comment self-supporting walls
It might have some flex in the middle of the room. It would sure by nice to have a few brackets that tie it to the ceiling. Maybe that would be allowed as opposed to a solid wall going all the way to the ceiling.

comment DIYers - Unknowingly used wrong product! - Type 1 Mapei used for 12X12 tiles
I also vote for leave it and see. It doesn't take much to hold tiles down. If they popped that easily, almost nobody would be able to tile. I looked at a spec sheet for Type 1 Mapei and I didn't see anything about not using on floor tiles that are 12x12.

comment What kind of screws/bolts do I need to mount a heavy TV mount?
To help size the drill bit, hold it over the bolt, with the drill aligned parallel to the bolt. You should be able to see some threads sticking out. The drill should be about the size of the solid part of the bolt not counting the threads.

comment Current state of the art foundation waterproofing
Good point on the drainage. I will take care of surface drainage, but the house sits down a hill. I may need to put in a French drain higher on the hill.

Yes, installing foundation waterproofing and a perimeter drain are the main reasons for tearing out the slab.
