CX,
Thanks so much for all your help. I plan on adding more support and will back butter each tile to try and obtain 100% mortar coverage. Great idea of leaving red gard off bottom edge. I wouldn't have thought of that. Have a great New Year!

Last wall on outdoor shower

Well the shower is up and looks great. The boss has a change order! One of the walls she wants a planter that is 4' tall that goes the width of the shower and the wall with plants provides the privacy.

Question I have is this: I was going to make the bones out of treated lumber and then put cement board around the wood. If I do this I was thinking about skim coating the cement board for looks. Is there a thinset mortar than I can use in this type of application? I do not plan putting tile on it. My wife likes the idea of the cement look.

As always thanks!

David

I can't speak from experience but it sounds like a surface bonding cement, such as Quickcrete Quickwall, would work well in that application.

I did just check with quikcrete through chat feature on their website. Quickwall is the way to go. Thanks again for the suggestion!

David, I suppose this planter will have soil in it. I like the idea of making it out of concrete blocks. I'd sure think about building the planter with mortar between the blocks. Maybe it's not an issue but with the weight of the dirt and it being 4 ft tall, I'd want to make sure the pressure doesn't push on the blocks enough to cause problems. I'd take it a step further and fill the blocks with cement too.
