Ditra, is not designed for that. The Ditra won't hang on to the dry pack like lath will. A couple plastic trash bags stapled down will keep moisture away from the wood. No one knows if Ditra alone...

Hi Rene, welcome. Bricks vary in thickness depending on the brand. I cut bricks on my tile saw (10 inch blade) quite often. I believe they are about 2 1/4 thick. A thicker brick my not cut in one...

I like the 18 inch tiles on each side of the back wall. Then, I would look into using the 6 inch cut off on the side wall to allow the wave in the tile to flow thru the corner. Then you would have a...

Since his linear drain is on the left, the slight step down just inside the curb area (vertical tiles) will be larger on the left. William, is this what you're talking about?

I've never done it but it would probably be best to go over the floor tiles with cement board. But, lets get the opinion from others first. Years ago, before we knew better, we removed a lot of those...

The link I found shows the wire woven into a fiberglass mat like I talked about before. Maybe I didn't dig deep enough. Like you said, they do mention that you may need to mud the floor over the...

Si, I'm talking about in a small area. The middle of your first picture is a good example. That big tile could have been pushed over and a small tile or two added to take away the very large joints....

Hi Matt, welcome. If you plan to tile other walls and want the new tiles to tie in with the old, the first thing I would do is bring some sample tiles home to make sure they are the same size. The...

Thanks for clearing that up, I've never used Warm up. Can you use the Warm up heated floor with mosaic tiles?

What Dan said. Also, if those tiles are on a sheet or net, in places that have extra large joints, don't be afraid to cut them out and place them closer or add a few smaller tiles if you need to.

If you don't have bullnose tiles, what is your plan for the other edges in your shower?

Have you checked to see if BN tiles are available with your tiles?

Matt, Ditra heat wires are probably larger in diameter than Warm up. Of course the Ditra heat wires fit nicely in the Ditra mat which keeps the floor nice and flat without wires sticking up. Years...

I've never used Kerdiboard but can you remove tiles off of it without tearing a big hole in it?

These are 4x16 tiles and since they did have a slight bow, I went with a 1/3rd stagger. To also help, I made the joints 1/8 wide. I went over this with the homeowner ahead of time so they weren't...

I've built a speed bump in several showers across the doorway. Best I remember, the one below is 5/8-3/4. That way the door will open over a mat.

I'm with the others, I wouldn't let them caulk it. When installed, it should be set level and flat.

You might think about cutting a piece of cardboard that's just big enough to wedge in that space. Keep it within an inch or two of where you need to chisel. Then, once you're done chiseling, vacuum...

Yes, buy the right Schluter trim that fits your tile thickness.

You are right. You won't be able to get the pattern to flow from the back wall...

From my experience, I've found that it's best to buy silicone that is supposed to match the grout you're using. All whites are not the same. I've found that the GE brand is a whiter white than even...

I see no reason tape and bed mud wouldn't work. Get it as flat as you can and lightly sand it if it needs it. I'd let it set and paint a coat of Eco Prim grip on it. Custom's also has their own...

Hi Nick, welcome back. I'd go ahead and bust more concrete out along with some dirt, then post another picture. Is the drain already centered or do you need to move it?

Or, maybe your installer knows how to handle a hawk and trowel. This wall had a bow that was at least 3/4 inch before we floated it.
