    Hi Ian mate....

    I would just set out your tiles to suit the room....
    Finish the ply half way under the door....and you will get carpet to tile trims from topps...ctd....or any diy store.......

    i would only use powdered flexi adhesive on wood mate.just to be on the safe side.if that ready mix stuff ends up being crap it u that gets the bad name.

    Gotta agree with DHceramics once again. Set room to suit tiles. Centring the loo with a tile is a good starting point but it doesnt always work. Every job is different. Finish half way in the door jamb.
    2 part flexi adhesive always and never touch ready mixed floor adhesive.

    Depends on the stuff you are talking about. Ardex 7001 is an SPF but designed especially for wooden floors.

    Sir Ramic is probably on about stuff like Fastflex which has latex fluid.

    Basicaly i dont like tiling onto wooden floors with single part flexible adhesives...just my opinion. Its not to say that you cant but why take chances. I like to sleep at night and i know doing it the way i know i can sleep.
    Yes i have used single part flexi in the past and never had issues.
