    It passed my 24hr duct tape test but I have left a heat gun with the owner and I won't be starting walls till Monday so should be done.
    Got a massive to do list tomorrow if I want to tile floor Friday:
    Drain down and pipe up for new rad and batten out for rad fixings
    Reroute cable from old shaver socket to supply new mirror
    Overboard floor and set dots and rails (one half of floor slopes down)
    Tape and tank
    Pour some SLC on my way out

    Tiles are rectified 60x60 floor and 60x30 wall and the sizing is spot on and the room allows for joints to match up without silly compromises. I can count on one hand how many times that's happened for me.
    So today set out walls on the vertical to get my floor set out and got them fixed.

    Nice job macten! That bath is going nowhere. Lost count of the amount of times I have walked into someone else's work and the bath isn't strapped.

    The one I took out had nothing, no battens, no silicone and not even those useless little wall brackets that sometimes get supplied.

    It's a method of damming off and setting a datum all in one prior to self levelling. A good spirit level or laser to set the dots at the correct height (I use packers for the dots stuck down with rapid set) and mortar mix for the rails (use a wet straight edge):
