Mike,
I appreciate the quick reply. I apologize for leaving out one fact - I'll be using the Pro-Slope by Noble company. I realize that you pros aren't that fond of a pre-made product like this,...

thanks for the compliments. I have to admit though, the different sized tiles was more happenstance than planned. The designer that my wife & I were working with (that's past tense) convinced us to...

Mike,
I used TEC Max-Bond for my pro-forme niche. Just be careful that whatever you get is safe to use on the type of foam that the niche is made out of. I can't remember off the top of my head.

Thanks for your input, it's always good to get another reference point. I'll probably stay with 1/8" grout lines on the 3" tiles. Also, the 3" tiles mesh backing is paper, but I'm guessing that...

Davy,
Thanks for the quick reply. If I pull them off, does it matter if the backing material is still attached to the back of the tiles. I'd think not as it would've been there anyway if I put up...

Tim,
Very nice work. Any words of wisdom on building your own mirror frame. It seems I'll have to also do it myself as I can't seem to find what I want.

Thanks,

Troy,
I had a Bosch Rotozip & with the cement blade on it cut through the cbu like butter. The downside side is that it creates a tremendously amount of dust. I had to wear a mask, clean up after...

I'm a dyi'er like yourself and I've just installed my first Proform Niche. It lined up perfectly flush with the 1/2" Wonderboard I used. Just curious - any reason why you're set on Hardie...

Jeff,
You're right about not sawing the asbestos. What I did was cut the tile with a utility knife, peel it back a bit, cut the subfloor directly & used a prybar to pull up the subfloor (it was...
