Well, in your link they indicate under warpage that they pass ASTM C485 at less than 0.75%, but fail to note that the ANSI requirement is also limited to 0.09 inches (2.3mm). The .75% would allow...

Do those tiles claim to meet the standards of ANSI A137.1, Dan?

How much warpage do you actually measure as measured from a flat surface?

What layout pattern do you intend to use?

KISS, indeed. Nearly always a good eye-dee.

Genius is not exactly what I'm called most of the time, hereabouts, Dan. :D

If you're talking about between the black thingees and the back of the CBU, zero would be adequate, 1/8th" more than enough.

Furring out the concrete block wall 3" would seem to be easiest by...

Without seeing the orientation and relationships of the materials, I'd guess that to be a yes, but that is a guess.

Dan, there's too much to consider that's just not available to those of us out here. You need a structure that meets the minimum deflection standards with a joist spacing no greater than 24" on...

Those would be joists, rather than trusses, Dan. Not at all sure why there are so many if all they'll do is support additional joists in the opposite direction, but it certainly won't hurt.

The second layer of structural subflooring is a tile underlayment only if you plan to bond your tiles directly to it, which I would not recommend.

You would want a perimeter gap on both layers as...

Dan, nobody here is gonna wanna tell you what you're doing is acceptable without really knowing what you're doing.

I'm looking as closely as I can and still can't find anywhere that a 2x4 is spanning only 4 feet. Only interior 2x4 I see appears to be spanning 9 feet. That's not gonna work.

Still confused. I see 2x4s spanning about 9 feet. If there is nothing supporting that 2x4 on the flat, what is supporting the other 2x4s? The ones spaced at more than 24" centers?

So, photo #3 was put there only to confuse us? If so, I assure you it was not necessary. I was already confused. :D

Try as I might, I cannot see where you plan to put this 4' 2x4 and for what purpose, Dan.

And for purposes of clarity, where you have two layers of 3/4" plywood, the top layer is a second layer...

3. I agree with Dan that the Ramset won't hurt the fittings, but using a Ramset on hollow CMUs can be quite frustrating and is more likely to damage the blocks than the pipe fittings. Shoot all the...

How do you intend to fasten the CBU to the inside of your shower curb without penetrating your receptor liner, Dan?

I would recommend you use KDAT, Dan, if you can find it. That's Kiln Dried After Treatment. Gives you the moisture protection without the serious shrinkage and warpage of regular treated wood.

1. If it needs patched, you could do that. I'd likely stuff some metal lath or poultry netting in the hole and patch with fat mud.

I would suspect there is "mechanical" of some sort under there, Dan. Water, drain, electric, HVAC, whatever. But onliest way to know is to remove some subflooring.
