Matt, how's that kerdi board steamer coming? I've been curious to see more pics.

Not much progress, having trouble selecting tile. I'm in an adjacent hall bath, but design not finished here either so probably finish up the prep then pull out for awhile.

Kerdiboard vs. Wedi side by side. They're both winners.

I've never seen a set up like that for float a pan Matt. Are you just setting the floont 2x4 to the total thickness of the pan ?

Nice Matt. So does this really look that bad Bill? White grout, white tile.... This is Hydrobarrier over mud. 4 coats. Should prove to be a long lived shower. Laticrete silver thinset, with the new experimental Laticrete pooky under the glass.

Just to float level, Chad. Then put the preformed back in place(leveled with thinset), wait a few days, and waterproof it all.

Easy to keep the outside edges level, just rest the level on the 2x4. If your level is longer than pan it still fits.

I said level too many times in this post, sorry.

I think it looks fine .:tup2:

Matt, what width Kerdi-band are you going to use in the corner? How do you cover those tabs & Kerdi band? I've been hitting all the tabs with Urethane sealant like Kerdi-Fix/Wedi sealant, then when dry Kerdi-banding with 5." Just barely covers the tabs, but with the Urethane over 'em, I'm hoping I'm good. Whadddayooodo?

Here is the job we are on right now. The 4x4's on tub deck and walls are the absolute worst slate I have ever worked with (in fact the finished product may end up in the worst tile job ever thread :fim:) but the 12x12's on the floor are the best slate I have ever worked with. I could have gotten away with 1/8" maybe even 1/16" grout joints and eveything woulda still lined up and very minimal lippage. The 4x4's are a completely different story. We spent 8 hours today putting the bottom course on and getting the 20 ish ft. set shown in the picture.

Also with the 4x4's I have to make all the grout joints flow - from the tub deck around the corner into the shower, making it where I can't center the tile on any wall of the shower. I finally got it layed out where we have decent cuts most eeverywhere except I will have a 7/8" sliver at the bottom of the window. Guess that makes me a hack too huh Jack :lol2:

After my helper got done cutting and stoning 140+ pieces for our deco I let him know he will have a little over 400 4x4's to polish:whip:

I'm sure if you promise to pay him $1 a piece he will cheer right up.

Looks good.

This is my progress on the skinny seat shower. Grouted today but didn't get any good shots.

whenever I lay out a subway job and I don't like the small cuts of a centered tile/grout joint. (not much you can do)
I will do a 1/4 offset to move it and it usually works out best.

first pic shows small cuts in corner you will get with a centered joint/tile.

second pic
shows the 1/4 offset to make for better cuts.
