff, thanks.

And you've done it exactly one more time than I have, which makes you far more experienced than me. ;)

Jay,

I'll be installing Ditra Heat also, and have read several posts that it's a-ok to fill the Ditra one day and then tile the next, or later.

If much later though probably a good idea to...

Welcome Kristie.

It seems to me that a glazed ceramic tile isn't going to absorb anything, including a sealer. That means it's going to just sit on the surface of it, then dry, then likely wear...

That's exactly what I would do Paul. I'd rather have a half height tile at the bottom than have to try to fill that rounded triangle area with silicone. The only other thing you could do is go with...

From one over-thinker to another, dude, you're over thinking this. :D

It appears the biggest advantage is that the membrane is pre-applied/laminated to the pan. And I'm pretty sure I saw that they are available with a line drain. I didn't look all that closely but...

Gardner,

Won't matter too much Glen, except to the inspector. Fill it so there's a couple of inches in depth at the drain. Use a stack of quarters, or anything really that won't absorb water, and fill it to...

"Better Bench" - any install do's/don'ts?

Though progress is being made it's only in the form of drywall taping/mudding/sanding/priming so I'll spare the pics of that tedious bit. However, the flush mount 1"X2" night light did turn out...

You're correct, if you make the perimeter level then the 18" section will have a steeper slope to the drain. Kinda the reason to strive to center the drain.
