Try mixing up a tiny batch and then you'll be able to take your time with it.

Remember that it better to toss some thin set in the garbage than to make a mess or end up leaving a big hump on the wall because you rushed it.

Check about the 9 minute mark. He is applying thin set to the wall.

A 6" drywall blade is the easiest for taping the seams===remember--keep it thin---very thin--

I highly recommend waterproofing the board--pay extra attention around the window

How do make the tape does'tget dragged when I pass over with my knife, even after embedding it into the thinset I'vejust smeared. And with a 6" putty knife how to do the inside and outside corners?

You figured it out---

Before is gets to hard---run your knife (the 6" blade) over the seams to knock off any ridges---

Ok that's good news. What areas would qualify as vulnerable and how would I waterproof them?

You said the video didn't show applying to the walls but it does show about the 9 minute mark.

When I said it "doesn't show applying thinset to the walls" I didn't mean tiling. I meant I couldn't find a video illustrating how to tape the seams of the CBU with thinset.

But it's all done now. Thanks.

I knew you'd get it.

Basically, troweling on for tiles and smoothing over seams just comes to you after trying it a few times. It's about the same motion to do it. Just takes a bit of practice which you now have.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the encouragement pugsy.

I'm just really stuck on whether to apply the RedGard. I didn't think it would be that expensive and this is a make-shift job in my opinion so I don't wanna pump much more money into it, especially considering I still need to but the tiles.

I was surprised at what you must pay for the Red Guard---

The most critical area is the window---the area below it and the plumbing wall---

There are a number of good paint on waterproofing membranes--have you called around to see if your local stores offer something at a more reasonable price?

Maybe I should take a walk next door and knock out some tiles for the good of everyone here to see what has happened in 9 years without any water proofing.

The wrecking ball comes tomorrow so this would be my last chance to investigate.
