Sixto, it'll help if you keep all the project questions on one thread so's folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered. We can give it a more generic title at any time for you.

You can prime the sheetrock if you like. I personally like to get at least one coat of the finish color on all the walls right up to a little past where the tile will stop before I start tiling. just makes it easier to cut in later.

My opinion; worth price charged.

oh, i see. can I rename a thread?

anyway, i discovered a S-K rule or tip;

do not make the shower floor and curb one large piece of Kerdi.

i was so proud of myself, it's a neo-angle shower pan, and i measured and cut a single piece of Kerdi to do the pan and curb. however, that didn't work out because the curb part traps the squeeze out from the pan, and it has no place to go.

IOW, as i was pushing the bubbles toward the edge of the pan, where it meets the curb, the buildup of excess thinset built up in that corner and actually created a sort of cove where the pan meets the curb. i thought i had pulled the Kerdi too tight and pulled it out of the corner. i sliced the whole corner open with a knife and pushed with my trowel, and out came a bunch of thinset. it had built up in that lower corner. now the pan and curb meet at a nice right angle. i'll go back and use Kerdi-band to do it proper.

i guess you need to have an easy path for the excess to squeeze out, like i did at the inside wall corners. there i only overlapped the floor to the wall by 2", and didn't have the problem. i was easily able to squeeze the excess from the pan up the wall and out...

You cannot change the thread title, but any moderator will be happy to do so on your behalf if you'd just post your preference here.

Methinks we need to implement a "mandatory pichers" rule!!!

2-full pages of thread and no pichers???

(Where's my whip?)

If we can't implement spankings then at least let us have a pichers-whippin' or somethin', please?
