In response to Re: Basement shower base

: Thanks,
: You can use a "shower pan" of the fiberglass type, and set it on the concrete between the framed walls. Or you could do a mudset base, which will require more effort. If this type of work is new to you, I would suggest the premade pan. Terry

: : I have inherited from previous owner a rough shower stall in the basement in which he used a floor drain and built its walls using cement blocks, painting the whole thing including the still-exposed pipes with epoxy paint, very shiny. I want to redo the whole thing, furring out the walls and using cement backer-board, tiling it entirely. Question, since it was built on the basement concrete floor, should I still use a waterproof membrane for its floor? Any advice on furring out the cement block walls to ensure a permanent installation. Thanks for your help (and for this great informative system you have instigated here).

Thanks.... I want to tile the floor as well as the walls. If I do a "mudset" as you mention, should I use a waterproof membrane just as I would if it were on the second floor? Or can I simply build it up to a proper level with proper slope and then tile right over that? Thanks.
