Walk In Shower - Kerdi vs Dry Pack

I am planning my bathroom remodel and I will be building a neo shaped walk-in shower. If it has a glass door is it a "walk in"? Anyway, because of the shape the Kerdi 48 x 48 base would have to be cut to suit. Is that a good idea or should I make my own with dry pack mortar? Also, what's the consensus on the Kerdi curb at the door? Is it worth it? Of the neo shape, two walls are exterior walls and two will be tiled half walls with glass the rest of the way up. Do I put a Kerdi curb at the door or a 2 x 4 curb wrapped in Kerdi membrane?

Hi Mike,

Either way will work as long as the drain is fairly close to center. The foam curb is excellent, makes things easier.

If you build your own curb, remember you can not apply Kerdi direct to lumber.
