Hi Jesse,

Tear it out. Redo it as a roman tub or put a floor in and make a conventional shower out of it. Don't mess with inserts.

Hi Zack, :)

Looks to me like you are installing sheets that might be a bit big for your experience level. You can install half pieces and overlap them two inches. That will give you a lot more...

Hi Jo, :)

I don't think you have anything to worry about. It's not a wet area per se. It'll be fine. :)

Hi Kay, and welcome to the forum. :)

The man seems to have a complete disdain for pro tile setters, which, I think, is the wrong way to go. We here, on the other hand, have always relied on pros to help our DIYers. Makes for a much...

Hi Cheri, :)

My biggest concern is arranging it so you won't have bath water all over the bathroom. I doesn't look like you have enough space for a walk-in/no door shower. :)

I could do it in a day if I didn't have to remove the plumbing trim. I didn't watch any further, but it appears he's going to tile around the trim. :)

I flew my US Army flag under the Stars and Stripes yesterday. I haven't lost anyone in any of the wars, thankfully. I commiserate with those who have.

Hi Rachel, :)

The floor looks good from here. Yes, you can use stiff thinset in the voids. The thinset police won't like it, but it'll work. Check for loose mortar throughout the floor. :)

I'm still an RVer, and I use silicone on the sides of the trailer, but never on the roof. Seems to hold up fairly well. That's the way they come from the factory. :)

You started way earlier than I did, Davy. I'm 78, and my oldest grandson did the prom just a couple years ago. The next oldest is 8, and the rest of them are still rug rats. You must be around 75? :D
