Thanks guys, as of right now, the builder said this:

"The tape is only the to hold adhesive membrane until it dries.

The slope is created by the tile not the lumber.

Builder, plumber, and inspectors all approved the installation."

Uhh... No.

I spoke with the moron at the township who is in charge of their plumbing inspections and he said "as long as they do a 15 minute leak test, it'll pass."

I spoke with the State of Michigan LARA chief of plumbing who agreed that the installation was not performed up to international plumbing code but refused to provide any further guidance as they do not trump approvals by municipality inspectors.

Looks like I'm going to have to rip out a shower as soon as this home is built or piss off my wife and put it up for sale.
