No kidding.....

I think I'm going to hand frame it all with wood, lath it, and have a couple of plaster/stucco guys I know plaster it for me. If it ever comes to pass I'll post some pics.

Working on my house. Finally.

Hey folks, I obviously haven't been around in a while. I had to cut back on my computer use--it was getting way out of hand.

You aren't kidding either! The past week it's been pretty cold around here, and the weather is milder up there in Anchorage. Supposed to be 5 to 10 below again tonight. I'm getting sort of tired...

For cordless tools I've always sworn by DeWalt, Milwaukee, and Bosch. I've always though Ryobi was junk, until about 2 months ago when I was working with a carpenter on a church(we were doing trim...

I stop the backerboard just before it reaches the pan. I don't like to have it resting on top (or down the side) as it allows water to wick up from the pan into the CBU.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't, although I'm not sure if Schluter would advise using Ditra vertically. You'd still have to use Kerdi-band to waterproof the seams. If it were me, I'd just...

Chad,

Ditra is rated for installation over OSB so if you decide to use OSB you should be fine. Just be sure to use a modified mortar to set the Ditra, and a non-modified to set your tile.
