Haven't pulled up all the tile yet, but have a few new additions.

The floor layers appear to be as follows (top Down):

- Thin Set
- Mud Bed
- Chicken Wire
- Cork Board
- Tar Paper
- Unknown (haven't gotten to that layer yet).

Was able to see tar paper laid down inside one of the walls. Thought this would be a simple DIY project, but looks like i have to venture into the world of mud beds now...

Prior poster had mentioned that i should be concerned around building code/etc. If i keep the original height of the mud bed (1.5") -- any thoughts on how i identify the actual materials (so i maintain the original bed weight) - or would just using the lightest weight mud available (gypsum?) be my best bet? Plan to keep the cork board and everything else in place.
