I just have a quick update, nothing too special, I haven’t been feeling too well lately, not really sure why, I can’t seem to get all the way better no matter how hard I try! I did manage to get some stuff done though, here are the pictures:
I have a shower! These are the nooks for my soap and shampoos.
My half wall with the water filter in the bottom left.
I got the majority of the cracks filled in. I have done some research, it seems you should either have a membrane behind the board or cover it with a membrane on top. I obviously don’t have a membrane behind and was looking at redguard for a membrane on top but also found some mixtures you can add to the thinset that claim to do the same thing and make a water barrier. Does anyone have any experience with this they can share?
You can see some poor measurements on my part, I definitely had to fill gaps, which I did with two layers of mesh tape and thin-set. I show this because, well, it happens. This was actually supposed to be one piece but I cut it an inch short and had to use what I could ad patch the rest, in the end it will work!

I am thinking of using this in the bottom of my shower, what do you think? is this stuff uncomfortable to stand on? it is a lot more uneven than normal tile.
I haven’t posted any exterior pictures in a while, just thought I’d throw a couple up.
Not much has changed in a while out here
And inside, we got the second layer of mud up and it’s looking good. I could not have done this without dad so I am really thankful for his help!
