Wrapped up this shower today, tore it out about 2 or 3 months ago after it leaked into the garage below. Poor construction by the GC, plain sheetrock on the walls. Liner had nails through it on the curbtop. Gave the homeowner the shower they should have had when they got the keys to their new home but as the story goes, with the GC just get it done. No insulation in some cavities on outside wall. We did not replace the floor in the bathroom at this time but it is on plywood. Replaced tiles with cracks due to location at plywood seams. Poor construction, we made it right. We will replace the floor eventually too when the customer is ready.

Jon that looks super awesome!! Where are the inspectors, letting stuff like this pass? This blows my small mind.

900 sq ft of Arto Cement tile. Luckily I am working for a large contractor who understands I underestimated the job. Humbled admittedly. I will walk away with new knowledge of how to approach this type of job. Arto specifies their tile to be set with 254 platinum. It can be sealed with impregnator afterwards, but It's advisable to seal it first. They do not require this step though. Some additions to the job were added, like floating up the concrete to reduce the pitch on the double step patio area to 1/4" per foot.

After bidding the job, which was originally 12x12,- 16x16 showed up. So, some changes were necessary. I'm used to working with porcelain and ceramic, glass and other decently sized tiles. Considering the variance in tile size, thickness and color, this has been a test of my ability to accept that it is simply the look and my work is proper. I feel like a new chapter has been roughly chiseled into my experience. Ready for the next.

who makes the little green things?

I saw a demonstration for the Ramondi level system and I asked if the tiles could be pulled up, essentially breaking the bond of mud and create a void. He said "No, no up, only push down".

Hmm, physics must not apply.

The green system you are thinking of is most likely the MLT system. Its a very well designed product.

Always nice to see your work Jack. Sorry it was a tough one, looks nice, and sunny...14 here. Nice that the contractor understands, we are our own worst critic though. Learn and move on.

Great work as always, guys!

Sorry to hear you took a bath on that Jack. I'm doing the same on some linear drains right now. That darned tile school tuition can been pricey sometimes! We all go there one time or another though. It looks great though.

Those planks look awesome, Brian! What size grout joint is that?

Awesome shower, JonDon. Just remember, if the builders did everything right, we'd be out of work.

Grouted the main area today on the Clearwater, Florida condo project.
Have to set a foyer & small hall rest of week and then we are done.

Tile was Cerdomus "Over" Sienna 8x40 "wood look" plank tile.
Grout was Laticrete #30 Sand Beige and the tile was set on 1/4" cork.
