Day of the Dead Altar... solution...?

Dear Tile Guys and Gals,

That is my...

Day of the Dead Project

Thanks for the suggestion. What would you use to glue the tiles to the foam board before grouting? I have a 4X8 piece of styrofoam that I salvaged. It was used for insulation. Is this something I...

I do not think I would use SpectraLock on 1/16th inch wall joints again (the ceiling was no fun either). We could...

I was reading a recent post entitled "A bit of advice please" and it made me wonder if we had taped our CBU correctly in the shower.

Ooooo love that Spectralock
