If you already have the shower floor installed, no need for a ledger board. Start at the bottom and start tiling.

Hi Patrick, I guess the concrete could slowly erode enough to create a little dust. I could be wrong but I think that your tires are bringing in most of it. And, when it rains, the water your tires...

If you're wanting full tiles at the ceiling, lay out enough tiles on the floor with spacers added, then get a measurement of that distance. If the ceiling is not level, figure from the highest point,...

First, I apply strips of mud and set two short screed sticks for the back. Measure the sticks to the mudded wall, top and bottom to make sure they are parallel. After mudding the back, you can mud...

I found a pic of a penny round bath we did last year. I spent more time getting the walls and floor as flat as possible than I did setting the tiles. I like to set the sheets against a straight edge...

Yep, about the Ditra having a 2x2 minimum. The penny round tiles are tough to install. Seems like the middle tiles in the sheet gets plenty support from the netting and the edge pieces tend to...

Cute little dog but I'll pass. I think Cx is looking for a dog.

It might be worth making a sample board using scrap tiles. Grout and seal them.

Hi Dani, I think the sealer interfering with the bond was when someone mentioned dipping the whole tile in the sealer. That won't happen if only the tops of the tiles are sealed.

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...

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...

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. :)
