Yup. You will find that when grouting a new area into a just finished area you may need to tool it with a finger to get them to blend seamlessly.

Very nice work, Lenny, love the detail.

Top or bottom, left or right, not going to matter much with SL. The stuff is wonderfully color consistent between batches. I don't remember the "cure" time,...

There's no technical need to caulk that gap, Sam, and it's good that the plywood isn't touching the concrete.

I'd still tile to the ceiling, Gerry, but I'd be removing those sections of crown to do it.

IMO, being committed to that mosaic on a shower floor is to be committed to mold, mildew, constant thorough cleaning, and possible persistent and unpleasant stank.

But hey, that's just my...

Challenge Accepted. :D

I fell for that; "I bet you can't put a window in there". I'm still not sure who "won".

You don't need any RD in there, John, if you are going to apply RG over the EPG.

I haven't read the whole thread, did you confirm you CAN apply RG over the EPG?

Functionally it looks to me that Rubi system is basically the same as the Rigid and the Spin Doctor, and requires a special tool.

The Rigid and SD systems seem to have the advantage of easily...

That's how I'd do it, John. Remove the BN, fill with thinset mortar, let that dry completely, then roll on the primer.

Welcome, Sam,

If the tile is up to an inch away from the finished wall in some spots that pretty much locks you into using a baseboard and shoe molding combination to cover the gap. You might...

If you can raise the TH and still maintain the needed clearance to the bottom of the door that seems like the best option. Yes to the longer screws.

Yup, I'd be inclined to do texturing before any other finish surfaces go up, seems like that stuff could/would make a mess. Paint the ceiling too, if that's in your plans.

Use screws instead of nails, Carrie. Indeed, if the entire existing subfloor is nailed down take a bit of time to screw it down. Some 2" "construction" or deck screws will do the trick. Screws should...

Welcome back, Greg,

I don't think those sisters are sufficiently attached to the joists, but I doubt I'd be removing them. Instead, I'd only be driving a lot more structural screws in to lock the...

Zack,

I feel like you're at a point where you'll need to decide what water proofing method you want to employ, since that can determine your material selections.
