So one of the walls is pretty far out, there is about a half inch variance between the top and bottom of the shower, with the bottom being the shorter distance. Seems like the only thing I can really...

When you are working in a corner do you just drop a weighted string or something to get a straight line to start your tile at? Because if the wall isn't straight up and down and you just start a...

The good thing I have going for me on that is there is no upper limit. There is a couple feet of painted wall above the tile so no matter what the top tile can be a full tile.

Then I will plan on 1/8th. All of my tile will be on either Densshield or Kerdi board which are both dimensionally stable. So are the only expansion areas I have to worry about the 1/8th inch where...

My grout lines are 1/16th inch, do I have to leave any more room than that at plane changes like at corners and where the wall meets the floor? Or do I just do 1/16 and caulk it?

Thanks for the insight, I wasn’t sure if that trowel would be too much or not. I think I will either remove some drywall or I will tape and feather join compound down onto the Kerdi until it is...

Great idea on the ledger board. I think I will build something out of 2x4 for the “legs” and then maybe some aluminum tube to support the tile. I will put it high enough that I can still Kerdi bond...

Thanks for the info, not sure how I am going to handle it yet. Need to keep pondering it. Maybe for installing the tile I could use a 1/4 x 3/8 x 1/4 square notch trowel, that will give me a little...

I worked out how to fix the framing where the studs were spaced too far. Another issue I have with the framing is in one of the corners. The kerdi board in one direction doesn’t have stud to attach...

Here is a photo of the tub deck. Would it be best to cut the OSB where the glass goes and unscrew it and then shim it somehow to create a slope?

Thanks for the input. I should be more specific on the tub.

The whole tub deck will be tiled so I would use kerdi board under where the glass will be, and then just 1/2in Densshield for the rest...
