Still my opinion, Ian, that if removing/replacing the tile isn't an option then filling that gap with an epoxy grout would be best. Filling the gap with backer rod first wouldn't hurt. I believe...

The 1/4" SN trowel will be fine for those 2" X 2" X 3/8" tiles, Mike, is what I used when setting my very similarly sized shower floor tile. Combing the mortar in one direction isn't as critical with...

Ah, tiling the ceiling also. If I'm looking at it right it appears the give you mentioned is between the 16" OC rafters. Since you'll be taping and mortaring those wall to ceiling joints I think...

I was focusing only on the pony wall, William, but as CX points out the curb is likely of greater concern.

Any idea how the curb was water proofed?

Let's make some guesses; say the tile is 3/8" thick, and the mortar under the tile is 1/4". The tab of the bracket that the screw goes through is probably about 1/4" thick, but the hole is recessed,...

I can't really tell what I'm looking at there, William, but yes - in my opinion the bottom of the clips should be bedded in silicone. Otherwise, you're relying on a very thin line of silicon where...

Welcome, William,

Yes, that type of install is fairly typical, and makes visual sense for the glass panels to align with the grout joints. It is also easier for the installer to drill into grout...

As a DIY'er, Mike, I've used Spectralock Pro Premium epoxy grout in 3 bathrooms, with much of it crammed into 1/16" joints. As Jim noted you can "thin" the grout a bit by leaving out up to 10% of...

It seems to me, Brad, that if you are going to set it in mortar then the strips/runners are almost irrelevant.

When you place the tub in the alcove and level it, are you saying you have 3/8th" gap...
