new shower Tile floor Questions


How do I put in a new shower floor to be tiled. I've framed in the area. What do i need to put in the area where the drain is located? what material should form the bottom of the shower prior to the tile?

new shower Tile floor Questions


Ok, I have a question or two:

I'm building a shower much like the one in your link (neo-angle, or whatever you want to call it...corner shower), but I'm building it on a new concrete slab. Most people put down some tar and some mesh, much like you have, and staple it to a subfloor. Since I won't have a subfloor, how would I best prep the area for tile.

PS - I think I'm going to go the Kerdi route.

If you are using a surface membrane like Kerdi---no liner is needed under the base---
