Davy, the TDS I find online for that product doesn't even say it's a Type I or II organic adhesive nor that it meets ANSI A136.1. Dunno what might be in that bucket, but they do make a point of not...

Russel, I'm curious as to why you're doing all the difficult preparation work and paying someone else to do the easy part. Why would you not set the tiles yourself and get a really good job of it?

I agree with not making the final mud bed until most of the shower is completed, 'specially if you plan to use a ladder in there.

My opinion; worth...

David, for a non-permanent structure such as yours I'd leave it at what you've got. Will you get some frost heave-type movement? 'Bout a 100 percent chance. Will it damage the building? I...

I don't really like the excess thinset mortar in there any better than an unbonded area there, Mark. Thinset mortar is not waterproof. The Kerdi overlaps depend upon the fleece on both Kerdi...

You don't want to band those walls to the floor, Nick.

On wood framed floors it's a bit more difficult to even guess what might have been used as a tiling substrate. Unfortunately, the only real way to know is to remove a tile.

What's under the tile, Mark?

What are we looking at in the photo? I don't see a cracked tile. Is that a replacement tile sitting on the cracked tile, perhaps?

If it's outside the wet area that would be fine, James, but I've not ever used GoBoard and don't know if it's an actual 1/2" thick.

My opinion; worth price charged.
