That is quite the conundrum. :scratch:

Is this just a GFCI, or a GFCI/Arc fault combo?

I can't see the entire top of the curb, but from the one picture, I see only one nail/screw near the end. I would have them at least every foot, if not closer. I would also screw the top one at an...

Is the single wheel on the front? That one took a pretty good hit.

Looks like you furrowed in for a short distance as well.

I hope that's Kerabond T you bought. If it is, you did good.

If it's really Keeshond, I don't know what to tell you. :)

John, we can always get one sent to you if you can't get it through the online store. I'll send a message to Dave and he'll contact you.

Thanks for your patience. :)

There's no rule or best practice about that. I would do at least 2-3", but you can do as much as you want.

In his last paragraph, he said he was going with Kerdiboard and a foam tray.

Certainly nothing wrong with a tray, but a properly installed mud floor works even better, and is a fraction of the...

Comparatively speaking, you're lucky. We've seen a lot worse on here.

I've knocked down several that were in use far less time than yours, and suffered much more damage.

Glad you found us. ...

More than likely they've done the curb the same way with cement board and nails, puncturing the liner every few inches.

Keep tearing out until you don't see any signs of mold, water damage, or bad...

I was going to mention this. The laser will simply set a level line for you to work from. Where that line is set on the wall depends completely on you.

Hard to say what he will come up with. Possibly something that will ease your fears so that he'll get paid.

Maybe he'll go along with what you want and will fix everything.

I'll do a 3/4" thick mud bed over concrete, but I've always set it at 1 1/4" at the drain when going over a framed subfloor.

Welcome back, Spencer. :)

If memory serves correctly, the mud bed over a subfloor like yours should be a minimum of 1 1/4" thick. So you would need to lower the subfloor more to get the...

What we're seeing in that last picture where the tile is removed, is that before or after you cleaned the mortar off the membrane?

I would often set a full tile where it's in plain sight, ending with a smaller piece at the opposite wall when it's covered or mostly hidden. I don't think that's an issue at all.
