How about a close-up of the floor, but not as close as the one you took of the drain. What little I'm seeing looks very rough, maybe to rough to set tile over in it's current state.

The reason I'm asking is I'm wondering if the deck mud will slope directly from the cut edge of the slab and slope toward the drain, or...

I'd ask that the installers use screws throughout that wall, and no nails. Sheetrock nails can loosen over time, which would be fatal to the tile covering. Screws every 8" won't back out like nails...

Grey Poupon. :D


Laticrete Permacolor Select is pretty hard to mess up. Since it comes in 12.5 pound bags, a single installer with decent experience in grouting can use it all up before it sets...

I'm sorry, Mike. Maybe it's the late hour, or I ate too much pizza this evening. I'm just not understanding where exactly the tile is going.

To the inside of what? What did you use to adhere the tile? Is it going over a finished piece of wood?

It looks like a small amount of adhesive on the toe kick.

Your attachments aren't working, so try to upload them using the paper clip icon at the top of the reply box.

And to answer your question, I always use deck screws for framing. Framing nails work well, too.

Just don't use sheetrock screws for framing or for hanging Durock.

Best way is a 2x4 set across the opening, screwed to the sides. It looks like you still have bare lumber to screw into.

If not, a few appropriately cut 2x4's supporting the tile from the bottom...
