Thanks Chuck. It's been a while since I've worked with Sicis. Beautiful tile and easy to work with.
One detail that I overlooked tho, the sheets are anywhere from 1/16-1/8" longer in one direction than the other. I thought I checked at the beginning but somehow missed it. I gridded the pool out to the longer dimension of 11 5/8" per sheet. Made for a lot of aggravating adjusting. The radius(s) in the spa were easier in that respect. We installed the tile in the spa in 2 days, short of the cuts which took another 3.

Yeah Brian. We're in for a good 6 months of it. I have a pool in Boca Grande late this summer. Not looking forward to the heat. Thinking of building an insulated structure over it but with lumber prices today..... It would keep the early morning no-seeums out too. Those pesky little things are annoying.

Lmao!! size matters even when it’s a nats-ass, eh???

Truly marvelous work Jerry, don’t know how you manage the heat. Tent set up with insulation & ventilation sure sounds like a good way to be

Crazy drain detail, must be a PITA. Looks very clean though

I did some pool work this week also

I pumped out that water and Jack hammered a bunch of holes in the bottom of the pool. I got rained out yesterday and today hopefully I can get that thing wrapped up next week

I can't believe no one has posted here since June. I love seeing what gets done out there.
I have been working on this Hydro-Floor pool. Should be done in a week or so, for now anyway. Once the floating floor is installed I will need to go back and tile the stair risers and moving wall. Lotsa fun. All the tile adhered to the stainless needs to be "grouted" with Laticrete Latasil. I'll take some pics then, underneath the floor.

Jerry, break that down a little for some of the old guys, not me. I don't know what a hydro-floor does.

The pool is 11 feet deep. Walls perfectly plumb. After I install the tile on the walls and floor, a crew comes in and installs a stainless frame and floor which is basically suspended and helfd in place till the constaruction is finished. There is a stone floor attached to the top surface, and flotation attached to the bottom. A hydraulic ram underneath is attached to cables thru pulleys which pull the floor down to the 8' deep level.

It's really a simple operation, although complex in it's own way. The opening around the perimeter is only 5/16" for the water to come thru as the floor moves down. It takes around 8 minutes or so.

I'll take some pics from underneath when it's close to being finished.

Fixer-upper purchased in March

Hi all! I'm new to the forum, and figured I'd share my bathroom work-in-progress.

Since the house needed to be jacked up to repair/replace rotted subfloor, joists, sill plate, and rim joists, I had to make up for that budget allocation by doing the bathroom and kitchen myself.

What initially seemed like a frightening ordeal turned into a lot of confidence after learning about tiling, plumbing, electrical, and I'm probably just skimming the surface.

I decided to go with GoBoard, due to ease of cutting, handling, and installation. I plumbed the studs as best as I could to 1/6". Fearing possible deflection because it's foam, I added a bunch of blocking to some of the seams, especially in areas where one can lose their balance and bump into a wall. I added 2x8 blocking using HeadLOK screws to install grab bars for my disabled in-laws.

My contractor installed the plumbing for the shower, but I noticed a few flaws—the shower head drop ear was right above my forehead, so with a rainfall showerhead, I'd have to duck. 2nd, there was liberal use of Sharkbite push fittings—I know, I know.. there's a lot of controversy about this. I'm sure it's a sound and stable connection, but for me, I needed the peace of mind with crimped connections. 3rd, there were crimps that were either butted up or way too far from the fittings, so after learning about everything pex, I redid it using copper rings with 3/16" space from the fittings and checked using the go-no-go gauge. And because of paranoia, I designed it so that everything can be accessed from the opposite wall—all screws on the blocking that held the drop ears and mixing valves are driven in from the top and bottom—none are screwed in from the bath side. I did my due diligence and had a plumber green-light my work before installing the GoBoard.
