I've done several showers over the years. Last couple I used the Kerdi system

standard shower you can use their foam underpaid which gives you the correct

tile and I could see light from the bathroom in the crawlspace below at the
floor/wall junction.  Two years ago I fixed it with a thick bead of silicone
bathroom caulk and last month it was still dry underneath, but I know it needs
