Welcome to the forum, Scott. :)

I wouldn't try to rip out part of it, that probably wouldn't turn out well.

The fact that you pre-filled will speed up the dry time vs. filling and setting up the same day.

But you'll need to key the wet mortar into the dried layer of mortar on the mat, just as if it...

Do you know anyone in the area that you could pay to go there and take pictures and send them to you?

I have to be honest, I couldn't buy a home under those circumstances. There are hundreds of...

George, you're going to find it difficult to make a PVC liner fit to a curved curb. It's going to have to be cut every few inches to keep it from wrinkling up.

Maybe you can talk to your friend...

I've always had everything natural gas as much as possible. Stove, heater, water heater, fireplace, and even dryer. I figured when the power goes out, I've still got hot water and fireplace.

I'm not a big fan of the fernco connections, but if you set the connection in gravel to minimize the movement, I imagine it'll work.

So the Kerdi drain takes a 4 1/2" hole in the concrete to set. ...

What was the penny tile set with? Maybe, if you're lucky, it adhered as good as the grout. :D

There's really no way to tell until you start taking it up.

How big is the floor space?

If you find the drain to be cast iron, that's a very good reason to replace the riser and trap. It'll take some demolition of the slab around the drain, big enough to dig down and expose the trap to...

Redgard is fine for that application, when properly applied. No need for any mesh on that crack, though.

It's probably about 20 years old, best I can remember.

But if they wanted it to be less-than-perfect, they could have just looked at the grout cracking in the corners. :)
