Glad somebody restated this thread I was gonna but not quite a big enough smart ass.

Today I looked at an ADA shower. Tomorrow I drive 280 miles round trip to quote yet another ADA shower. This is starting to seem like de ja vu. Hopefully the one tomorrow won't be quite as tricky as the one I have been trying to gameplan for today.

Judging from the rest of what you said in the first post, this is going under tile. I thought one wasn't supposed to use any plywood with a face grade less than "C" in a tile installation. Am I missing something here?

I drove up to Craig, CO. to look at an ADA shower. Very friendly guy, and this one would be much simpler than the one I looked at yesterday. We shall see

poured concrete base today, will polish tomorrow. HO has to decide what goes on the top - concrete or wood.

Went this morning to meet with a lady about an addition I am going to do for her. Went over details, got her signed and a materials deposit. Later went to Menards to order stuff for another job they had all screwed up, that took forever.. Went to the Bath job I am working on, insulated and grouted floor.. Left to meet my wife for lunch at applebees with the kids (kids eat free there on wed)

Didn't feel like working in the pm.. went to a contractor buddies house for a while, then the two of us went to help out a friend of ours who is going through some hard times. My buddies been trying to make her house livable for a month every night after work pro bono. he had sheetrock done and the bath done, needed to tile in the kitchen done. They had tile there and we had tools, started about 4:00, I laid 200 feet and left him finishing a couple cuts at 7:00 and went to church. Came home and put the kiddos to bed.
