Don't even consider it, Nick.

You can likely get some drywall shims at your local home center. Cardboard strips about 1 1/2" wide and usually 3 or 4-foot sections. They're about 1/16ths" thick....

Welcome, Kevin. :)

While there are thinset mortars, a lot of them actually, that are advertised as "non-sagging" and would actually work in your top down scenario, I would not recommend you try...

Don't worry about not soaking the CBU, James, just don't have it wet on the surface when you apply thinset mortar to it or vice-versa. There is a condition known technically as SSD. That's...

I would use the 3" only if they're of thicker gauge than the 2 1/2", which is sometimes the case. Doesn't hurt to use the 3" in any case, though, so long as you don't run your hand over the opposite...

Welcome, Doug. :)

Not uncommon to need to remove some casing to actually remove a pocket door if you can't adjust it enough as Chris is suggesting.

You can do it either way, Terry, just so long as you do it.

Many folks like to do it as they set the tile to prevent having to tile over a "speed bump."
