Hi Greg,

If I were doing this I'd remove the wood on face of he block around the window opening and reinstall so that the edge is even with the edge of the block.

No reason I can see that you...

If you were to remove 3" from each of those ledgers, Dan, there won't be anything supporting that corner of the subfloor.

Re the bench; if the drain extends all the way to the side of the bench...

Probably depends on your experience, Steve. Having no experience floating a floor of any size I'd reach for all the aid I could.

Welcome, Bob,

2X2 construction? Actual 2X2's? They are notoriously not straight. Or flat, or anything else one would want them to be to create flat walls.

I don't think I could tile that wall...

Welcome, Pete,

That plan should work, hopefully the already installed CBU on the face of the 2X4 won't crumble when you drive the 3 or 3.5" construction screws into it. You might pre drill the...

I think a small corner bench would work well in that shower, Mike. I used a "Better Bench" in my master shower, which is about the same width as what you're planning.

The P trap should be at the bottom of that riser, Dan, but which way it turns to connect to a horizontal drain line is still a mystery at this point. Start digging. ;)

BTW, be sure your slab isn't...

As mentioned in another member's thread the tub flange of the apron-less Kohler acrylic tub I'm using is nearly 1/2" thick. I'm using Laticrete Hydro Ban foam board for the tub surround, and in order...

You're probably right, Phil, though it says it's water proof it is still pretty narrow.

Welcome, Dan,

Looks to me like you'll need to rent a hack hammer and bust out some concrete in order to extend that drain by 2'.

There is a P trap down there somewhere at the end of that riser...

That tile tape is interesting, Phil, haven't seen that before. Looks like it is a viable alterative to the usual manufacturers 5" band material.

I dunno, Phil, after reading of your tub install challenges I still think mine was somewhat easier. And it certainly would have been if I simply followed Kohler's "directions". But nooooo, I couldn't...

Needless to say, Mark, whenever you can use a full sheet that would be ideal, but sometimes it's just not gonna happen. If I were using only the 3/4" layer I'd want to strive for full sheets but,...

Wow, turned out great, Scott. I was a little skeptical of the floor tile but it really works in that install.

Nice job!

You do have it right, Steve. Screw down all those planks first though, not just the patches. If you have any planks that have their ends meet over a joist you might consider pre-drilling and even...

Welcome back, Pete,

Lots of leveling (lippage control, actually) to choose from, and all have their pros and cons. A search in the forum will turn up half a dozen at least.

Tom,

I decided to fur out the studs to deal with the thick flange. The end wall of the alcove, opposite the plumbing wall, is actually 8' long so I furred the entire wall so the dry wall would be...

As for the shower valve you might consider Grohe, They have a particular 2 or 3 outlet unit that combines temp, volume, and outlet selection all in one. No separate valves and...

FWIW, Dan, I grouted my entire niche, and have read many others did too. While there are technically changes of plane they are all within the same wall assembly.
