Quick question to lead things off. Due to the floor layout, half of my curb is at the same height as an adjacent floor. I guess it would be considered a hybrid curbless shower.

If my curb has 1/4" cbu on top to match the floor where entry and vanity is, will that be a potential failure? Should I bed it in with thinset?

Not only would it help greatly with matching heights but I imagine it would help keep it stable since it's so thin. I used 1/2" for everything on my previous since I had no field tile other than the mosaic floor in my shower.

Many questions are popping up, but I’d start by asking: Which method of waterproofing are you planning on?

Next thing would be to ask if you’ve got a sketch or something for us to see what you’ve got going on.

I use Noble membranes and all the usual stuff is in order down below structurally. Sistered 2x12s with one and two 2x6s depending on which part of the floor. 3/4" T&G with 5/8" on top. The longest span is 6' and that is the middle to bottom area in the drawing.

I just realized I neglected to put any details on my pan...."Curb" is 2 1/4" above bottom of pan so once mud bed is in the finished height puts the slope at .33 per foot if I remember correct. That is assuming 1/4" CBU on top of curb and the rest of the hashmarked area in the drawing.

Here is a quick napkin sketch if I remember how to post pics.
