Boring questions but I need the help. Please.

Hi All,

I'm new here so please be gentle.

I'm re-doing my bathroom and I've got a couple of questions that I'm confused about.

1: do I need to place a vapour barrier between the wonder board and the studs behind it in the tub/shower area and if so, can I use 6mm poly instead of roofing paper?

2: I've installed 5/8" exterior grade plywood over top of the original 5/8" flooring with screws every 6”-8", creating a sub floor of 1 ¼”, is this an acceptable practice for laying 12”x12” floor tiles?

3: I plan on using green board for the ceiling of the tub area, (I plan on painting it) can you see any problem with this?

As a frequent user of woodworking forums I know what it's like to see posts like this one...........................pretty boring stuff for you guys I suspect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm new at this game.
