Shower Pan - pouring final layer of mud


The liner passed the flood test and i am preparing to mud the pan.

Would I install the cement board on the inside of the curb prior to the final pour of mud.
I am thinking it will aid in holding the cement board in place because I cannot use nails below the height of the curb.(on the inside of the pan)

A mud curb is safer----wire mesh.nailed to the outside of the curb--then fat mud .

Shower Pan - pouring final layer of mud


Thanks Mike,

Any thoughts on a modified mud base for the curb.

I was thinking of placing the cement board on the outside and using mud and lath to complete the top and inside.

My reasoning is that i have to match the outside of the threshold with some drywall from the wall and cant get my mind around doing it with mud.

I think that will work---Just don't want to perforate the liner in a wet area.
