That thinset your arrow points to is but a smear of the mortar used to adhere the patch. Not sure I understand your question, but that thinset shouldn't be thick enough to interfere with setting the...

Yes. It's actually possible to do some tile installations without a wet saw at all, but I rarely even consider that.

There are cut tiles sometimes that can't be installed with the surrounding...

Looks like one of ol' Frank Lloyd's minimalist creations. :rolleyes:

I'd still fur out that little bit next to the curb. Just a 2x4 and a layer of drywall there looks like it would do it. Not...

Welcome, Brent. :)

While that is a "traffic corner," I would not want any kind of corner bead there if I were going to tile to the corner or around it. The tile will more than adequately protect...

All you need is a post at each end of the beam, Kate. They can be spaced as far apart as necessary so long as the beam is of sufficient size. One post against each wall would work and there must be...

There is no good way to treat that junction between wallboard and tiling flange using a liquid-applied waterproofing membrane in my opinion. What you need there is a strip of a sheet-type membrane...

You should tell them that "repairing the problem areas" is not a suitable approach. You paid for a new shower, not one patched up with some hope of success.

We really need to know what's under...

Movement would be my primary concern as well, Adam. And I'd again refer you to post #7.

I was trying to determine the basis for Laz's favorable comment in my questions for him.

James Hardie wouldn't sanction that, either, but installing a CBU (not a Fiber/Cement board) over the plywood would suit Schluter better. But then you have the caution in the Appendix to ANSI...

The Durock Shower System foam tray would be bonded directly to the OSB subfloor, Travis. Some manufacturer's of thinset mortars don't recommend their product for bonding to OSB, so keep that in mind...

Welcome back, Nick. :)

Schluter makes no provision for installing Kerdi on a plywood substrate. While I don't think it would be much of an issue to extend your Kerdi a little past the outside of...

But we're talking about the bonding mortar behind the waterproofing membrane, Laz. What would being in or out of the "water spray" area have to do with that?

Tia, the tiles themselves may be fine for the application, it's the mesh mounting on the back of them that I believe Jerry is questioning. Some of the mounting of such mosaic tiles is terrible and...

You could install a beam a couple feet from the wall with the electrical box and support it with a couple posts, leaving unobstructed access to the electric panel.

You are miscalculating.

There are two types of deflection in consideration here. One is the design deflection of the joists. We're not talking about concern with a structural failure, we're...

Lots to deal with there, Kate.

I now see the "sister." I don't think it is a problem if it has been well fastened to the cut-off joist. All it's meant to provide is a load bearing surface where...

I think it's up to you, Adam. You're there where you can actually see and feel what you've got. We're limited to the photos, which I find frequently deceiving.

I'm a bit concerned with your use...

Thank you, Ma'am. Some of us were not aware you even recommended coloring your thinset mortar with that colorant. :)

Much as I stare at the photos, Kate, I cannot see either a short joist or a sistered joist. Perhaps others might do better.

And a photo from a little farther back showing some perspective and...

A photo or two of the that joist area would certainly help, Kate. And some knowledge of what is under that floor; basement, crawl space, finished living area, etc.
