Hello all, I'm wanting to build a semi-curbless shower on a wood subfloor and not use the foam preform pan or a linear drain. I have a 4'x5' area where a jacuzzi tub was at with the drain in the center of area. If I make a mud base, can I have to make the curb 2" high instead of a standard 4 or 5" high curb? I thought about dropping the subfloor 3/4" then making the dry pack mud slopped toward the drain. The using a sheet membrane to waterproof it.
Is this doable or not recommended?

I've done versions of what you're explaining. If your dropping the subfloor make sure it's sound, your tile installation is only as good as your substrate. I'd make sure to waterproof the floor outside the shower as well for extra insurance.

I'm planning on tiling all the bathroom floor after the shower is completed. Would you use the same membrane to the subfloor?
