After sloppy work like that, I'm not sure I'd give him the address to the new house. Maybe he got super creative and used plumbers putty.

I’d block it. I have 24” 2x6 exterior walls and wouldn’t want to do that without blocking. Even at 16” centers I’d probably do it.

I can’t imagine starting the slope anywhere other than where you were planning.

Anything else would be a trip hazard and/or eye sore. You will have water everywhere though and maybe a bath mat...

The recommendation will be to either have a vapor barrier behind the board, a surface membrane on the board or a liquid membrane.

You can lay them out on the ground too.

Tile layout seems to be just a set of compromises as almost nothing ever works out perfectly. You basically have to pick your poison and figure out what’s...

Post a picture.

I’d rather have a partial piece at the top under a cabinet because you’ll never see it.

I left 4” to the cabinet and 3.5” to the top. Looks fine to me. Any less would look weird. Any less might look kinda weird. Mind you, mine is floating. Not sure why the 2nd pic is rotated.

More shower heads is my vote, unless the shower is tiny but even then you can add a rain shower head to have a different type of experience.

Get a replacement escutcheon and see how well you can cut/grind. With the proper tools and patience you should be able to make it look professional. If that doesn’t work then proceed to modifying the...

Would be surprised if it was all drywall. At least on mine, there’s an area that’s like crushed ceramic or something. Expensive to replace. If that fireplace was original to the house and built to...

I put weighted 2x4s down on the edges because it seems like the ditra wants to curl up at the edges. I guess that wouldn’t be the case if you were filling the waffles at the sameness time.

1/2 tile won’t be a problem but I’d make sure not to have a sliver of it can be helped. Those are pretty large tiles so they won’t move around unlike mosaic when cutting.

I actually have the daltile fabrique in the master bathroom installed by the builder. They did a 50% stagger and the lippage isn’t bad at all (surprisingly)

What kind of contractor was this? They've tiled before? It would really make me question how they did the rest of work.

Any chance they can use some kind of oscillating tool to cut a tiny groove...

There is no exposed till edge with a schluter linear drain. There is while installing but there is a frame that installs partially into the channel body and butts up against the edge of the tile.

Just a response to the post the says schluter doesn’t have a tile edge. It most certainly does.

I don’t understand how this is supposed to work or how a linear drain works with weep holes.

For clarity. Ditra is allowed over plywood, right? So you’re saying that kerdi over Ditra isn’t something that’s approved/recommended?
