Yup. I was using a piece of BH to enlarge the sliding table of my wet saw to cut some mesh mounted glass tile, on and off over the course of 6 or so weeks (shower accent and vanity back splashes). It...

Hi Rob,

The problem you'll likely find with using shorter screws is that they won't penetrate deeply enough into the plywood to hold. The first 1/8" to 1/4" of the screws are tapered which leaves...

No, Sir, not the only one.

The liner does look pretty flat in that last photo but I'd not swear to it from here. I'd be interested to see what the transition from the bathroom floor to the shower...

Though probably more expensive a by-pass type of sliding door system would handily solve the problem, HD.

Shouldn't be an issue, Snets, IF that assemblage of 45's are installed so as not to create a second trap, and they're all installed to maintain the needed 1/4" per running foot of slope.

Linear drains can be a challenge Elle, really needs to be compatible with floor water proofing system you intend to use. Maybe I missed it above - have you decided on how you're going to do the floor?

Travis,

Even if it had not already been tiled over once, in order to make the bench waterproof at the very least some of the wall tiles would have to come off. If some of the wall tiles are...

Hi Berry,

Looks like the gap between the Hydro Ban foam board and the diverter body is too wide to use their sealer/adhesive to fill it. I'd recommend that you use a strip of Hydro Ban sheet...

Even PEX type B will flow more water than your toilet valve, vanity faucet, or shower head will likely flow, unless perhaps if they are all running simultaneously. An exception would be a tub filler.

IMO, if both are readily available then pick the one that gives you the warm and fuzzies. I've not ever used a real "high-quality" mortar, but I do know VB works just fine.

It does suck.

Definitely try to get the builder to deal with it, but I'd avoid mentioning anything about the subway tile not being to Mrs. Travis' liking. You'll basically be asking him to part...

You could set the toilet in place to see how much space you have behind the tank, but I get the dilemma.

Yep, Schluter's Kerdi band and their Kerdi Fix sealant/adhesive, or a competing product; I...

Securing those over lapping joists probably isn't a big deal, Matt, if you do indeed go with an acrylic shower pan. The reason for securing them is to prevent "scissoring".

When we see something like that we immediately start wondering how the rest of the shower was constructed and water proofed. I mean, if they built and "water proofed"...

Remember, Scott, that the thinset mortar doesn't actually "bond" to the Ditra (Heat), it is mechanically held in place by the way the columns and channels are formed.

Regular Versabond, or VB LFT will do the trick, Scott, I used regular VB to install 12X24's on toppa Ditra Heat. Worked great. I did pre-fill my Ditra Heat mat.
