In middle of steam bath shower renovation with MTI tub. Vapor barrier and hardiboard installed rough opening fairly square. Planning to use different tiles inside and outside of the shower door. Is there any reason I cannot install the shower door system directly onto the hardiboard and tile up to it on each side?

A Bathology steam shower door is a great choice for your home steam bath.  Please share details on a few questions to ensure an appropriate response.

1.  Can you provide the thickness of the dissimilar and opposing tiles?
2.  Are you considering a swing or sliding door for this environment?
3.  You mention an MTI tub, does this feature interface with the steam shower door?

I look forward to your reply.

Sliding door to sit on top of front edge of MTI bath. Bath tiles wood be of similar thickness but my concern is the squareness of the opening. Although slightly off square, I would prefer to correct this with shims underneath the frame and hide the offset with the tiles.

You certainly can tile up to the frame of a Bathology steam shower sliding door.  Doing so will only impact unlikely door replacement. 

Should you do so, it would be my recommendation to set the frame, hang the doors, verify their successful operation and then remove them during tile work.  Another thought might be to tile up to a scribed outline of the frame.  I feel this approach could lead to potential concerns and should be discussed with a tile professional.

If you can, please post some images and an update on your project.  There are many folks out there with similar questions.

Thank you!
