Nothing mysterious about their trowel, John, except possibly the price they ask for it. ;)

A 1/4" x 3/16" V-notched trowel by one company is the same as that from another.

I was weighing that option carefully, Phil, but the neighbors across the street there had just moved in and I wasn't sure I wanted that particular view of me to be their first introduction. :D

John,
1) According to Schluter: use a 1/4" x 3/16" (6 mm x 5 mm) V-notched trowel, 5/16" x 5/16" (8 mm x 8 mm) V-notched trowel, or the DITRA trowel, which features an 11/64" x 11/64" (4.5 mm x 4.5...

Oh man, Shawn, you've got your hands full.

Not sure I'd ever buy a flip. I'd guess some are done well but the majority just are not. A house across the street was recently flipped and I walked...

Original plan was to "paint" it using products sourced only from HD to keep the costs in check compared to the master bath. Everything. But that went out the window in fairly short order when I...

While horizontal blocking would be nice we're not talking about a high impact area, unless the cooks are prone to slamming a heavy food processor against the back splash.

Indeed, I would focus my...

Welcome back, Rich,

1) Yes. But Schluter wants the DH covered with Kerdi.

2) Since you have only 1 1/8" you don't have much choice if you want to stick with the curbless shower. Given the drain...

As long as the paint is well adhered and clean, Kris, scuffing it a bit is all you really need to do. Keep in mind though, that those small tiles will want to follow every rise and dip in the wall so...

Water proofing the floor, Matt, is more difficult that it might seem, since there's not an easy way to seal the toilet flange to the floor. You'd also need to be able to seal the edge of the circular...

Guest Bath Overhaul

Well, it used to be the kids bath but as they have flown the coop it sounds more aspirational to call it the guest bath. :D

Behold the grandeur. Behold the exacting level of execution - as...

I certainly think so. You'll of course have to invest in the necessary tools but even after that you'll still be dollars ahead, not to mention the pride of a job well done.

Shane, given the layout, especially the location of the shower head, IMO you do not need to slope the entire floor.

In the picture below I'd start my slope at either the red line, or maybe 6 to 12...

That's the option I'd choose, Matt, the 1 foot that doesn't get any foot traffic.

Education is expensive. Goodness knows I've spent a bundle.

Shane, offer us a quick and dirty birds eye view drawing of the shower foot print, its measurements, and note where the drain is and where the shower head(s) is.

Adding a new mud bed to an existing mud bed creates what is known as a "cold joint". Basically two separate mud beds. Bonding the edges with a thinset mortar slurry might do the trick.

Ideally you...
