Good instructions. I was surpised that using self-leveling compound wasn't suggested instead of flat troweling the thinset over the wires.
If you use just enough to cover the wire and make sure that the wire is flat throughout the entire floor so that it doesn't stick out once you pour the self-leveling compound it makes tiling a breeze.

We did this to our small master bath last spring, and it was a long project after work during the week days, but well worth it. Keep in mind the added height that the heating wire will add to the mortar. We started in a far corner with the tiling, where there was no wire, and had to fudge a transition to the higher tile that layed on the wire. Turned out well, but felt a little dumb for not keeping the mortar thicker from the start.

Warm feet in the morning is awesome!
