You want the second layer of subflooring to have a good high-friction contact with the first layer to provide the most rigidity. And you don't want to introduce any vertical softness in the subfloor...

Well, with the drain nearly flush with the floor, I can certainly see why they'd tell you that, Bob. And, of course, no expanded metal lath. More surprising is that they still tell you to make a...
