Do it once, do it right. Use Kerdi (Shluter system)
Either standard Kerdi over whatever wallboard you want to use, or
KerdiBoard. You don't need soncrete backer with Kerdi, and you use
thinset - it is totally waterproof and pretty well goofproof. It is
not particularly cheap, but good seldom is. It has a handy "grid" for
helping to keep the tile-job square. They also have KerdiDrain for the
bottom of the shower (pan) to use with Ditra to make a waterproof
Cal is 100% right to look at Kerdi. Mapei makes a similar product, but
the Kerdi has it all.- at least make yourself aware of the product:
Schluter has been in the tile industry a long time.

Agreed! We used the standard Kerdi for our showers:
I had not heard of Kerdiboard. It looks interesting but wasn't available
when we built out house in 2003.
