In response to Re: Building roman tub
After you build the framework, you will have trowel at least a 3/4" mortar base on top of the liner, and then thin set the tile to that. Unless your tub is different than most tiled roman tubs, you will not use it too much after the first couple of times and the novelty wears off. They are cold, and uncomfortable. Most in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area have been converted to planters.

: I want to build and tile my own roman tub. After I frame and line it with 3/4" plywood, I am not sure how to secure the polyliner and still keep it waterproof. After that, how do I install and secure wonderboard and not puncture the liner? One tiler suggested applying tile with thinset directly to the poly liner. Will that hold? The tub will be on the second floor and I DON'T WANT LEAKS. What should I do?
