Extend it up from below if possible, and use a...

One other red flag to me is the size of those tile on the floor. The larger the tile, the more difficult it is to get the bowl-shaped floor that's needed for proper drainage.

Considering the amount of backfall in that one picture, I'd not let the same installer do the new shower.

I doubt you'd get pieces that thin to hold together most of the time. I'd caulk one and see how it looks, then go from there

Welcome to the forum. :) Is there a first name we can call you? It doesn't have to be your real name, just something shorter than what's in your signature line now. :D

We did the same thing, Davy. We put them end to end to make a 10x 20 building. Dad stored some equipment for his bricklaying business in it.

I've had a few of those, the metal ones.

I mostly did them on a slab, not having the intention to move them in the future. It's about the most expensive foundation, but also the most durable if...

I wouldn't use shims. Just secure the plywood with screws and...

I would go with a floor sander unless you just have a small area to sand down. Working that floor down with a belt sander will wear you down very quickly.

Since it's technically outside the wet area, use a corner bead there. There are plastic ones available, but some sheetrock finishers don't like them.

Yep, that'll always show. I don't see a big problem with the gaps. It's best to keep 1/16"-1/8" and consistent as possible. If you start to stray outside of that, it'll show.
