Ok, thanks Dan
I just checked the areas down inside the grout joints the first area I did with thicker mixer seems hard the other side needs a tad more drying out but it’s getting stiff.
Around 6pm I think I shall shwack um

Then I will do my last lil row.

I found popping all mine off to be very satisfying.

Very satisfying indeed. I finally got to see 90% of it clean.

Very impressed with the Raimondi leveling system. Gave me a lippage free set.
Very happy to say the least. I did my best as I set to clean out grout joints so, although tedious I think that helped versus fighting it afterwards.

Bonus was my toilet flange ended up almost dead even to boot.

On to grout once the last row drys and I remove the clips tomorrow.

Thanks and future progress will be posted.
Next is grout, trim install, toilet install then vanity. Then on to tiling shower.

What color grout you think would look good?
I reckon sanded correct since it’s 1/8 grout line?

Took the time yesterday to make sure every joint was free of any allset.

Got an early start today and decided to go with Mapei Flexcolor CQ as I read a many a post here from guys having good luck with it.
I went with “Warm Grey” and couldn’t be happier.
The CQ spread nicely, filled good with zero effort and cleanup was a breeze.
I had took note you gotta work in a lil smaller areas 10-15ft cuz it flashes quick and if you wait to long it’s tough to wipe free.

It’s trim time and making a oak transition (probably modifying a 3/4 as it’s way to tall)

Not that anyone cares but, made some more progress today.
Got my trim all up, plumbing done and made my tile to hardwood transition.
Tile transition is a piece of ranch notched (table saw) to go up over lip of tile.
Varathaned to match my floor I did about 8 years ago.

Now gotta go around and fill then paint where I shot in all my finish nail. Yeehaw.

Nice job fitting the threshold, Mike, but what the heck is a "ranch" notch? I'm a big fan of tidy trim work.

I'm glad you axed that question, Dan. I was guessing "ranch notched" might mean the notching was done "here on the ranch," but it could also be a piece of "ranch" that was notched, maybe on a table saw? Or it was a piece of his table saw that was "ranch notched?"

Looks like a nicely done transition piece, though.

Is that level in a shower? If so, looks like you are 8-12 inches in to the shower with drywall mud, is that correct?

Ah, now I see it; ranch, notched. Notched ranch.

Whatever, looks nice!

Yes, that is a level leaning there (actually a 4ft & 6ft depending on picture)
Yes, I’m into the cement board but, with hotmud. Don’t see why that would be a problem plus it’s been primed n sealed.

Yes, that is a piece of ranch trim that I customized by notching it for the transition

By golly your right CX it was made and notched here on the ranch.

I got a feeling what it’s like to be Mr. Biden today.
I was hiding in my closet painting. Bwaahahaha

Smifwal got my head a turning.

Another question for you guys (smifwal had mentioned this) and thought I would just ask for clarification.
Smifwal had mentioned about the drywall compound going into the tile area inside shower (post #55 about pic in #52 see attached pic)
https://www.johnbridge.com/vbulletin...=130457&page=4
I didn’t see it being an issue (wth do I know) as it’s mostly all hotmud that has been primed and sealed with Sherwin William primer but, as usual with it being brought up thought I better double check as that gets my wheels a turnin and the smoke a pouring outta my ears.

In your fellers opinion think it’s ok to thinset over it if say I get some Kilz Guard and re-coat/re-prime that area inside the Schluter jolly really good?
It’s not very thick (no humps or bumps etc) and about 4-5” out from Schluter trim does it even hardly even covers texture in Durock.

I reckon I could scrape it off but, that might be a tad overkill if not needed.

Side note: I still plan to use the Akaline resistant mesh and thinset to do rest of Durock seams that are uncovered when I get to that part.

Thanks again

PS: Hey, I got my toilet set in today. No leaks from the flange on first go.
Sweet lord I no longer have to run up and down the stairs to use the restroom. It’s like Christmas today having that old Crane water/poo guzzler hooked back up.

I've lost track. Are you planning to put Kerdi on those shower walls?

No, it’s just Durock that has a vapor barrier behind it hanging over flange.

I plan on just thin-setting tile to Durock once I alkali resistant mesh tape etc.

Just looking to getting definitive awnsers about thinset over the lil thin layer of hotmud on Durock.
I suppose choices are best to my knowledge are:
1. It’s fine tile the way it is ?
or
2. For good measure re-prime the mudded spots with Kilz as added security etc?
or
3. Try to remove it. Scrape, brush, etc. (see post #58).

Found a great and easy way to get it off (all it did was raise a few strands of reinforcement). Did this lil section in a matter of minutes.
So, If it’s recommended to get it off and I can get it to look like this area will this suffice for a decent bond for thin-set doing 4x4 or 6x6 porcelain in the your guys opinions?
