Basement bathroom

Hello...

I am planning on tiling my basement bathroom. Also, want to heat the floor as well.

Here is my question: Since the rest of my basement has a dricore subfloor under the carpet, I want to build up my tile floor so I don't have too much of a height transition between the tiles and carpet. Can I lay down 3/4" plywood or cement board or something else like that so my tiles are close to the same height?

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Thanks, Craig.

A bonded mudbed would be the way to go here. If the area is small, you could also use a self leveling compound here as well. The cheaper solution will be the bonded mudbed. Plywood and cement board wont work here.

Ouch was hoping for something easier! Since this is the only room where I need to raise the floor a bit - would it make sense to stud the walls first then lay the new cement within the new studwalls?

Could I install the tub before the floor too? That would end up having the floor lower under the tub....

Thanks...
