@TheEvilGreebo of course.... The entire room will be wrapped in Kerdi; walls, floor, ceiling...

comment Should I apply waterproofer on the subfloor beneath a shower pan?
I've never heard of doing this. In order to pull this off I would need to add joists that line up with the dimensions of the shower. If the shower pan is done properly, I shouldn't expect water to get into the subfloor.... otherwise I'd be in big trouble (even if it was treated).

comment Can a stud have a power line IN it?
@ChrisCudmore I've also seen wires attached inside california corners and also on the backside of posts where walls meet on the other side. So the question of whether or not the wire could be "inside" the stud is probably "no" but could there be a wire where the stud-finder signals? Yes, absolutely.

comment What do the numbers on a cordless drill mean?
You haven't noticed any difference between #1 and #22? Your drill is defective or you're drilling marshmallows.

comment What is the most efficient way to dig a hole in a slope?
+1 In my opinion it is silly to do a job like this without heavy machinery. Digging a 6ft hole by hand is backbreaking work.

comment Do I need to prime/seal new drywall behind cabinets?
@Tester101 yes, I would agree, but he will likely come back to touch-up after the tile and stone goes in. He wants to paint before the tile goes in because they will almost certainly be using damp sponges... and on unsealed drywall the med/tex is water soluble.
