Karl, we're just trying to give you the best information we can. There's not much use in sending you forward on your project if the foundation is questionable. You can certainly tile over what you want since it's your house. No tile police will be coming over to arrest you if the job isn't up to snuff.

1. Use the spacing recommended by the plywood manufacturer. Typically that is 1/4" around the perimeter and 1/8" between the sheets, but check their literature.

2. You'll be doing that at either the self-leveling stage, or the Ditra stage.

3. If the finished floor will be higher than the current threshold, either replace it or set it on top of the new floor. Otherwise you can tile up to it, possibly, depending on the shape of it.

What is the thickness of the planks?
