Why are you taking them out? Are they OSB or are they Advantec or other flooring materials. You can tile over the Advantec but not real OSB. What thickness are they? Are you talking about two layers?

The tile needs to sit flush with the toilet flange. What depth you are dealing with is still not clear. Two pieces of 1/2 or 3/4 or what. You could use CBU over the concrete as a shim and to level as needed to get the heights right.

You need to use EDPM membrane to completely seal the exposed areas and sill of a shower window. Be sure you have positive drainage.

I thought EDPM membrane materials were used for roofing only?
