Nice mud job. I like to rub the mud down with a rub brick and then vacuum the walls real well. When rubbing, feel for any humps that might need to be flattened out.

Looking good Lou, when it’s down to the framing and have a 2” riser. I can have preslope done, pan in, wired and pan tested, scratched and mudded in 4 days. On a push if I use fast setting products I can get that down to 3 days.

On a larger job, 3 normal size showers take 5 days to prep because most the time is waiting for products to dry. If I’m doing just one shower I basically have 2-3 early days because I’m waiting for preslope or water test, or scratch. On 3 I can bounce to each one and do each step to make a full day for those beginning steps.

Now imagine being able to just tile to that mud, a lot of time saved not having to topically waterproof it correctly AND... you’ve spent roughly $350-400 on each shower prep. That’s a good amount saved on “newer better” material prep that goes into your pocket.
