Lou, I gotta say that being able to nearly complete a shower before even installing the drain is one of my favorite aspects of the direct bonded waterproofing membrane showers once I learned to do them.

But with traditional showers I just got used to cutting a piece of plywood the size of the floor and laying that on a folded drop cloth over the pan liner. Found that to work well enough even when I needed a ladder in there (much of the time). And I have seen at least a full handful of tile mechanics do absolutely nothing to protect the liner and build the shower walls with impunity. And never poked a hole in the liner that I was aware of. Weren't my showers, though.

Different strokes. Do what you're comfortable with so long as you build a good shower.

My opinion; worth price charged.
