I usually make the hole in the plywood about 2 1/4-2 1/2 so the nubs on the bottom of the drain will rest on the plywood. But, like Shawn said, that may vary depending on the drain he uses.

1. You can mix the thinset a little runny but not so much that it runs down in between the pebbles.

2. No, you want the thinset to be wet when you add the mud. The mud alone won't bond well, the...

I was about to say to spread the pebbles out a little so the mud will be thicker at the drain but I see now you've already mudded it. I would probably break the mud away about 1 inch from the drain...

There's usually something stamped on the plastic saying, "finish wall" or something like that. If not, look at your paper work. It's possible the finish tile surface is supposed to be flush with the...

Yeah, 1 inch -1 1/8 is fine for the pitch for a center drain, I would try to get it centered within the 4 sq walls and not worry about the angle wall at the doorway.

I'm not a Hardi guy but I think it's recommended to apply a primer coat of Redgard first. It consists of 4 parts of water to 1 part Redgard. Then apply more coats full strength Redgard. Someone...

Yep, that helps, Mark. I agree with Justin, if you can install it so the cuts don't look obvious or stand out, that's going to be the best look.

Yeah, I use my fingernail to smooth out the caulk. Turn your hand so your nail is against the caulk, then slide it up the corner.

Silicone isn't water soluble so water doesn't work with it.

When you press a sheet of tile in the thinset, it may want to slide down a little, closing up the joints. With Prolite, I usually have to place my hands flat on the tiles and try to push it back up,...

Hi Steve. When using caulk, I like using water to smooth it out. For silicone, I use Acetone.

To me, it's easier to grout first. While washing, use a tool to rake the grout out of the joints you...

Yeah, I'm a bigger Pink Floyd fan now than I was back in the day. I very seldom ever listen to anything new these days, old rock and country.

Something I hate to hear is that Roger Waters feels...

Yeah, I've seen some pretty expensive tile that turned out to be junk. The PEI 3 tells me more than anything else. I think it would be fine for a residential bath floor.

What Kevin said. Plus, do you know if thinset was used under the cement board? I've seen several floors that had too much movement because this step wasn't done.

You mentioned you didn't like the square edge of the tiles. I guess I'm misunderstanding where they are being used.

I agree with Bubba, if you're going to use a Custom thinset, I'd use white Prolite.

I think I have a pic. You can see that some of the tiles are darker than others. It takes the thinset a couple days to dry out.

Also, you have two different marble shapes, the rows will alternate on the wall.

Yep, I agree with the others. There's no repairing it. I'd tear it out or do nothing. Since they are wanting to sell the house, they'll probably find someone that will repair it. Most of the time...
