Thanks, So that I got you right, I should skip the epoxy grout? I’ll run the search in the morning to learn more.
Enclosure will be likely 3/8 glass inline with extension for the bench and door, or inline with panel for the bench and barn door style slider door one side fixed.

Almost certainly, you wouldn't want the resin from the epoxy leaching through the sides of the marble. If it does, and it stains the stone, it will be permanent. Epoxy will also slow the rate of evaporation of the water moisture that the stone tile will, definitely, absorb.

If you were working with a low absorption and glazed porcelain tile I'd go with (and did) the epoxy grout due to its water proof properties.

For the curb there's no reason you can't join those two pieces with a, or multiple, 1/16th joints. But you might consider visiting a local stone shop to see if they have a left over piece of marble that they can fabricate to the dimensions you need.

Welp, I have grouted my backsplash and niche over the wall mount toilet. Preparing to seal the shower and floor. My question involves grouting larger marble pieces. I’m no expert by any means but why when I watch videos on grouting why do I see them putting the grout all over the place vs just targeting the grout lines themselves? It this for ease of just getting large amounts of grout to push into the grout lines? Seems it’s a lot more to clean off when they put grout on an entire 12x24 pieces of tile. Thanks for advice.

It's done for ease and speed, Cris. You want to spread the grout at an angle to the grout lines anyway, and with a standard size grout float you're going to get grout on a lot of the tile. Careful work with the float won't leave much on the tile.

That said, when I grouted my 12X24's with epoxy I kept close to the grout lines and mostly used the short side of the float. In my limited experience the epoxy doesn't spread like regular grout, I had to really force it into the joints.

on the wall hung toilet.

Welp, I’m about done. I got a quote for shower glass and it just seemed ridiculously high @ $4K installed. I decided to just do it myself. My total $1550. Just waiting for the last piece of glass. Thanks for all the help, this forum is the best.

Wow, turned out really nice, Cris, well done. Mrs. Cris has great taste!

Wall mounted toilets are the bomb.

Thanks Dan, my girls are happy as the embarrassing bathroom is gone!! Now I remodeling the dining room, lots of plaster repair and 100+ years of hack jobs. Currently I took a detour to urgent care as my finger got in the way of the carpet blade. I glued it back together but I need stitches. Not sure what they’re doing back there as I’m the only one here. Been here 1.5 hrs. Gal asked is it actively bleeding. I replied, I dunno, might have bled out by now. Lol.

Looks Good!

Is that a tile floor register?

Ha, I bleed on every single remodeling job I do, sometimes a lot.

I think there's still blood on the bottom plate of my hand-held electric planer. That thing has tried to kill me twice.

Chad, yes the floor register has individually cut pieces to match the floor.

This morning I had a medical chart email which said Test Results. I didn’t have any tests so I opened it…Good grief I guess they document everything…
