Question epdm on basement floor

I want to build my own shower pan in the basement, and I have seen the article's on doing them on an upstairs wood floor. What would the procedure be for a concrete floor? A friend said thinset first, then the epdm, then another layer of thinset. Also, how do I treat the extra material in the corners? Cutting and glueing just seems like a good place for a leak later on.
Thanks for the help. Snuffy

Welcome, Snuffy.

Sounds like you could most benefit from first reading everything you find in the Shower Construction section of our whorl-famous Liberry.

Once you get a feel for the steps in constructing a proper shower pan in the traditional method, come back here with your specific questions.

EPDM is for roofing applications, by the way. It's not a material you want to use in conjunction with Portland cement products.

My opinion; worth price charged.
