Diagonal Flemish Bond

Any of you guys done one? Doing a shower for a client, proposal was for a straight Flemish bond, the day I started she changed her mind ... odd, I know, lol .. anyway, what's a reasonable up-charge for diagonal?

I've got double the time in it so far and only 3/4's done sticking the walls ..

I appreciate any input.

Interesting pattern ....I think this type of installation -- brick work -- is used for structural walls , where one or two walls are tied behind it .

You're correct, I wrapped the pattern around all 4 walls, it's pretty difficult to see it in the small space of this shower, I did a scale mockup before starting it to show her, but she wanted it anyway.

It'd look much better on a larger surface where you could actually see the pattern ..

And thanks for fixing the image ..

Now we can see what the pattern looks like
Couldn't figure it out why 3 rows follow the patern , then 3 are different .

I had 60 hours in just the walls, if I ever duplicate this, It'll be about double of what I charged her. 4 gallons of acrylic grout in there ..

I ended up hand laying each pebble, that was fun.

I always lay all my pebbles individually. IMO it's the only way to keep the sheets from ghosting through. It's a really sharp looking shower, I just don't see why this would have taken any longer than the usual 1/3 offset. I mean the number of cuts is the same, so why would you charge more?

Like the ceiling a lot -- pattern -- , but missing one black dot .

Could've do some pattern with the shower floor -- looks like part flower like around the drain -- , similar as concept as the ceiling.

The tiled flemish bond needs a wider joint to look like it


More comments needed ....lol
