Lemley,

This is your first shower right? There a lot more to building a shower correctly than what you're asking. In short, no, you do not use concrete board on shower floors. Do you have a plan for waterproofing this shower?

Go here; http://www.ontariotile.com/showergallery.html and here; https://picasaweb.google.com/1014343...erPlywoodFloor and here; https://picasaweb.google.com/1014343...bByTile4YouInc

Absorb and come back with questions.

Jaz
