Ok, so I'm not giving this guy enough credit. He did mention waterproofing a few feet out of the shower and would ultimately pull up some of the existing tiles to red guard. Is this not acceptable? Is a surface membrane THE ONLY way?

Tiger,

How would you go about finishing where he's started?
Chipping away the lip of the concrete, laying waterproof liner, mud bed, red guard,then tile?

Also, he is removing the wonder panels to place liner behind. Not sure WHY he screwed them down, but he told me he would remove and place liner behind.

I can't really figure out a plan that would work moving forward from what you have there.

A surface-applied waterproofing over the entire shower and out into the bathroom floor is really the only way to go here.

The few that I've done like that have resulted in the mud floor being flush with the bathroom subfloor. By the time the waterproofing and shower floor tile was installed, it was flush with the bathroom floor tile. You're just at the pre-slope level and almost flush with the bathroom floor. The liner and mud on top has got to be at least 1 1/2" tall. Do you have room for that?

Ok so a quick update;

I have since fired 'the guy'... An $800 lesson learned. Fark!! 😣

A days work of demoing the slab and chipping away the lip that remained, this is what I am left with.

I have removed the paper barrier (no idea why he installed) and trashed the wonderboard.

I have taken the advice from everyone here and decided to install a linear drain at the end of the wall because visually it makes the most sense! And, as an added bonus it accommodates my large plank tile flooring. Unfortunately, I cannot get the flange close enough to the wall as I had hope because circular nature of the drain

Anyone see any problems so far?

I will be going with the Kedi waterproofing membrane as discussed. As for my walls, I haven't decided if I'm going to use regular sheetrock (schluter video said it was kosher), wonderboard, or find someone to float...

I'm only considering floating because of the potential for bowed studs and downward slope.

Thoughts?

Are you using a schluter line drain? If so you need to go ahead and ditch that clamping drain. Doing that will allow you to get closer to the wall. The drain you have is used for tradition pan liner method.

I am not using the schluter linear drain... I had already purchased this linear drain from Amazon;

Dawn LVA320304 Volga River Series Linear Shower Drain, 32-Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UXLMQQ2..._BD3tyb587H0E7

That drain will not work with your Kerdi waterproofed pan. You need a Kerdi drain in there or at least one designed for a direct surface bonded membrane. Notice in the instructions for the drain you bought that it is used with a clamping style drain which is not compatible with a direct surface bonded membrane.

Good catch gents!

Would anyone care to point me in the direction of a drain that is compatible with a surface applied membrane... Aside from the $120 price tag of the Schluter branded version, it appears the size (circumfrence) will force me to remove the drain further inward and away from the wall - which I do not want to do.

Like mentioned above you need to find a linear drain that is compatible with a surface applied waterproofing. The best thing to do is stick with schluter, but there are others out there. You should be able to get closer to the wall with the proper drain.
