Don't worry about not soaking the CBU, James, just don't have it wet on the surface when you apply thinset mortar to it or vice-versa. There is a condition known technically as SSD. That's...

Can't tell, James, really difficult to see the bottom of your Hardiebacker panels from down here, eh?

I would recommend dampening the face of your Hardiebacker before applying thinset for any type...

I would use the 3" only if they're of thicker gauge than the 2 1/2", which is sometimes the case. Doesn't hurt to use the 3" in any case, though, so long as you don't run your hand over the opposite...

Never seen a tilt-to-remove track. Most I've dealt with have a latch, usually plastic, on each trolley that hooks over a mushroom-type pin on the top of the door at each end of the door top. ...

So long as the support is adequate, it matters not whether the subfloor seam is under the toilet.

You do understand that you want to set the toilet drain flange on top of the finished flooring,...

Welcome, Doug. :)

Not uncommon to need to remove some casing to actually remove a pocket door if you can't adjust it enough as Chris is suggesting.

You can do it either way, Terry, just so long as you do it.

Welcome, RF. :)

I don't think it's a great...
