Listen, Im estatic to hear it is your own home. Your second layer, you said you screw that as well? That penetrates the liner then correct? Im not real sure about you or trim carpentry but I don't like it. I just don't like it.

Wow! Still can't see how the weep holes are gonna work on a clamping drain here. I could have floated a cement pan faster than messing with that hardi and then had money left over to buy me a cold drink, and I am not even fast at mud pans.

The inspector approved it huh! They are tile experts, so they would know.

Alright,

I am now going to admit that you guys know more than I do, and swallow my pride. I will tear out this pan when I get the chance, and do it right.

Thank you for your input guys. I will keep you posted on my house as it progresses.

Tile trends, I was going to have the second layer cemented to the first layer after the membrane. EDIT: But of course no longer will as it is coming out.

I obviously don't know what I don't.

Here are some other pictures of my house.

Just bought it for 56k. In south Minneapolis. My wife and I plan to fix it up and live in it over the next year or two, then sell it and buy another(I may not have made a profit if I hadn't posted my "pan method").

Thanks for kicking me in the ass guys.

OK, here's y'all a new thread. Seemed to fit in with the non-standard shower pan thread, but I didn't get to vote, just got to move it.

With a couple of the less helpful comments removed. This is a place for learning, guys. If you don't agree with what someone else posts, so state. But keep it factual and keep it civil.

Good luck with the home. Looks like it may need a bit of work. Just saying.

The ugly red tiled bathroom is the one that almost got the bad pan... Was tile set on plywood with thinset.

Luke, you'd likely do well to start a thread in the Advice forum for the shower project on this house. Better venue since you're gonna start over.

Looks like you got your work cut out for you Luke.
Glad you are open minded about your shower, some guys come on here with heads hard as rocks. The Advice board is a good idea, and keep us posted on some of that fancy coped work you got in that house.

Thanks again guys.

Yeah Hammy, I do alot of different things and as such have not yet become extremely good in any one area.

Yes, The Kid, that is a stiletto. I framed for awhile. I also have the sticker on my van "my tool is a stiletto."
