I ripped up a 2x3 section of ditra and spent half the day grinding back to the subfloor. Found a 60 grit flapdisc and angle grinder to work best but incredibly dusty. New ditra is down and floor is...

I've lowered the subfloor to the top of the joists under the shower and fixed the duct work.

Marble or not, I'm leaning toward dropping the subfloor in the shower for a curbless install. What do you normally use for cutting out the subfloor flush to the studs? I've cut some of this subfloor...

The subfloor is 90's era 13/16 OSB tongue and groove with a subfloor glue applied between the subfloor and the joists.

I've never really understood the deflection requirement. Doesn't a floor move...

I have spent most of the weekend at the tile stores. We love marble but know it is hard to maintain. Would I be crazy to use 4x12 marble for the bathroom floor on 7/8 subfloor + ditra? This rarely...

I have seen some videos where the pan was installed over the top of the joists and I think that would be fine, or a 1/4 plywood or hardie to give a uniform surface. As Rich said, schluter even shows...
