Thank you Chuck. I thought about sloping my pan the wrong way like the last two jobs I lookes at, but sideways picture is as far as I go....my two foot level is having fun spinning on drain grates though.
That glass niche looks awesome. I am curious if there is a standard size on the smaller hole on these double niche or soap holders? The top part of my doubles are 16" now because crazy shampoo bottles. I try to think about my grout float, but anything over 5.5 seems too big.

New World Tile 12-23-2014 10:29 AM

Don for me the niche is determined most of the time by the size of the tile. I try to make them work into the layout when ever possible.

Respectful tradesmen...... Plumber/s had an issue with pressure equality,so in their infinite wisdom they had the showers running for well over 2 hours non-stop,and I'll assume they like playing in the mud,looking at their tracks.....and the drywallers will mud anything,including grouted showerpans.

Recent re-hab of 1150 feet of floor tile. HO had 12" white tile that she hated.

Broke it out manually, then rented a 300 lb grinder to flatten the floors and then replaced it with 18" porcelain and an entry insert.... (before)

Right before the wet saw broke down.... 4x12 glass tiles that will not snap by hand.

Bunch of nice work here.... Steve I like that feature mosaic piece in the floor I have always wanted to do one of those. Nice shower too.:)

Brad, that is an awesome fireplace renovation, love that material:wohoo:

Paul, I hope you got to finish:whip:

Currently finishing one up in Hummelstown PA, shower and jacuzzi finished just have to do the vanity splash yet tomorrow and grout it up Monday. This has been a fun project.

Lazarus 01-01-2015 09:47 AM

Thanks, Jon.... SWEET looking shower you have there! The river rock accent works really well (although I find those floors a tad uncomfortable).

jondon 01-02-2015 05:16 AM

Thanks Steve:) Originally when I first went to look at this project they had tiles from the big box stores picked out. 6" for the walls and an accent band. When I was there he asked where I get my tile and him and his wife ended up going to the distributor closest to him I use.

This is the third time I have used this tile now in the last 2 years on showers. Reason being, they have a display set up in the showroom and this sold the tile all three times. Funny how they went from using 6" tiles to 12X24's. She said they wanted them to get flat tile for the shower pan, they wanted pebbles. I can understand how they might be a little uncomfortable on the feet for some, I find them therapeutic.:)

Houston Remodeler 01-02-2015 12:34 PM

We are struggling at work today to say the least. For some odd reason, these 4x12 glass tiles will cut cross but not lengthwise. The waste pile is growing.

I should have ordered the Monolit CPV glass blade 6 months ago :bang:

Cain 01-02-2015 01:29 PM

I've had similar problems with some glass b4 Paul. It was when I was using the alpha glass blade. I did end up scoring the top and then nipping the pieces off. Finished with polish pads.
I have been using the lackmond glass blade ( thanks Nic) and since then no problems

nelsonkoehn 01-02-2015 05:10 PM

You using a Vitreo blade there, Paul? If not I've got one sitting here I could loan you for a few days. :rolleyes:

It's 'most new, cut just a smidge of glass.

Course I'll need it back soon. I've got my own glass tiles to be cutting shortly here! :whip:

Houston Remodeler 01-02-2015 06:51 PM

We figured out we were putting too much pressure on the blade. When we slid a piece of absolute black granite underneath the glass as we cut it worked out fine. Luckily there is plenty of spare tile:wohoo:

Nice showers Laz, Paul, and Jon. :tup1:

Laz what is the tile you used in the shower? Very nice carrera look.

And Jon I love that tile, looks like a high class hunting lodge. :)
What is the name of it?

Lazarus 01-03-2015 01:19 AM

Don't recall the brand...I'll try to ping the HO and ask. :)

Higher Standard Tile 01-03-2015 02:31 AM

Laz when you can, no rush on my part. :)

Lazarus 01-03-2015 03:56 PM

Isaac~ Spoke to the HO and the tile was from Dal. It was in the "Florentine" Series and he recalls it as a Carrera from China! (Go Figure!) :lol1:

Higher Standard Tile 01-04-2015 12:12 AM

Thanks Laz.

Thanks Isaac, high class hunting lodge... I like that:) This is the third time I have used this particular tile in a shower over the last 2 years. I really do like the look of it and very high quality. The edges are very unique not sure what you would call the effect. In each case we used a different color of granite.
In this current bathroom we used the 13X13 on the floor and 12X24 on the walls.

This tile is: Manufacturer: Mediterranea
Series: Essence
Color: Forest

This tile reminds me of rainsforest but no greens.

Yesterday in Hummelstown PA, grouted it up with Desert Khaki SpectraLock. We had to work around the window in the tub area and decided not to take the apron off and break the continuity. Instead we ran bullnose up under it since the field tile was raised up too much.

Complete with access panel.

Beautiful work, Jon......:neesie:
