Thanks! I wasn't crazy about the drain location, but some of those 100 year old houses are tough to get things where you want them.

Nope. On a square pan the goal should be for the drain to go in the center. Your feet naturally straddle the drain. No one would actually have to stand on it.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Not a big fan of the liner tiles on the curb. Also looks like there are slivers of tile were the pan meets the walls.

Is that a Kerdi pan? If so why is it so wavy? The mixer and head look low. 48" for the mixer and 80"-84" for the head, IMO, should be the sweet spot.

Not to bash on it, just missing some attention to detail. I also think the soap dish in a shower looks tacky, but I have had to put them in at the customers request. I've always centered them.

It looks like there is some serious lippage on the angle of the curb.

One last thing, I've never install Wedi board before, shouldn't the Kerdi come up on it and not behind it?

Sorry to be such a downer, I just have to be honest.

Thanks, you have a sharp eye.
My supplier sold the last Wedi curb to someone, so I had to use bricks and cover with memnbrane, it is Dal Seal TS, made by Noble. It was pretty flat attached to the mud, maybe my phone camera.
I don't do the plumbing, it is GC;s plumber, not teaching others what to do.
Same with soap dish, I just placed where they asked.
I admit it was not my best install, 1/4"-3/8" silvers at the bottom.
I had to push the curb out a little as they have no plans to change the floor tiles and had no spare floor tiles-old curb was 25 degrees out rather than 22.5.
From drainage point, the wedi boards can be over the membrane(sorry the pictures don't show but the membrane is actually installed about 6" high over the walls), I used blue sealer to attach the boards to membrane at the bottom.
