Need help framing ceiling of shower for tile, ATYPICAL STYLE


I never used a backer rod----

Have you looked into the Schluter system? I have never used it myself---

How to build a shower - Building a shower pan with pre-sloped mortar bed, liner and curb.

My shower pans are built similar to this---then the walls and ceiling in a steam shower are sealed with Latacretes Hydroban.

Those steam showers are very enjoyable----and not all that difficult to do well--with the modern surface membranes available success is much easier than the old days----

Plumbing in the steam generator needs to be considered----they have a condensation drain --so don't forget about that when doing your rough in---Some will have a condensate drain that can be fed back into the shower----

Good idea to have the installation instructions for you unit when planning this out.

Don't forget about electrical requirements----Mike-----

Does it matter if the cement board stops short of the mud pan (caulk gap) vs. having board go down to shower pan liner (caulk gap) and be inside and part of mud pan? Finding diagrams of both ways.

As long as the deck mud will be packed against the Durrock ans hold it in place--it will not matter how close to the liner/ preslope it is---
