Will, aside from the difficulties of tying any kind of water proofing into the drain, since there is no water proofing at all in the floor (no liner, no membrane) I'm at a loss to see how you could...

Certainly could make a run to the BBS and grab an arm or two. Perhaps one will have threads that start 180* opposite of where the treads of the existing arm start.

Still, a lot of connections...

I'm not sure a bunch of TT will get you there, Greg, and the arm might still too loose when you go to tighten the head to it. An un-seen in-wall leak will be a buzz kill.

I'd probably opt to...

Not sure there are a lot of options, Joe, but I think I'd fill with modified mortar then skim it off with a blade. You'd want the mortar to fill in all the low spots around the stones then let it dry...

I think the between joists sections will be fine, Mike. I did the same thing and many of mine had about 1/16th clearance.

FYI, if you intend to install a bidet seat for that wall hung now's the time to run the electrical and plumbing. Toto has a kit for the plumbing.

Good job, Michael, all the prep work takes a looong time.

You built a bump out for the wall hung toilet, same as I did. Though much of the weight is transferred to the bottom plate there's still...

I, too, have no idea how your contractor intends to pull this off. Sloping the floor from the entrance? "Rolling" the liner over that short vertical edge? How exactly does he intent to affix the...

It wouldn't surprise me, Stewart, if the vanity top isn't dead flat, nor if the vanity cabinet itself isn't off a bit.

Go right ahead and shim it.

Yup, same page, Kent, you'll want those corner joints to be about 1/8th of an inch.

The goal is not to fill the void completely, but enough that the caulking will adhere to the edge of one tile...

Correct, Dave, the foam curb will not hold a screw so if the door you've chosen requires such a solidly mounted track then you're best off building the curb from 2X's or, perhaps better, CMU's...

I used the USG foam boards for mine too, Kent, really liked them.

For the corners; do you mean where the tile stops at a corner next to an untiled wall? For that I prefer a tight joint, 1/16th. If...

Depends on how skilled you are at troweling on a very consistent thickness of thinset mortar and skilled you are at setting each tile to the same depth in the mortar as the the adjoining tiles.

Under cutting the jambs produces a cleaner look, Pete, I'd strive to do so. Won't matter if there's no Ditra under it, IMO, it won't be walked on.
