Mostly wood frame houses around here and never the room for mud floors so it’s not often I get to float a floor.

But I got to do one here.
Bonded 4-1 with 2 layers of sill gasket around the perimeter for expansion gap.

Slab took a real nose dive in some spots, has to be a good 2.5+ inches of float in some areas. Glad I had the old paddle mixer running for this!

Set the slope for a 40” Schluter tile top linear drain as well.
Will get covered by Ditra Heat Duo (the thermal break version) and kerdi. Planning to do scratch/brown walls too after the plumber does his rough in

Took around 5hrs start to finish.

Hands down best trowel for slinging fat mud. Marshalton and Bon make them, “Plastic Texturing Trowel.”
