Travis, thinset is a method, not a material, no matter how often you hear us use it incorrectly. You will be using the thinset or thin bed method to set all the tiles in your project and you'll do...

The minimum 1/2" plywood is mandatory. The Ditra is optional, but you must use something over the plywood. Membrane of some sort or CBU.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Jim, I think Mike is talking about installing the CBU over the tops of the screw heads he used to fasten the steel studs together, rather than the screws used to attach the CBU.

Those heads are...

Welcome, John. :)

Your first problem, if your assessment of your subfloor is accurate, is the lack of center-matched edges on those plywood panels. How did you determine that the long edges were...

Welcome, Charles. :)

The only way you're going to be able to determine that is to make up a sample board or two and try your tiles with your grout and your sealer.

My opinion; worth price charged.
