Hi Spencer, welcome. It's hard to say what the white cracked material is but most likely it would need to be removed with a small chisel. Originally the mud bed was gray but we don't know if it has...

I don't have a problem anchoring a treated 2x4 bottom plate/knee wall to a slab with Tapcon screws, as long as it's not soaking wet. Been doing it that way for a long time. If I were a Kerdi guy then...

Here's a pic of the tile. The fabricator will install a frame of quartz down the sides and top and also around the firebox. I'll pour a raised hearth tomorrow. It'll be covered with quartz too.

I'll bounce around if I can. I might mud the inside and outside of the curb and then mud part of the niche or front of the seat while I'm waiting for the curb mud to set.

Here's a fireplace we've...

You'll get all kinds of recommendations but since you already have experience with Kerdi, I'd lean that way.

I usually make a mud screed around the shower on float day. Then it's set and ready to go the next day. I haven't set tiles the same day as floating in a long time. I'm getting slower and the showers...

Hi Barrett, welcome back. There's no way to tie in a surface membrane like Redgard to the grate you have. It's not what you want to hear but you need to install a new shower pan. To do that, the mud...

Usually adding a few hundred pounds of tile to a fireplace isn't a weight problem but with this one being upstairs it's hard to say without knowing how this fireplace is supported.

It's hard to say. I've seen hollow spots break if something is dropped on them or stepped on just the right way. I've also seen the tiles flex just enough to work the grout loose in time. Sometimes...

The masonry supply that I use also has silica sand. They may even have it in several different grits. But, it's whiter than the blasting sand. The blasting sand is light brown.
