Kevin makes a good point. It's hard to figure how much grout you will need for the pebble floor. It will go through a lot but you don't want to buy a whole bunch of it and have buckets left over...

Yes. Start at the double door. The other direction would depend on what else is happening in the room. If it's just a big rectangle then I would either put even cuts at the top/bottom walls or center...

Assuming it's nailed down hardwood and not floating a nice little 1/8 inch gap filled with backer rod and color matched silicone should last a long time.

Hi Shawn,

I don't know how helpful this is but it looks like you have tile-over-tile with a drain extension. Here's a link to those types of drain extensions that you have there.

The reason for concern about pebble tiles on foam...

The reason for concern about pebble tiles on foam pans has to do with point load- too much weight over too concentrated of an area. This is something that you found out when you put the ladder leg...

I have the same feeling as Peter- that type of cracking usually indicates that it's taking on water.

I'm confused on what the radius pieces are and where they are being installed. Are these cove base pieces? Are they outside corners? Are they quarter rounds?

Links and/or photos would be great. :)

I've heard that they are working on improving their current saw and/or coming out with a newer bigger one. But I'm pretty sure it's a ways off. Probably still in planning stages now.

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Ultracolor should be the more durable of the two. Flexcolor doesn't need sealing. If you want the best of both worlds then Mapei has an epoxy grout-...

This sounds like a good plan to me. Not as good as leaving it the way it is but still a sound way to do the repair. ;)

The masking can leave a ridge. A good way to get rid of that is simply to go over it again with your smoothing tool (usually a finger). A little bit of alcohol on your finger will take the ridge...

I would cut out the loose areas, scrape the thinset, and reinstall. Put some weight over the pieces that want to curl up. Boxes of tile work well for this.

The only way to get any insulation into a 2x4 wall is to add foam to the back of the niche. The thicker the foam-->the better the insulation-->the less room in the niche.

What you could do is add...

I've installed these vents before but have never cut them and honestly never thought about cutting them.

But it could be done. If you are still installing this horizontally I don't think it would...

There's no reason not to have a pattern or even lining them all up. Most people do random to sort of mimic wood but it's not unusual at all to do them in a more structured pattern.

I have one and use it sometimes but never as a reason to get out of back buttering. It works fine but I seem to have gravitated back to my 1/2 x 1/2 square notch. Not really sure why.

It's been a little while since I've used Flexcolor but I remember the plastic sheet fitting down inside the bucket. I don't remember it coming above the lid and the lid latching over it.

I agree with Paul. It's messy but the photos are very close up and it doesn't appear that anything is significantly an issue. Fairly easy fixes so far. :)
