Thanks, Bob! I learnt that trick from the ol' Liberry! I did the same thing on the cabinet counter top - the local marble place wanted $450 for a slab, so I made my own "slab" from $7 worth of...

I was mostly done with the tile portion by Thanksgiving, and have since been working on the cabinets in the (formerly) closet area.

Hi John! I've considered using thinset instead of SLC. It is a relatively small floor, around 4' by 7'. Would I mix the thinset a little more "soupy" to enhance spreadability? More like a...

Thanks, CX. The 1/2" plywood is a go, and I was planning to put RedGard on top of the SLC.

Moisture barrier behind untiled portion of tub surround

I'm planning to paint my Hardibacker and shampoo niche with RedGard, so I'll be skipping the moisture barrier behind the walls. I won't be tiling all the way up to the ceiling, leaving about a foot...

Hi Stephen,

You're better off if the underlayment screws do NOT hit the joists - the goal is to isolate subfloor movement from the underlayment. If I were you, I would pull up the underlayment,...

I've removed most of the T&G subfloor, and plan to replace it with 23/32" ACX, with the grain perpendicular to the joists. My closet flange is brass (I believe), sweated onto the 3" copper drain...
