2. Yes.

3. No.

As a practical matter, Jim, I say that's just not gonna work in this application. Mixed with Acryl 60 in lieu of water it might, but even that's questionable at 1 1/4" on a step.

3. What bonding mortar...

If the tiles are installed horizontally and not offset, that difference is only 6 percent. With a 50 percent offset it will be 12 percent on the half cuts and be much more noticeable, but the...

Welcome back, Terry. :)

Not much useful information on that site you linked. I'd hafta agree with Paul that you'll need to contact the manufacturer to get any specific information.

Gordon, do we understand that you're paying someone to build this shower?

If so, that someone should have corrected the framing before he installed the wallboard. A bit silly of him now to tell...

I'm confused as to why you'd wanna do that.

Also does not appear to be a plywood edge I see under the Lauan in the photo, Shawn, or is it just me?

Are we sure about the composition of that subfloor, Duke?
