With slate, I...

I don't see a problem with the glass being on the edge of the tiles. I see the concern about the tile breaking when drilling for the clips. I would want the glass fairly close to the edge and if...

Lou, I figured watching Jack handle the mud would help you out.

I mudded a wall yesterday that was extra thick due to it being out of plumb. Plus, the back wall wasn't parallel with the sheetrock on the outside of the shower. So the left stick had more mud behind...

Yep, I've used a piece of lath many times but use a rake these days.

No rub stone on the scratch coat. If you have any spots that stick way out, knock them off tomorrow with a margin trowel. The...

Lath is unpredictable. Sometimes the snags that hurt the most won't hardly bleed. The next time you'll have blood everywhere and not know where it's coming from. :)

Yes, but those two examples that we mentioned have very high traffic areas. I'm sure it happens but I've never seen that problem in a home.

Soap film eventually builds up if the shower isn't kept clean. The mold likes to get started in the soap build up.

I've used them all many times and the Prism is what I'd use. Just make small batches because it's considered a fast setting grout. It's probably the easiest grout I've ever used.
