Sorry, never used Pro-Form.
I'm curiuos how you folks set a shower, over CBU or floating?
Niches need to be set up before the tile is done.


Good luck,

~ is it everywhere or just a couple of spots?

I'd cut the grout out and re-grout the spots, it's just white.

......why don't plumbers use the clear primer!!!

Good luck,

If you were going to design a tile saw...

What would it be like?

I'll start.

It should be lightweight enough to carry as one unit.

and the deck/ rail assembly needs to be simple.

Glass Block

I recently stacked some block, and the homeowner had me cap them with 4X4 tumbled marble. I was sceptical, but it looked really nice.
It was 4" thick block and a travartine walk-in.

sloppy holidays

I recently picked up a six pack of Brown Shugga'

This is a seasonal beer that packs a punch! 9.9%. It actually tastes nice, but pricey. $8/6.
