I'll end up starting my own thread, but I'm also looking into doing some LED strip lighting and may end up leaning on you guys to school me. Soooo many considerations!

You aren't likely to get that 10g line into a standard wall box where the floor thermostat will be located, and if I remember correctly, you won't be able to connect it to the thermostat. You...

How long is the glass panel, Nick?

The glass guys used those plastic spacers/insulators for my glass panel. But I was concerned about the panels length, and just didn't think silicone alone was a...

Scott, Tom, I'd be inclined to smooch a dab of Ferdi Fix into the tiny holes spread it out around the hole about the diameter of a nickel.

You could certainly patch them with Kerdi and mortar but...

I used a 3/8X3/8 slant notch trowel for all my 12/24's, Mike. Substrates and tile were pretty darn flat, but I did have sheet water proofing membrane build up in the corners in the shower area. The...

I still don't think All Set is going to cure appreciably faster than will Versabond.

But in any case both will have cured enough after 24 hours for light foot traffic. And your grout will need...

If the flange cannot be raised so that it sits atop the finished floor, which is preferred, natch, then there aren't many options.

If the flange rests on the finished floor it is at the correct...

Welcome, Nathan,

I also installed Ditra Heat. I used Versabond to adhere it to the subfloor, to pre-fill it, and to set my 12X24 tiles. Almost 1.5 years later no issues whatsoever.

But to...

I'd remove what's left of that wall too. Sometimes it's easier starting from scratch than it is trying to make/force something existing to work. When you rebuild that wall you can use glue and screws...

Break out the 6 foot level, Hai, and check all around for flatness, but I would expect the installed banding is going to make that assessment difficult because you now have humps where the bands are....

Nope, I used Custom's VersaBond for, well, everything except my glass accent strips, Mike. Going on 1.5 years later and no problems whatsoever.

Hi Carol,

Yes, it is common to run the tile past that seam a little (or a lot, depending on the design). Remember, though, that the cement board to drywall seam still needs to be finished using...

I installed Ditra Heat in my master bath, Mike. It's similar to regular Ditra in function. I pre-filled mine. There will be some flaking but is easily managed; just clear it away from the section...

Yes, if the tiles are flat then the 1/3" offset recommendation isn't as important. Take some samples from several boxes, lay them face to face, and see how much they rock.

Many of the lippage...

Mike,

I would definitely shoot for the cuts to be hidden by the vanity/door/toilet.

3/16th is large for my tastes, but joint width is rather dependent on the tile itself; how consistent they...

I wouldn't be surprised if that tile to tub grout cracks, John, the acrylic will expand/contract far more than, say, cast iron - or even steel. I'll be installing an acrylic tub fairly soon and will...

If the trusses are running parallel to that wall it's a pretty safe bet the wall isn't load bearing.

A 5/8" difference is quite a lot, Mike. What is the thickness of the existing subfloor?

The short of it is that you can't do any leveling between subfloor layers. You either level at the joist...

My first guess is the wall probably isn't load bearing but hard to say from here without seeing the roof structure above. Finish removing the drywall up to the ceiling, if you find...
