Cory, I definitely agree. One sec and I'll post the solution I came up with.

If I need one, I've got no problem with using a bonding agent... I'm just not sure if it's the right approach. I'm trying to figure out if I should fill the entire hole with a latex/portland cement product without aggregate (which I know I'll need for the crack repair); or use a bonding agent and quickrete, or something in between.

Actually, I'll be laying a layer of DITRA and then tiling with a medium-bed mortar and a lot of care. I don't think Cement board is rated for the kind of application you suggest by the NTCA; you need to affix cement board to the slab somehow (screws or another cement product) and you'll typically end up with cracks where the pieces of cement-board meet due to the differential expansion and contraction.

The red marked area is the hollow sounding area; I should note that the hole is now large enough to encompass the hollow sounding area. This picture was taken a few hours ago.

comment What should I use to transition from tiles to hard wood floor?
I wouldn't use sanded latex caulk; it collects dirt way too easily. I would use silicone. I personally prefer Latasil, which is made for flooring and shower applications and acts as a movement joint as well.

comment How can I resheathe behind brick fascia without removing the brick?
Shimon - It would be time consuming to remove the old brick without breaking it, and it would be impossible to match the old brick with a new brick (I've tried for some other repairs I wanted to do...) -- so yes, I'm still going back and forth on the brilliant vs. crazy myself, but have yet to find a solid answer.

Also: Hey, y'all, long time no see. Sorry, work and the amount of things I've found wrong with this house have kept me off the internet by and large. This one's a right puzzler, though, and I though it'd be worth posting.
