I reckon you don't always know what's going to happen when you do only some of the work.

Seems like a waste of money, though. They could've got the same mileage out of cement board for a lot less...

What was the purpose of that step?

Also, what goes in that space between the floor and bottom of the wall board?

Depends on the tile. If it's a soft wall tile, like the 4 1/4" tiles, a standard masonry bit will go through them.

If it's more dense, like a porcelain tile, it'll take something different. I...

I couldn't find a video specifically for what you're doing, since it's an uncommon install. But this one (https://youtu.be/nwlLR1AJFvo) is pretty close. The only differences being that you're...

Not that it matters now, but I can't help wondering how it shifted so much to make the drain that far out if level, but the basin still fits.

Did the riser shift, or was the drain glued on crooked?

If it needs shimming, install the shim and mark it where it goes under the toilet. Remove the shim and cut it at the mark, then reinstall the shim so it's not visible, at least not from standing...

I don't think compression would be an issue, but safety might be. If you get them so high that they're not stable, that would be a problem. You could gauge that as you go, and depending on the...

I can't tell it from the picture, but if it bothers you, that's what matters.

The problem with removing that tile is the risk of damaging the Durock. The waterproofing can be redone, but damaging...

It's certainly your floor to do with as you wish, just realize that because tile has lasted in one room, it doesn't mean it will last in another.

Don't cut the riser any more. The coupling will fit over it, and an extra piece of pipe will make up the rest. That piece will be close to 2" long, if I'm seeing everything in your picture...

Welcome back, Joe. :)

First thing I would do is find out for sure if the subfloor is 5/8" or 3/4". While you could install tile over 5/8" ply, that's the bare minimum thickness. I wouldn't...

If you have a good slope with no dips or humps that might impede the water from draining, then you can proceed as planned.

Just make sure you get the Kerdi drain flange flush with the floor...

Clogged weep holes is certainly a possibility.

Do you know if the floor underneath the liner was sloped, or is the liner flat on the concrete/subfloor? Lack of...

It won't be a problem for setting the tile. I doubt it will cause a problem with grouting either but if you want it off the surface the best time would be after setting and before grouting.

Definitely not grout for that application.

Standards call for a flexible sealant there. The acrylic latex caulks don't usually hold up in a shower, so I don't recommend those.

I would probably hang something over the window for a couple of days after the tile are installed so they don't get too hot, if that's a possibility. You want them at room temperature for a few days...
