Predictable, you say

So the floor was installed. I did a skimcoat of medium bed mortar (the HD stuff), Redgard, and then the slate tile.

Hello all,

I've posted here before, and you were very kind to give me advice regarding my botched shower job. Someday it will be fixed, I hope.

Oh, the rest of this 1906 house is doing more than enough breathing, believe me.

The reason I'm asking is I'm trying to decide whether to take a calculated risk and leave ONE interior shower...

Walls

Hello all,

I have some downtime during the search for the tile to replace the discontinued stuff -- thanks for warning me off NG.

Yes, agreed

Yes, it is. I love it. And it's garbage. A lot of it, anyway. Sob. Boo. Hoo.

Serious DRAG

So I was initially relieved by NG -- it was enough that I didn't have to argue about necessity of preslope. But I'm clearly in denial. I just truly didn't want to have to pay for this shower all...

So . . .

My GC just left with the guy he wants to do the reinstall. And I have to say I'm very relieved.

Hello all,
