Same would be true with the Durock foam trays, Eric. Not sure just how they get code approval on that. Perhaps you know?

See Dayv's post #18, SusanMary. I think you'll find a full inch is pretty thick for your fat mud on the curb face unless you do it in two lifts.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome, Mike. :)

Mud's clearly the way to go on those walls you have.

I know at least one CBU manufacturer usta say that, but I don't even recall which brand that was. You can certainly do yours that way, but the thinset mortar will adhere quite well to either face of...

Some misunderstanding there, SusanMary. Your pan liner material will be at least 40 mils thick, not 4, and yes, the liner itself can bow the wallboard a bit, but you're correct that the corner folds...

Appears he's long past the point of installing a traditional receptor. I'd start with Kevin's plan to ask him just how he plans to make you a waterproof shower, Matt.

You need to attach those photos from storage on your computer using the paper-clip icon above the Reply dialog box so they appear in your post and remain a permanent part of your thread, Matt.

Mmmmm. Forest Green stone tile may be a problem, but Rainforest Green is OK?

I, for one, have zero experience with that specific tile, Zane.
