Peter brings up a good point about joist orientation and the impact it could have on fixture location.

Again, IMO I feel that 33" is a bit narrow for a shower and if there's an opportunity to make...

That's the pre-formed pan meant to replace a standard tub?

I've never seen one of those but having one section flat doesn't sound right to me. Are you certain it is flat? It measures the same...

If the top layer of 3/4" subfloor is properly attached to the bottom layer then you don't really need the screws to go into the bottom layer. The 1 5/8" screws are longer than needed but will work...

Stuart,

For those 12X12's a 3/8X3/8 slant notch trowel would be great. You'll not likely find one at a BBS but you will online. You can certainly try the 1/4X3/8 first if you already have it to...

Cool wall, Chris.

No, the misting isn't to extend the workability, it's to help produce nice and clean joints. Silicone caulk is approximately zero fun to work with so all the tapping and misting...

IMO, a 6' vanity with double sinks doesn't leave a whole lotta counter top space. Also IMO, while 61" inches long is plenty for the shower, 33" wide is a bit narrow. To me the bench at the far end...

Looking forward to photos. If...

I had zero luck finding small diameter foam backer that didn't come in a 500 foot roll.
