Looks like a compression fitting to me, Jeff.

I think that's gonna cause you a certain amount of grief. The length of pipe is too short. It looks like they barely had enough length to use that...

CB, I'd think the layout of the space; where the door is, the tub, the vanity, toilet will really dictate the starting point. You can post a photo or two stored, on your local drive, here using the...

Hi John, we've merged your threads.

Yeah, some photos would be helpful, Dan.

If the glass tile has a coating on the back such that you can see no light through the tile then I would think concerns about being able to see thinset...

Looks good, Steve, the black is cool.
