Finally got all of the demo done, including the removal of the fiberglass shower pan. I have learned that the installers must have combined two career paths - one as a plumber and the other as a butcher.

I hope I have a piece of 23/32" OSB laying around, that's a pretty small patch to buy a $50 sheet.

Spent a bunch of time shimming studs to get the Kerdi board flat today; time well spent and I know I will thank myself later when setting hexagonal wall tiles down the road. I'll be soldering in a new shower valve tomorrow then off to Kerdi band on seams and fasteners.

Question about the Schluter setting products that have come out since my last shower build: Worth using or back to Versabond like my last shower? (No concern about warranty)

IMO, if both are readily available then pick the one that gives you the warm and fuzzies. I've not ever used a real "high-quality" mortar, but I do know VB works just fine.

I know you mentioned adding a stud where the Kerdi meets the drywall. Sometimes we end up adding two or three on each side. You want to be able to fasten your glass enclosure to a stud, not just into the Kerdiboard. It's very likely the original enclosure was fastened to the tile and mud and no stud. Mud will hold screws and anchors, Kerdiboard may not.

Yes, I went over my layout again yesterday and confirmed that the existing double-studs where the glass attached previously are in the right spot for the new glass.

Hi Snets, Long time.

I think I must have used VersaBond on every Kerdi shower I've ever done. I swear by it.

Versabond it is! Just picked up a bag today. Installed my new shower valve and got the final Kerdi Board up as my drywall guy arrive to rid me of the early 2000's faux finish stucco or plaster look that I was once very proud of.

Kerdi Band seams and fasteners tomorrow is the plan.
