Yea the felt is up, I planned on Durarock over the felt, then RedGuard over Durarock and do I RedGard the ENTIRE Durarock wall boards or just the seems??? Is this ok? Everything I read on the forum says this is the proper way?

Otis, it'll help if you'll keep all your project questions on one thread so folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered. We can give it a more generic title any time you'd like to suggest one.

Since you have the felt behind the durarock you don't want to put any water proofing on the front of the durarock. The reasoning behind this the felt works as a waterproofing from the back while the red guard does it from the front. So when you use both you form a pocket that does not readily let any moisture out that finds it way in. Which in return create a damp environment perfect for growing a bunch odd nasty things. Where as with just one of them you leave an open surface that water vapor can get out of. So it stays dry and doesn't grow a science experiment you don't want.

First Time Tiling A Shower

Hey Guys, I just wanted to post a few pics of my new shower to my home addition. I added a master bed and bath. This is my first attempt at tiling a shower. It turned out pretty good. I custom framed it and done the work myself and I must truly say I could not have done it without the help from the pro's here on this site..... So, a big thanks to you guys.

Thanks,
Torrey
ps - I hope the attachments works.
