That's a shame. You are probably looking at a full tearout due to no waterproofing on the walls. You'll have to weigh the cost of carefully removing/cleaning the tiles versus purchasing new tiles....

I spoke with my Wedi rep this morning. He said that many of his people apply 1/2" or 1/4" drywall to the outside wall. He recommended using a zig-zag pattern of the Wedi shmoo.

It's a wood framed floor. I have tied the end of a normally framed half wall to the joists as you suggest, or by using a threaded bolt and Simpson deck tie. I hadn't considered framing edgewise as...

The extra cutting depth to the left of the blade could come in handy. Hopefully the sliding table is a little less sloppy the the D24000 with those big tiles. That said, I'm not sure it's worth the...
