A Good Article on Tiling Over Plywood Subfloors

Yes, we know most of this, but it does combine most, if not all of the issues involved in one article.

Of course, Ditra and Greenskin can be added here....

Little different from what schluter calls for. Starting at the quarter point in this article.

Well written article but a touch over kill.

Didn't read the article, but MB may be talking about the long edge offsets, not the ends. If so, I'd agree with that.

Yea he is definitely overkill and you probably won't catch me tooling fresh grout with the butt ends of drill bits to bring the "cream" to the top for better stain resistance any time soon....But you have to give him props he is dedicated to the cause.
