Welcome to the forum, Jack. :)

If it's easy to get more on short notice, I'd probably get a minimum of 35 tiles, and round up to the next full box. If they're more difficult to get, I would consider getting a few more.

It's more vertical force than lateral force, so a brick wall should hold. For it to pull away from the house, the post would have to lean away from the ledger. Not impossible, but not likely, if...

Neither tile nor grout stop water. They will both absorb a small amount of water, but most of it goes right through unless gravity directs it elsewhere.

Yep, removing what is causing the bumps is really the only way to get the profile to lie flat on the wall.

You can reapply the silicone as needed, and smooth it out to avoid the same issue.

I would bet that the weight of a water heater spread out over 3-4 tiny feet will break that mortar into little pieces if it's over a wood subfloor.

I'm not finding that anywhere in their installation instructions. Just specifics about the height, which he appears to meet, and the zone, which he's in.

You definitely got it clean!

Is that a remnant at the doorway right next to the carpet, and another in front of the vanity toe kick?

P.S.- If you'll backfold the crease on the corner pieces (the ones that lies flat on the wall), you'll have an easier time getting them to flatten out when they're installed.

1. If you intend to put a piece of Kerdi band over that joint, then cut one of them shorter so they butt together. No sense in having three layers there when you don't have to.

Profile says he's from Texas, CX. Now we know why he was reluctant to answer. :D

I'd probably call the installer, just to preserve the warranty.

But otherwise I'd use tile mortar and masking tape, but not duct tape.

It's not a natural stone dish, is it? For that you would...
