So, here's one I did a few years back that is similar, but not as rough, as your situation:

I used self-leveler on this as it was too thin for drypack mortar. I used these Ditra scraps...

You're going to want a continuous rim blade for your grinder and make sure that you use the guard.

What the plywood helps with, in that video, is that it offers support, for one thing, but also...

There's very little wiggle room in those. You might try dry fitting it and installing the rubber seal just to see if you can get it to work before you get everything installed in there.

It's not evaporation. A pretty reliable way to tell if water got below that liner is to feel it underneath and see if there is dampness down on the underside of the liner.

If not, re-plug and try...

Either what Mike posted above or just go pick yourself up one of the "table saw" style tile saws that are available at the home improvement stores. May as well get an apron while you're at it.

Durock will have more rigidity so it will fight the dipping in and out more so than a foam board would. But both boards will conform to the framing and you don't want to rely on the board to do the...

I think a banding, like Kerdi band, is theoretically the best way to handle the tub flange. However, in addition to what Dan mentioned above, I've found the corners to be annoying with banding...

For tiles 15 and over, the standard is 1/8 inch in 10ft and not more than 1/16th in 24 inches.

I was thinking the same thing as Kurt. You have an unforgiving tile as far as lippage goes. The lippage is noticeable in the photo with the level but I don't know that it exceeds industry standards....

A 60x36 is plenty fine for a shower size. I think Wedi wants their subliner dry sheet membrane to span that seam. You can get that at Master Wholesale by the foot.

Industry standard is to have the...

For what it's worth, I would definitely recommend against real slate in your bathroom, especially in the shower. Porcelain tile is much more durable, it won't flake off, and it doesn't absorb water,...

I just looked into it and I was mistaken. I must be thinking of Ditra. It seems that Schluter doesn't reveal what the minimum tile size is for going over their Kerdi shower pans.

I live in the PNW and I would estimate that 85% of the floors that I install tile over are wood-framed structures over a crawl space. We go over 5/8 inch subfloors with tile all of the time.

So, Schluter obviously won't care for this approach but it can be done. In fact, if you used the Laticrete version of the products they would offer a warranty for it.

Personally, I think you're fine. Those tile vary with some larger than the 2x2 requirement and some probably a little under. If this is a residential shower then I don't see an issue with a few of...

First of all, congratulations on checking this and figuring out that the liner isn't installed correctly. Most of the time, this is something that is figured out after-the-fact.

The smallest grout joint is 1/16th, which I think is 2mm?, but the more you are willing to open up the grout joints the better it will go.

You can drywall whenever you want. You just need to put the foam sill seal in between the mud (if that's even the route that you are going) and whatever it comes up next to. It's the flexible gap...
