I don't think it'll be necessary, Nick, the patch will create a hump which your hex's will tend to follow. Just be sure the sealant extends outward from the incision by about an inch in all...

Welcome back, Bruce,

Sounds like my pony wall; tile one side, drywall the other, glass panel on top (but no in a channel).

You didn't mention anything about how you intend to water proof that...

Plywood doesn't like moisture all that much, Jerry, most particle board likes it even less. That stuff needs to be replaced as it has likely already started to swell from the moisture. It has been...

I have, and used, that same 3/8" SNT, Bruce, but I never looked for a larger one. I think it should work if the walls, and tiles, are flat enough.

If you have sufficient mortar coverage it will be...

Given those 2" hex's I'd want to fix that bubble, Nick.

Not sure how successful you'll be trying to inject thinset mortar into it, but you should be able to slice it, lift both sides a little and...

I certainly wouldn't be able to get through an entire 50 pound bag, but I'm relatively inexperienced and work really, painfully, slow. As well, I don't have a stout enough drill to mix a 50 pound...

IMO, Bruce, trowel notch size still depends on how flat the walls and tiles are. If both are dead flat you need about 3/16" of compressed mortar under them to ensure full coverage, so roughly a 3/8"...

I had the same issue finding Kerdi Board, Jon, and wanting to use 4X8 sheets (to reduce the number of seams) didn't help.

I ended up finding a competing product locally; Laticrete Hydro Ban foam...

Perhaps the invoice from the builder might offer some clues as to what materials were used and, therefore, what water proofing method was employed. Well, kind of employed.

And, is there anything between the wood and the concrete to prevent moisture from the concrete from migrating into the wood? Or, is the wood pressure treated?

Have to agree with Laz, Dani. Appears the installer probably spread out more mortar than he could cover with tile before the mortar skinned over. Could also be that the backs of the tile were dirty...

I think you are, Bruce.

Given the circumstances I'd want to clean it several times with something that cuts through grease and oil, like 409, Fantastic, Dawn, etc, and let the wall dry out for...

Lisa Marie,

The second layer of plywood is also considered subflooring, just a second layer of subflooring. The long edge of the plywood should run perpendicular to the joists and yes, the 45*...

Lisa Marie,

No idea what "sever weather" plywood is but I suspect it has some kind of coating on it to help it withstand exposure to the elements during construction. While it might work for what...

If the only problem created by shifting it towards the door is more cuts I'd be inclined to do just that.

But that's easy for me to say, right? ;)

My thought too. You might spend more time and energy obtaining a suitable tiling surface on that wall than you would just replacing it.

Welcome, Rick,

While layouts aren't my strong suit I don't see a lot of options. Increasing the joint width to 1/4" likely still won't get you close enough. Shifting the whole thing towards the...

#2; Usually about 3", Cris, enough to protect the curb-to-wall inside corners. Any more than that is a design choice.
