Thanks Davy. This is not a kitchen though, it is a tub/shower combo and it's in a rental property so I don't have any control over whether tenant takes proper care, I can only hit the security...

OK...do I just have to go with the Polyblend unsanded grout powder that you mix, then, for this job?

Pre-mixed stain resistant grouts are bad idea for this application?

Does the flexcolor CQ have a "smooth" look when applied, like Davy was talking about, or is it gritty looking? I've been looking for photos on the web but it's hard to tell from an online photo.

I'm going to do research on Flexcolor to see if it's a good choice for this project. The idea of something being pre-mixed is...

I thought there were some advantages to using sanded grout? More adhesion?

I thought I remembered reading that on here although maybe I'm mistaken.

I am thinking of using Custom Prism grout for this. I will be using white grout because I've made some minor errors on the tiling and want them to blend in instead of stick out.

As I have been combing the thinset with the trowel, the ridges haven't been very solid, and sometimes they start to collapse if they sit there for couple minutes. I have been back...

I don't live at the the house, it's going to be tenant occupied. It sounds like a bad idea to use this shelf if it could be easily dislodged. It sounds like custom cutting a shelf or installing one...

hey cx...i have only dry-fitted it but yeah it seems to be supported on the tile edges below all the way around, but just barely makes it at the point where the gap is widest, if that makes sense

thanks Jeff...beautiful shower!

I would rather put the accent strip in as I go rather than leaving the gap and put it in at the end, as that would eliminate the need for the ledger board.

Thanks Dan.

If you cut them as you go does that mean you have to do very small groupings of rows at a time, since the thinset seems to set up quickly once it's applied to the wall?

Question: Is it a good idea to pre-cut your tiles that will go in the inside corners (one wall at a time)? Or is it better to cut a single piece each time as you go along, per row? Thanks.
