Not every floor that doesn't have movement joints...

Not every floor that doesn't have movement joints has to result in tenting. A lot of times the tiles just pop loose and people can't figure out why.

Go around and tap on the tiles of the house...

I've used all of those but much more Flexcolor CQ and Fusion Pro than the straight urethane types. They don't tell you what's in the first two but it is some sort of "siliconized"...

If you're going to stick directly to glass then I would feel better with Megalite than the glass thinset. If you put the MBP primer over it then you could go with a lesser thinset mortar.

You shouldn't have any issues with Ultracolor on that tile. But when it kicks it kicks fast. Your floor is small and the tiles are big so you'll be fine.

Two hours seems like a pretty good time to...

Can you stand back and get the whole back wall in one shot? Also, you're only doing a 2-inch offset?

I think centering the back wall is probably the way to go and let the window be what it is. But...

Oscillating saw is a must-have remodeling tool. :tup2:

This is another way of doing it.

For cutting this stuff, you can use a hack saw with a miter box. Another way to go is to use a chop saw with a non-ferrous metal blade.

Personally, I like this...

You can say that again!

Best that I can think of is to adhere a 1/8 inch piece of Wedi board or Kerdi board over the acrylic and tile over that.

I'm sure better minds will come up with some...

The one piece straps (T2?) are fantastic. I like them way better than the two piece.

They stretch a little more so it feels like you're really tightening the thing up. With the 2-piece, I would...

Assuming it's a wood-framed subfloor, I think you could probably screw them together, toe-screw them into the subfloor, and screw them in at both ends.

The 1/4 inch grout joints will help your cause. It's hard to say whether or not you should use a leveling system.

FWIW, this thread would be better off as 4 separate threads.

You're supposed to have movement joints every 20-25 ft in the field. So it'd be nice to split that 30 ft dimension into two halves.

The only thing that I can think of is filling it with another product, like concrete, to within 1/2 inch, or so, and then self leveling over it. I don't know if that's more cost friendly or not
