Seriously, there are so many layers in this floor. I have a whole new respect for the hidden depths of floors.
Already in place:
Layer 1: Insulation
Layer 2: Plywood
The next step is to lay down the moisture-resistant tile backer board, which needs to be mortared into place. So... I guess in my lasagna metaphor, that makes it the tomato sauce?
Layer 3: Mortar
|Mix it up|
|Spread it out|
Layer 4: Backer board
|Measure and cut.|
(We actually did this step first. But putting it here works better for the lasagna metaphor. DON'T JUDGE MY ART.)
|Plunk (and screw) it down|
Wipe the seams and any excess mortar with a damp sponge. Wait 24 hours for the mortar to set. Then go back through and grout the seams.
|Celebrate with love! Very dusty love.|
