Gotta be happy with that, Greg, looks very nice. And I like the idea of using the asymmetrical vanity, allows for some much needed and very usable drawers.

It does look like the bottom row would have to come out Greg. And since the floor tile is set on Kerdi, the Kerdi is likely to be damaged when the tile is removed. Removing the Kerdi from the drain...

I would lay the mud bed, give it a day to dry, install the Kerdi on the floor and give it a day to dry, then install the band and set the floor tile. Install the bottom row of wall tile last.

I would probably try a nail set (punch) first, Greg.

Kerdi Fix any damage, but I probably wouldn't sweat it too much, those are pretty high on the wall and won't be seeing much water. I'd opt for...

I agree, no options. Git 'em out right away. Be sure to suit up before you do.

Making progress, Greg!

An observation, if I may; the cut out for the shower valve looks a bit large at the top. Have you verified that the trim plate will cover it? Does the trim plate have a...

Given the proximity of that bench to the shower head, Greg, it's going to see a lot of water. A lot. IMO, you really want it sloped.

Ideally, you'd use a single piece of Kerdi to cover the top mud...

Like you, I installed mine against foam board. You can't really "tighten" the mounting screws because the foam compresses so the frame has some wiggle in it, at least mine did. Because of the...

Greg, you gunna cover the bench mud with Kerdi, and Kerdi band it to the walls?

Certainly could make a run to the BBS and grab an arm or two. Perhaps one will have threads that start 180* opposite of where the treads of the existing arm start.

Still, a lot of connections...

I'm not sure a bunch of TT will get you there, Greg, and the arm might still too loose when you go to tighten the head to it. An un-seen in-wall leak will be a buzz kill.

I'd probably opt to...

Has been a while since I installed a shower valve, Greg. Are you certain the instructions say the plaster guard needs to be X from the studs, and not X from the finished wall? Regardless, nothing...

For a fixed or rod mounted hand held shower head I would likely center it on the C/L of the drain - assuming the drain is also centered. If the drain isn't centered then I'd resort to centering the...

You gunna eliminate that wall bump out, Greg? It likely only exists to accommodate the standard size tub.

Glutton for punishment, Greg? lol. I'm about to embark on a very similar project, and also have to find a tub.
