Always best to damp cure deck mud and concrete, Peter. Your bench will probably be OK, but woulda been more OK if you'd have wrapped it in plastic after you'd finished it. Don't lose any sleep over...

I've never paid any attention to that creek when I've been in that area, Davy, so I got no eye-dee how much water is "normal" for it. I do know we're pretty dry down this way, though.

Yep, nice work.

As Davy cautioned above, mask off that wood before you begin setting your tiles. Anything containing Portland cement can stain some species of wood and you'll never get it out. ...

A. You could do that.

B. You could remove the apron entirely and simply tile below the stool when you do the rest of the splash.

Welcome, Richard. :)

What Davy said.

Do not do #4. You can waterproof the walls with RedGard if you want, but don't put it on "everything," including the floor.

And what do you intend to...

You don't wanna use any chemicals and especially not that acid. Not only because that muriatic acid is likely to be very harmful to people and pets in that house, but to the house itself. But the...

Do be careful with that muriatic acid, 'specially indoors.

Well, then, let me paraphrase the actual ANSI standard for setting over a cured mortar bed. Under normal conditions a 20 hour cure is the minimum, but longer cures up to 10 days are desirable.

Wish I were exaggerating about the time we got 30 inches in 24 hours. Or was it 24 inches in 30 hours? Now I'm not sure, but I guarantee I knew at the time. :)
