1. Not I. I've seen similar drains, but they were not the proper clamping drain for a shower receptor.

Welcome back, Sandra. :)

Do tell if you tiled the bathroom floor with those inadequate joists and how it's holding up.

To evaluate those tiles (I'm not familiar with the Anatolia brand) the...

Lenny, you can tile up to your door casing so long as you leave a gap of at least 1/8th" and fill that gap with a flexible sealant rather than grout.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Jane, I believe the APA would recommend a fastener schedule of 6" spacing on supported edges and 12" in the field of the panels.
