Sal- I totally agree with you. My wife does not. She likes and thinks it looks great. I try to stand between me and the shower so I do not see it in the mirror.

Finished my big shower today. Yippee!!!:yipee: This goes with the small 600 sf bathroom project. Has a his side/her side and entrances from each into the shower. Shower was close to 300 sf on the walls and ceiling. Talk about cuts, only 12 pieces (30 sf) came out of the box and went onto the wall with no cuts. Homeowner loves it, builder loves and architect likes it and dropped of plans for another project he would like a bid on. First is from his side and second is from her side. Picks were taken just before grouting.

Is it weird bench week?

The job I am on the contractor had that bench we have been using it. I like it so much it was on sale at depot for 40 bucks so I got one. Its great you can stand on it and put your thinset on it when doing ceiling work. Weird bench week...

Thanks guys. Appreciate the nice words. He owner stood in it today and commented that the archotect got a little carried away with theshower size:suspect: She says it sure is big once you stand inside of the shower.

Ed- the stone is statuary vein.

wrapping up a 1900 feet glue down wood floor. have about 280 feet left will have to wait till i get back form south carolina

johntrent 10-02-2009 07:13 PM

Chuck - see if she can help you clean the lense also :D Just kidding - I say that because I also get that problem some times even though I cleaned the lense - not sure what causes it:scratch: Nice jobs - is that a tumbled stone border also?

Brian - looks good except your missing tiles on the floor :D

Dan - looks good - you can't throw that 280 ft in tonight before you leave? :)

Mountain Tile 10-02-2009 07:17 PM

Thanks John, I went back to recaulk that one and prolly dripping water on my hands and camera. Not too good at taking pics, but I'm working on it.

opiethetileman 10-02-2009 07:19 PM

I threw it in. rite next to the wall in boxes stacked up. I actually was shocked today the homeowner let me take it easy today so I just cleaned the floor and papered it. set a few toliets and had a easy day. dont get to many of them

Dan - gotta have one every once in awhile.

Chuck - I like the clipped corner at the top of the shower - never seen that I don't think - that was intentional right? Got any other pics of it?

Chuck- I can see those style corners becoming popular in Ky.

At least if I can have anything to do about it.:D I like that style. Clean and different. Kinda like a signature piece. My Father taught me to use a key in my fireplace. Cool way to eliminate small cuts on the header.

Mountain Tile 10-02-2009 08:38 PM

Thanks Greg.

dhagin 10-02-2009 08:40 PM

That IS a good look on those corners Chuck. I never did like miters. May have to borrow that one.:D

ceramictec 10-02-2009 08:55 PM

we had to rip out some like that in a development after my one installer did them that way. the builder said they didn't go with the lines and they wanted them out and to be mitered.
I haven't done them since back then like that.

John K 10-03-2009 04:47 AM


Where do you keep finding people wanting simple showers( straight lay , simple deco)?;)

ceramictec 10-03-2009 05:40 AM

its all the remodels of basic showers in all the homes here in Florida built during the boom and prior without proper waterproofing. there's going to be years and years of ripping out showers here with mold and water damage.
I guess they spend the money in schluter kerdi, hydroban or redgard waterproofing rather then a fancy pattern. :D

Oh no, he didn't! Oh yes, he did. Shame on you, CBP. I give this stuff six months.

More from last project, playing with the macro setting a little.

My bomb shelter-3.4 lath, scratch,brown, Hydroban, 254, Specktralock/Latisil. First mud job in a few years, struggled with the window jambs. Other than that it all came right back. Without a helper doing mud just sucks.

gueuzeman 10-03-2009 07:42 AM



Nice bathroom, what's the floor? looks like polished concrete.

6 months you give the sticky mat? But the spectralock will hold it in place. :D


silvercitytile 10-03-2009 08:02 AM

looks like dura-ceramic. plastic tile or vinal

madronatile 10-03-2009 08:03 AM

Six months till they yank it off the shelves! Floor is some Dal porcelain, 13x20, Titanium is the color. Floor nice and flat thanks to Mick!

tileguynky 10-03-2009 08:10 AM

Matt, all that glass looks good. :tup2:

MICK1 10-03-2009 09:44 AM

I ran out tile and waiting for the 1x1 glass to come in for the feature strip. It should look good when its all done. And the home owner came up with the design

ceramictec 10-03-2009 12:19 PM


how do you get your level on there to check your line with all those caps there?
or is that the purpose, to distract. :)

custombuilt 10-03-2009 12:33 PM

with all the tuscan I almost didn't notice the change in pattern on the sie of your insert strip. I want to see that one when its done!

Also bruce, since you're waiting on tile and all, you should swing over here and ride down to Schluterland with me tomorrow!
