Basement Bathroom

I am in the process of finishing our basement. For most of the area we are using DriCore subfloor with carpet. What is recommended to build up the bathroom floor to the same level as the Dricore so the tile will be "flush" with the carpet? I was thinking some kind of thermal break, so it is not cold all the time. Maybe putting down rigid insulation, then 1/2 cement board dapcon'd to the slab? Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Wayne,

Cement board over a slab is not a good idea, but you might consider a foam board such as Wedi (if you can get it). You can thin set it right to the slab and then tile over it.
