Dominik, there are many types of setting bed
construction; what you are describing (sort of) is
mortar bed. This is the highest quality installation,
but also requires the most skill and knowledge.

Before you do anything else, get a copy of Setting
Tile by Michael Byrne (Taunton Press,
If you seriously intend to do a mortar bed, also get
his Floors video where he demonstrates the techinque.
I would also suggest that you do at least one
practice run by building a dummy floor out of some
2x4s & plywood (nothing fancy, just a place practice
leveling and finishing mortar. If this is your first
tile job, you might want to get some cheap tile and
practice setting and grouting as well.
