So long as you're prepared to extend your door jambs to accommodate the thicker wallboard, I see no issue in padding out that wall.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome, Russ. :)

How is the bench constructed?

What method of waterproofing are you using in the shower?

Is this the same shower with the "shower tower" in it?

Depends upon just what you have there, Thomas. Is it a door with a trimmed opening, a cased opening, a doorway wrapped in drywall, other?

Martin, there is still nothing out there that is as good as a properly sloped shower floor made with deck mud to perfectly fit your shower footprint and drain location.

It's also the least...

Looks closer to fat mud to my eye, Frank, and I don't see any metal lath under it, but appears to be in good condition. Given what I see there, I'd be inclined to recommend you simply grind the...

Haven't ever used a cup wheel of that design, Frank. Not sure I've ever seen one. The single-row models usually have those pads lined up end to end and they tend to dig in more than those with two...

While I'd rather see a grade stamp, the description of that plywood appears to make it an exterior glue product and sanded, which generally means C or better faces. That would make it suitable for...

Does your cup wheel have a single or double row of diamond pads, Frank?

For the placement of deck mud, the minor gouges in the concrete surface will not be harmful and could be considered a useful...

Welcome, Mark. :)

Is this a wet or a dry area of the bathroom?

I trust the primer is on the overlay side of the plywood?

Welcome, Rich. :)

I'm gonna assume that by mortar you mean a deck mud (aka dry-pack) or fat mud (aka wall mud) or similar and by thinset (a method of tile installation) you mean Portland...

What Ali said. Kerdi Band is easy to work with, just not as easy as Durock membrane.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Can't tell for sure what you've got in there for water, AC, but I'd want it at least above those 2" folds up the side walls.

And I recommend you put some sort of straight sided vessel next to the...

I disagree, Kevin. Not much in the world of construction simpler than mixing some sand and some Portland cement. Five scoops of this, one scoop of that. Mix. And there's nothing that makes better...

That's not the only way, Thomas, but it's an acceptable way so long as your moisture barrier laps over the drain side of the tub's tiling flange. And the bigger limitation is the difficulty in using...

1. The perimeter gap should be 1/4-inch. The gap between sheets should be as required by the manufacturer, but 1/8th-inch is usually good. You do not need T&G material for that layer. I'd still...

You could pre-fill that with something like water putty if you want, Mike, but I'd be inclined to let it fill itself with thinset mortar when I installed my Ditra.

My opinion; worth price charged.
