Yep, not living right.:D Actually, I posted here in this thread before checking what we had received. I was thinking we got 4-5 inches. Nope, just 2 1/2. I'll do my homework first next time. :)

Your first pic shows a lot of soap and hair. Take the grate off every few months and scrape it all down and clean it out. I was told by a plumber years ago that if the riser pipe is left rough where...

99% of the time sanded grout doesn't scratch marble. Do a test area if you are wondering. 1/8 joints with unsanded grout could cause problems.

I normally have some Acetone handy when using silicone. You shouldn't have to hold their hand like you're doing.

You're installing 6x24 tiles. Will the long side of the tiles run parallel with that wall or the short side? If it's the short side, it probably won't be noticeable.

You didn't really ask about the pattern. Some guys run the offset kinda weird. They offset the second row 1/3 from the first row then set the third row back inline with the first row. To me, a true...

I tile my curb before my shower floor but that's up to you.
