We still working on that 2010 bathroom remodel, Doug? :)

Not for me. The Ditra is already waterproof, Alex. What you're trying to waterproof is the gap between the Ditra and the tub face. Putting KerdiBand over the Ditra won't help. You need to fold...

I would use nothing thinner than nominal 1/2" plywood in your application. While the nominal 3/8ths" might be technically suitable, most of the plywood that thin you'll find is not sufficiently flat...

Welcome back, Cindy. :)

What's a splash pad?

What type of tile are you dealing with?

I'd slide it over such that there is a gap on both sides and enough overlap on the joist on each side for fastening. If you can't get that, you can certainly rip more plywood to make a better fit,...

Welcome back, Brad. :)

I suggest your make up a test board with your tiles and try the Flexcolor CQ grout. When I tested it after it first came out, I did not find it very abrasive at all. YMMV.
