He's talking about the back wall of your shower. I didn't see the plastic on there because it's clear and I was looking at the pictures on my phone.

By the way, it doesn't hurt anything to do the mud before the wall board, but if you do the board first, the mud helps hold it in place at the bottom.

That means flat enough to accept the tile you have there. Doesn't have to be like glass, but you don't want big dips or humps in the wall that will cause the corners of the tile to stick up.

Other than possibly the stone, what tile are you installing on the walls and door jamb?

With a 1/4" trowel, you could expect to have about 1/16 - 1/8" of mortar when the tile is set. You can add a little more if need be to make minor adjustments, but you can't really go any lower.

If you filled and sanded it, and it still cracked later, would you reuse it in the basement?

If so, what have you got to lose?

If possible, I would cut the drain out and stub up 2" PVC for the kerdi drain. Do you know what kind of plumbing you have?

I definitely would not plan to put a sheet membrane over that floor. If you want to use the kerdi drain adapter, you could do that and build up a mud bed over what you have.

Welcome to the forum, Bishoy. :)

The drain that you'll want to use with Kerdi has to be embedded in mud at the same time the mud is placed, so you can't really do that with an old mud bed. About...

Any reason you don't want to make your bench out of lumber and sheetrock? It's not going to see any water anyway.

If moisture is migrating into the seams more than 1/4" or so, then that needs to be fixed. Otherwise, I'd leave it alone.

Have you got a picture of the corner that you think might be a problem?

Basically, any mortar that is rated for exterior use. You can find that information on the bag.

At HD, Versabond is a good product.

Any cracks or joints in the sidewalk?
