Is this the same project as this one (https://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=125245)?

As a temporary solution, one could wear shower shoes, or a rubber mat could be placed on the floor, with a hole cut in it for the drain.

I haven't used the Durock corners. A few times I just made my own out of pieces, with a dab of Redgard in the corner. That seems to work best with regard to the buildups.

1. A hammer drill with a tile bit works well, if you can rent one. Getting the mortar off the slab takes a little longer, but there's no easy way to do it.

It depends on what is available in your area. A lot of DIY'ers have a Home Depot close by, and can get Custom's Redgard. It's applied to the face of the CBU with a roller or brush, and negates the...

I'd check the tile size before committing to a joint width. The rule is three times whatever the largest variation in tile size is.

In other words, if the difference between the largest a d...

I think he was going for a mirror image on that lower part.

Fun house mirror, that is.

Do you see anything on the box that recommends a certain offset?

A leveling system usually helps with the bigger tiles.

Yeah, with Hardibacker, you can't bury it in the mud. So the bottom few inches is left flapping in the breeze, so to speak. I prefer one of the true cement boards for showers for that reason.

I've used the Kerdi corners and pipe seals with Durock shower membrane several times. Never had a problem with it. Like was mentioned before, there's no warranty, but I'm not worried about that.

I'm wondering if you might get a scrap piece to try out different things before you try it on the hearth.

Ok, don't put any screws or nails in the backer board lower than a line 3" above the top of the curb. The mud bed on top of the liner will help hold the bottom of the board in place.

Screws or nails.

You can do them in any order. I usually do the back wall first, then the sides, but it doesn't really matter.
