Hi Byron, :)

For a narrow run like that you could use the mud as it comes from the bag. If you want to add sand add about a quarter-sack to the full sack of mud. Bond your mud to the floor the way...

Hi Greg, Welcome aboard. :)

For a sixteenth I like to use thinly cut strips of Kerdi membrane or one of the other sheet tiling membranes. All of our major sponsors make them.

Yeah, it needs varnish or some other finish. It can be matte if you don't want to see a sheen. :)

I've done quite a bit of wood staining, Michal. I always use a pre-stain sealer, available at paint stores, sometimes not at big box stores. The pre-stain wipes on right before the stain. :)

Hi Ray,

Two coats of RedGard are required. If the shower is not used daily it'll probably hold up. If it's used daily I would replace the drywall with cement board. :)

Hi Greg, :)

If the tile is in good shape just start drying the shower with a towel after each use. It'll last forever. Make sure the caulking between the tub and tile is in good shape. :)

It's my impression that the 14-foot column of water was in Germany. My first Schluter training session was in 2002. That's when I first heard about it. Dave Gobis probably knows. He was director of...

.18 gauge is actually a nail, I guess, but it doesn't leave too big of a hole, especially if you're getting a little challenged in the vision department. :)

Fred, it looks like the spots are lumpy or undulated on the surface. Is that the case? Might have been somebody tried to fill the stone on the job?

And I'm guessing the Kerdi shower floor wasn't installed level. ;)

Mud over the foam floor is not the way to go. If your setter wants to do a mud floor with Kerdi have him remove the foam.
