Welcome, Shane.

Ceramic tile industry standards (and plumbing code) require that your site built shower receptor rise a minimum of 6 inches above the sloped floor or 3 inches above the top of your curb, whichever is higher.

It appears from your photos that you'll not be able to do even the minimum without removing more tiles and you'll not be able to provide proper waterproofing for your walls nor tie into your receptor waterproofing even at that.

The only time I'd recommend what you're attempting is if you absolutely had to be able to use the shower for a short time before finally tearing the whole thing out and replacing it completely and properly.

Harsh, perhaps, but that's the truth of the matter.

My opinion; worth price charged.
