Also, has anyone ever built a shower using tile for the walls and floor When my folks added on to their house, it included a tiled shower on the second floor. They had it hot mopped before the tile went in.Basically, they put 2x12's on edge between the studs at the floor level, creating a flat surface with the studs. A thin (1" or so) layer of a cement product went on the floor. This had a slight slope to it so that water would run to the drain. Then they spread a hot tar around the floor and up the 2x12's on the wall. It's supposed to create a water tight seal, even if things move a bit - which they shouldn't. The cement backer board went on the walls, then tile over everything.They haven't noticed any leaks, and it's been about 10 years now.--Peter
