Hi Lisa, :)

I'm not sure what the holes are for. I guess they might want shower water to seep into the tub area instead of resting on the shower side. I don't know why the wall would slope in that...

12.5 is fine, Steve. The norm is actually 12 in. from the framing, but a little extra just means there'll be a wee bit more space behind your toilet tank. :)

Dan,

You don't have to be a sissy to avoid flying in small aircraft including helicopters. I've avoided them since I returned from Viet Nam lo these long years ago. I've met Jim a number of times...

Hi Warren,

The videos were probably made before Schluter's mortar line was launched. :)

Isaac,

Jim was with Merkrete. He's bounced around a bit since I've known him, but it's not unusual in the tile industry. :)

I see your point, Sharon, but we're not suggesting its use as a grout release. We go back quite a way in the sealer business (private label, Stone Tech distributor and Aquamix advertiser (still) and...

Hi Mark, :)

When Ditra is used in a situation such as yours it goes beneath the heat directly to the slab, so there is no way it could inhibit heat. Schluter also has a product called Ditra-Heat....

Hi Paula, :)

Like Bubba, I've never encountered a frame on a glass block opening that was going to be tiled in. If it's possible I would eliminated it. Checking with a manufacturer is a good idea.

To further clarify, watering the deck mud after it has set for a day or so isn't going to hurt it. :)

Hi Bob, Bubba and Jim :)

I have a couple points more to muddy up the waters than to solve any problems. One, I have never liked the idea of putting tile over lightweight concrete, but I also know...

The guy is a great carpenter. That doesn't make him a knowledgeable tile setter. When you can't get the trowel to the wall without half your thinset running off it's just plain too loose. :)

Hi Jerry, :)

I think next time you do some testing you should use two blocks: one to be submerged and the other not. :)

After drooling over them for a number of years, I got a BBQ cooker/smoker with an offset firebox. Now I've got to find me some post oak that has been dead for a year or more. :)

Merry Christmas...

Lots of luck, Paul.
