Ray, my curbless and doorless shower, but with a glass panel to contain the spay, is just over 42" wide, and the center line of the fixed shower head ended up being about 23" from the glass. Above...

Welcome, Ray,

I don't think you'll have any issues with water on the slopped floor migrating onto the flat floor.

However, if you don't have any way to contain it, I'm pretty confident in...

You're going to want plywood panels with a face grade no lower than "C", with exposure 1 rating. The sign, or the stamp on the panels will look something like B/C, Exposure 1.

If you're not keen on replacing the 5/8" plywood panels for a tighter fit, for that get in the field I would rip a piece of plywood just slightly narrower than the gap. Get some nails with a thin...

Is that a piece of Kerdi board, Doug, or a piece of drywall with Kerdi membrane stuck to it?

If KB you could notch the back so the bottom edge is 1/8" or so above the tub deck, then seal it to the...

Welcome, Denis,

Yeah, quite a dilemma. That 1/2" ply is all but useless for anything other than carpet or vinyl. If there really is no blocking from joists to joist supporting that interior wall...

Hi Ben, welcome back.

Yup, you betcha, dust is a concern, you'll want to remove all of that and it wouldn't be unreasonable to vacuum it AND clean it with a sponge and water.

If the existing...

Welcome, Lucky,

I, for one, have never seen or heard of that product. While it may work in a shower my guess is it probably wouldn't be as long lasting as a properly installed tile surround. Their...

How thick are the 2X2's and what size trowel did you use?

Nick, I'd probably tighten up that fastener spacing a bit; 8 ish inches in the field, 4 to 5 at the seams. I like to off-set the fasteners at the seams so that no two are directly across from each...

That's how I'd do it, John, start with the 64" wall. You want to avoid slivers if you can so shifting the layout to the left or right just a bit may help, no one will notice if the centerline of the...

Be mindful of your screw lengths also, Nick. With "construction" screws, even deck screws, the longer the screw is the longer the smooth portion of the shank is. For fastening those plywood strips...

Welcome Joanne,

As said, the patterns that will be available to you will largely be dictated by the tile themselves. The boxes your tiles come in might specify the offset - if one is necessary....

In my opinion, Nick, given your L after sistering I would be fine with a single layer of 3/4" ply with something like Ditra on top.

Laser levels definitely have their place, very helpful for determining...
