Perhaps the invoice from the builder might offer some clues as to what materials were used and, therefore, what water proofing method was employed. Well, kind of employed.

Not to be alarmist, be...

And, is there anything between the wood and the concrete to prevent moisture from the concrete from migrating into the wood? Or, is the wood pressure treated?

Have to agree with Laz, Dani. Appears the installer probably spread out more mortar than he could cover with tile before the mortar skinned over. Could also be that the backs of the tile were dirty...

I think you are, Bruce.

Given the circumstances I'd want to clean it several times with something that cuts through grease and oil, like 409, Fantastic, Dawn, etc, and let the wall dry out for...

Lisa Marie,

The second layer of plywood is also considered subflooring, just a second layer of subflooring. The long edge of the plywood should run perpendicular to the joists and yes, the 45*...

Lisa Marie,

No idea what "sever weather" plywood is but I suspect it has some kind of coating on it to help it withstand exposure to the elements during construction. While it might work for what...

If the only problem created by shifting it towards the door is more cuts I'd be inclined to do just that.

My thought too. You might spend more time and energy obtaining a suitable tiling surface on that wall than you would just replacing it.

Welcome, Rick,

While layouts aren't my strong suit I don't see a lot of options. Increasing the joint width to 1/4" likely still won't get you close enough. Shifting the whole thing towards the...

No experience with the products you mention, Justin, but I do believe Laticrete says you can install their foam panels on concrete with mortar. Those would provide a thermal break. Still, between the...

#2; Usually about 3", Cris, enough to protect the curb-to-wall inside corners. Any more than that is a design choice.

IMO, Jeff, simply using silicone caulk at the tile to pan joint will be fine, and allow that joint to be exposed to air which will allow it to dry faster and thus help slow the growth of mold/mildew....

Welcome back, Jeff,

Filling that gap with mortar isn't likely to work as it won't adhere to the plastic flange. You could, instead, end the Kerdi board at the top of the flange and then use Kerdi...

Michael,

You are not going to get anything resembling a straight cut on those porcelain tile using a nipper.

You will need a wet saw, with a diamond blade. Depending on the size of the tiles...
