Hey JBFers,

I will posting pics pretty soon of my shower and stuff. Coming along pretty good with everything going on...demo, plumbers, electricians, he said, she said...

Anyway, did the Gueuzemasters trick on the kerdi drain. Wasn't able to find fabric like gueuze, but just happen to have a really helpful Schluter dealer. So, you can only guess the rest of the story.

More later...

Did I F-up?

Hey with all the going on in my project, I didn't mix enough ditraset for my kerdi. Problem...I realized it after covering about 60% of my shower floor (Deck-Mud)!

Well, it was getting late, so I just troweled the excess up and wiped it down good with a sponge (not too wet - rung out pretty good) to come back in the a.m.

Am in for trouble..will I be okay going back over that "skim-coat" of ditraset?

I did get my kerdi drain cleaned well.

Hi Joey. Yeah, thinset will stick to thinset. Just overlap the new Kerdi a couple inches.

Thanks Davy! I figured it would, but I am a novice in the tile world. Ain't afraid of asking when I am not sure.

I haven't read this thread at all, but for what its worth, I have built several shower pans for home owners wanting to do their own tile. Can't say that I've built one for another installer though.

Well, I've already texted Gueuze about this but,...today I asked the tile layer if Renee (my boss/homeowner who is a really neat chick other than was swayed by someone else to let this guy do her tile ) had told him how he wanted the shower-shelves (in the corners). He said "no...well, she mentioned it back when, but has said nothing more about it." I immediately texted her so she could get up with him b4 he got to far.

His solution was to cut a hole in my wall (especially after I had asked her repeatedly if she wanted niches, and she insisted on corner-shelves). Well, she asked how long it would take to cut a T-shaped hole that was 2 - 12" tiles across the top with a singe 12"" in the middle on the bottom (in a brick pattern). I said a little over a day.

Anyway, back when she insisted on shelves, I told her she needed marble, but she wanted slate. Well, the end result is she has 4 marble corner-shelves b/c it would take me too long for the tile layer to wait. I designed them, and he cut them. He did a nice job cutting.

You know, he was finishing up an ideal corner for more shelves (under one of the outlets), but instead of waiting 45' for her to show up, he kept on trucking.

Oh well, just venting.

I'm still gonna provide kerdi pics when I am not so tired.

Okay, its been long enough. Time for more pictures now that I am through with my kerdi install.

A picture of shower and drop-in-jacuzzi transition area. Also, you will notice gussets I installed to reinforce 48" high bulkheads. I removed the facing off the insulation before hanging Duroc to prevent a moisture 'sandwich.' My plumber does neat work I think.

More coming...

Oops...forgot to rotate
