The "small detail questions" are much better asked before the work begins rather than after you've discovered small detail problems.

The top of your rough curb should be sloped to drain before covered with the PVC liner. The liner must not have any mechanical fasteners below a height of a couple inches above the top of the rough curb except for the outside face of the curb if necessary. The curb must be finished by installing expanded metal lath and fat-mud (see Shower Construction section in our Liberry) and you do not want to apply any waterproofing membrane over that mud, nor onto the final mud bed of the shower floor.

I would strongly recommend you not use those plastic sticks in your top mud bed. First, the top mud bed is to be of a consistent of at least 1 1/2" and follow the slope of your pre-sloped liner. Second, your top mud be really doesn't want any plastic dividers to tell the mud and tile surface where to crack.

My opinion; worth price charged.
