Worth price charged is my disclaimer, Brendan. Nothing to do with your DIY capabilities. :)

You could do something like that with the pipes if you can find some just the right size, I suppose. ...

Me, too, Hai. But I have the advantage of knowing how those wood floors over concrete slabs are commonly done. :)

Nothing wrong with that thinset mortar, Morgan, but the bag says it's white and the mortar in your floor picture is gray. You sure that's what's being used?

Just as you mentioned "Hardie backer"...

Welcome, Jack. :)

I'm not familiar with that brand, but we've heard the same sort of complaint from folks using SLCs of many well known brands over the years. Changing brands is not likely to...

Welcome back, Brendan. :)

If you're gonna use deck mud (good eye-dee) why bother with the 2x4s and CBU? Why not just place your mortar, bonded to the concrete, to the exact height necessary to...

Welcome, Adam. :)

I'd take just about the opposite view on the subfloor requirements for that installation. While I agree that the difference between 2" ceramic and 2" natural stone tiles is...

I'll add to Jim's "more worried" list, the likelihood that with all the other slights, he likely didn't bed the CBU in thinset mortar as required by the product manufacturer. A very high-risk...

Understand. Likely written by an advertisement department guy who may not have been around even as long as the new types of grout. :D

My opinion; worth price charged.
