Now onto the shower...
I have built a bathroom in the basement, subfloor, and tiles are in, toilet is in (thanks Oh Mike!), now onto the shower.

I have a cement pan with liner and backer board up. Unfortunately I made the doorway too small and don't have the room to put backer board on the inside of the door frame (where the door hinge would be set).

Am I able to staple Metal lath to the inside of the door frame, then thin set mortar, then tile?

Other solutions are welcome! Unless they involve starting over... :(

As you can see I have gotten to the point of using Redgard and was just about to tile (after another coat of Redgard), but thought I may be doing something wrong. I have simply taped the 2x4 frame using proper fiberglass mesh tape and then put a coat of thin set on and a coat of Redgard.

So again.... Should I put metal lath over this then thin set, Redgard, then tile?

I admit I'm blond, but I'm totally confused by your pic.
Is it right way up?
