Jeff, combining several manufacturer's products can be confusing for sure. Two things come to mind in your case.

What you're suggesting might work but would be fussy and maybe fragile and maybe look like poo.

I'm a little surprised that Kohler supplies such a small diameter escutcheon but I guess it is what it is. I assume that's a diverter valve?

My first thought would be to see if they offer...

Welcome Iggy. I suppose you could say it was defective if compared to porcelain tile that mimics marble. Mother Nature has her own rules and manufacturing standards. It is what it is.

I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment of mfg's recommendation. I'd say they don't understand their own product or don't care to offer good advise.

Here's the thing, the membrane defines the drainage plane. Anything on top of it you have to assume will be water transparent and the birdbath will still exist and be a problem.

Hmmmm, that's a problem without an easy solution. Looks t be about 3/16" or 1/4" depression?

I've had BB outside and it delaminated, which I assume means it wasn't exterior glue. I don't know if any of it is. Being it's doesn't carry USA grade stamps, I don't know how to tell.

Hi Stacey. Your "is it possible" questions can only be answered with some demo. My experience is that imagined perfect scenario is rarely, if ever, a reality.

Were it me, I'd remove the apron under the sill and just run full height tiles there. It's going to be an awkward grout joint there to that rounded over apron.

Daughter had a Ford Tempo the color of that wall tile. I called it the "Flesh Tempo". Even put a sticker on the dash, which was under appreciated, I imagine.

Scott, how is the mantle supported? If I could install it first I probably would, but every install is different, so there's no real rules.
