Yeah, but them is them little bitty dollars, Andrea. :)

I've never purchased 7/16ths" glass, but I know the price difference between 3/8ths" and 1/2" tempered glass in my area is dramatic.

I...

Are you talking about framed or unframed glass panels, Andrea? I've never installed or contracted for any unframed glass for shower enclosures that was thinner than 3/8ths-inch.

I wouldn't likely bother priming the part to be tiled, but if you want to do that, I'd recommend a plain ol' PVA primer. You don't need anything at all on the face of the drywall for sure, but folks...

This is how you install the glass when the inside portion is tiled, Andrea. If you have a glass cup (or two), you can do this yourself. Helpful to have a friend to hold it in place while you tack...

Yeah, a bit ironic to be sure. But holes, hopefully well patched, on the vertical surfaces are usually not a problem. Hell, we been puttin' grat large holes in the walls for shower control valves...

I think you understand my method, Andrea. The glass is set on clear plastic "bumpers" directly on the waterproofing membrane. Those are available at the place from which you buy your glass. Come...

I would do both horizontal and vertical edges of the glass using that same method, Andrea. Like thissy here:

I generally finish the inside tile, set the glass, then finish the outside...

Andrea, in situations like that I favor having the grout joint down the center of the wall and setting my fixed glass down into that joint. No hardware or fasteners of any kind.

My opinion; worth...

Then you should have no scheduling problem with either the cabinet lady or the tile lady and you'll lose no time regardless the order you decide the work should take. I'd tile first. After, of...

I'm not really much of a carpet guy, Andrea. If Shawn thinks 3/8ths" will work, I certainly won't argue.

Were I to do your tile and cabinet work (I'm always the trim/cabinet man on my jobs), I'd...

Shawn has obviously done more carpet work than I, but 3/8ths" gap between tile and tack strips sounds a bit wide to me. Perhaps he's judging by the type of carpet he sees in your photos?

Andrea, if you don't add that location to your User Profile the information will be lost before we leave this page. And it's frequently helpful in responding to some types of questions. :)

Is that why the pewt that big ol' comfortable knob on the front there, Shawn? :)

Perhaps Shawn can weigh in on the tack strips, since he's apparently better versed in things carpet than am I. My...

Ah, now I understand. Maybe. I think. Didn't really want you installing either your carpet or your tile with that pookey. :)

Old carpet guy told me that putting some "Elmer's Glue" on the edge...

Welcome, Andrea. :)

It had long been my custom to tuck my carpet directly against the edge of my ceramic tile floor installations. Simple to do. Looks good to my eye.

If you plan to do the...
