My vote would be the 2nd pic or the last, Kevin, but Mrs. Kevin's vote would overrule anyone elses. ;)

I'd be concerned a bit about the divots. If your 13X13's have a bit of a bow to them, and one ends up centered over one of the divots you might end up having very little mortar supporting the tile,...

It's really difficult to tell, Ol, without knowing exactly how the original shower floor was constructed, and how the new one was constructed and with what products.

That the grout did not dry out...

Scott, no need to let the mud breath after removing the plastic.

Many people like to do the wall tile before the floor tile. Mishaps happen, and it's much easier to make a repair in a mud bed than...

I think a 1/4X1/4 square notch might be a better option, especially since they are 1/2" thick.

But if you want the finished height of the mosaic to match that of the field you'll have to build up...

I'm not experienced enough to identify that particular Oatey drain, Ol, but it sure does look like the grate isn't coming out without cracking the grout holding it on.

Welcome, Ol,

The grout should definitively not still be wet after 3 weeks. My first guess is that the issue is at the drain. The use of a membrane requires that a compatible drain be used. If one...

What's the 1/4", Bill?

Aside from the difficulty of tiling over that flange, the flange is part of the water containment system. You want any water that runs down the drainage plane, in this case...

Welcome, Jeff,

While the rainfall shower head does reduce splashing somewhat, based on my own experience the 40" glass panel might, might be long enough. Remember that the head will have to extend...

If isolating the new wall(s) from the log wall(s) is the goal then screwing the 2X's to the logs won't achieve that. But if that's the way you want to go then I'd probably be inclined to just use...

IMO, Kevin, I think the 1/2" trowel will put down too much mortar. If you intend to fill the Ditra and set the tile at the same time I think you're going to have mortar squishing out everywhere if...

Welcome, Chris,

Do you plan to tile the entire wall all around the window? If so, I'd run my tile right up to all 4 edges. Then measure from the window frame to the face of the tile, then subtract...

I think you could get away with that, Charlie. If I were doing it that way I'd set only the first row on your Kerdi board ledger and let them cure over night. Then go up from there.

That's correct, Ira, you'll want to create a gap between the deck mud/tile and the wood.

I would first want to remove those bits of subfloor that protrude beyond the edges of the hardwood. An...

Welcome, Adam,

It's not only the lippage, it's also the grout joints. Neither are acceptable, especially if a "professional" was hired to do the work.

Uh huh. If the face of those brackets are flush with the front of the existing drywall the easiest remedy will be to simply add a second layer of DW on toppa the first; skin it. You'll of course need...
