Got the thinset and fibatape on the Durock. Tomorrow starts the waterproofing with RedGard.

I have a question about the thinset... Should I also tape and mud around the niche or should I leave it and just RedGard it?

Just redgard it. It will be seamless with that and more than 2x as waterproof as those niches are already tight to begin with when installed right.

Thanks Eric. Instructions say to just caulk around the perimeter. So I'll do that and once its cured, I'll RedGard the shower 2+ times..

Thanks!

This just turned into a Steelers hating thread... I can't help it, I'm originally from Pittsburgh. Isn't it worse to be a Cincy or Browns fan?

Last time I checked, entrepreneurs weren't clamoring to open Bengals or Browns bars nationwide... Boooooom Headshot!

Looks good!

I have a question about the Tile Redy insert. Back on page 1 it looks like you have the lip screwed to the studs, but on page 3 when you have the durock up, it looks like it's installed after the durock so the lip sits on top of the durock. What did you actually do? I'm considering one of these for my project.

Thanks

Hey Pete,

No, it just looks like it. The niche is screwed to the studs on all 4 sides. The niche is 1/2 inch thick and so is the Durock. They are flush against each other and NOT the niche over the Durock.

Did you do any planning for the niche so that it ends up on a natural seam of the tile? I'm working on my basement bath and wondering how to go about properly placing the niche.

Thanks!

Caulked all 4 sides of the niche as well as all the screws with clear silicone.

Benleef -- I didn't. When I map out the tile on the wall, I'll take that into consideration and try to make it look good.

Hey guys. Opinion time...

Top Right - Shaker Beige
Bottom Left - Cape Hatteras Sand

Let me know what you think. All paint is Ben Moore and will be in their Bath and Spa style.
