I'd like to pick the brians of experience to help me acheive a leak free shower on our loft conversion, if I may.
I have an alcove that is plasterboarded to the sides and back with a low sloping celing (loft conversion!). The shower tray is tight fit at the bottom. I have sealed the plater and intend to apply homelux matting to all sides.
- Is a silicone joint best at the shower tray/ wall interface?
- Can homelux be applied to the ceiling and support stone mosaic tiles?
- What is notch trowel is best. So far I intent to use a 4mm for the matting glue (BALS rapidset) and 6mm for the tiles. Is this OK?

2 Not advisable, might give someone a headache
3 4mm for matting, 6mm for say 6" tiles but personally use 8mm on say 8-12" tiles. Can depend on the flatness of the walls. Take a couple of tiles off after you have fixed them and check what the coverage is like.
Don't forget to prime the plaster walls first before using the rapidset
