For a large amount, it's cheaper to have sand and cement delivered in bulk and mix it yourself. You want a lean 5:1 ratio of sand:cement and enough water to make it hold together when you make a...

If you need to raise it 3/4", a bonded mud bed is probably the best and least expensive way to do that.

CBUs outside, are usually not a great idea and quite a bit more expensive. You'd still need...

The room is for the flange of the drain and to help ensure you get the proper overlap to make the seal. I think you'll find that is unfinished wall to unfinished wall, so once tile was installed, it...

Once you add in the underlayment and the thick concrete tile, it could easily be 40#sqft.

But, on the other hand...it's often cheaper to do it right the first time than to have to try to do it...

Even porcelain tile that has an absorbtion rate of less than 0.1% will still absorb moisture. Sealer for tile is generally designed to help prevent staining, giving you a chance to clean it off...

Have you considered having a tile profiled? It's not cheap if you have it done. It's possible to do it yourself, but it takes some tools and skill and a fair amount of time. Keep in mind that a...

Is is sort of a bowl like depression? Might be a good candidate for Ardex's Liquid Backerboard. The tile and thinset might work, but maybe harder to actually get it all leveled out.

FOr chance, could the water have been warm? The process of curing speeds up with heat. IF it's warm, consider cooling it off with some ice. Don't use it until the ice melts, though!

From some of the feedback I've heard (and it isn't a lot), tile 5mm has issues on a floor. 8mm, if installed properly, and it's not...

IF bullnose or a solid surface like marble don't hit your fancy, look into one of the tile profiles. More than one company makes them. Schluter, I think, has the largest selection in the industry.
