Are you planning on using greenboard in the shower?

Yeah. I'm going to tile the entire area; ceiling included(or what ceiling there is).

Well if you decide to go any bigger then 6" tile going up that angle ceiling make shore you butter the backs good and use roof nails to hold the tiles until dried serves as spacer and to hold the tile just a FYI.

That's what I was trying to get at when I asked how you were waterproofing the shower...

Excellent choice!

I watch Mike Holmes enough to know it's the right way to do it .

I went ahead and got those two Price Pfister valves, only I put an extra few dollars and got the valve with stops. I plan on using Kenzo line of shower trim.

I also got the first mortar bed in this afternoon, and I'm thrilled with the outcome, considering I had never even mixed mortar before today. I followed these instructions in detail, which I found linked on this site some time ago.

Building a shower pan with pre-sloped mortar bed, liner and curb.

I'm thinking I will need to carve out a little spray foam to add in supports for the backer board on the sloped ceiling. I'm hate to do it, but it makes sense.

Here is another good resource for you...

John Bridge Tile Forum, DIY Tile Advice, Tile How-to Information, Tile Your World

In addition to the main website and his e-book there is also a very good tile forum there.
