Looks good, Steve, the black is cool.

Mine is mounted using just the plastic anchors into the tile, and appears to be very solid. I have WP foam board behind the tile so toggles wouldn't have done...

Because the manufacturer does not state that installing Hardie directly over planks is an acceptable method, it suggests it wouldn't. That your previous tile installation survived with just such an...

Some sanded grouts use sand that is sharper than others. Some of the pros here can tell you which grouts are less likely to scratch a tile but, because there are so many different tiles, the only...

Steve, unless those screws end up being driven into a stud or other solid blocking behind the foam board the only things that are going to be holding them in are the plastic anchors in the tile.

The sistered joists should be fine, Chris, the sawn board subfloor - not so much. The expansion and contraction rates of sawn lumber are far more than plywood, just too unstable. My guess is that...

I think I'm still missing something. I understand you have the planks, but thought I also understood that you've covered those planks with 1/2" plywood. Maybe I missed it from a previous post.

You can tile out onto the drywall as far as you like, Pancho, using your thinset mortar as the adhesive. Same with installing the Schluter profile. If the DW has been painted you might consider...

It does go bad, Adam, and tiling with it goes really, really bad.

Page,

No, the extra studs to pick up the ends of the CBU are not overkill. At all. You want the seem where the CBU meets the drywall to be solid.

If you are not going to shim the CBU out so it...

I see the issue now Vignesh. Even without the Ditra (is that what that stuff is?) it appears your subfloor is a bit above the shower pan in some spots.

I think the only way you'll be able to...

Green board is unnecessary, and its coating might actually reduce the mortar bond.

If I had some CBU on hand I'd use it for the curb before covering with Kerdi, but plain old DW will work too. The...

George,

No, the mortar shouldn't feel sandy, unless you rub it between your fingers. And it shouldn't skin over in the pot after just a handful of minutes.

Get some fresh thinset mortar. Use...

Welcome, Prashanth,
