Thanks all. Jon, the one thing the HO said is they didn't want a border in the shower as they wanted it to be different from others they had seen. Border inside is common here in PHX as well.

Shaughnn, wow...what patience you must have...and with your little helpers to boot.

Very nice work everyone.
Love the hole in the shelf. Always wanted to make a toothbrush holder for the sink but the holder in the shower is
Wires for mosaics is brilliant,
Marge I would be thrilled with the work you have done. It’s nice when a customer has trust in your work, Your work is worthy of that trust.

Marge, I was talking about outside the shower not inside. In the picture I was referring to, it terminates in the corner outside the shower and does not come across. I don't blame them for wanting it different than what everyone else has. You were creative and it turned out really unique and classy. The project looks great. I want to see their reaction when they walk in the door. Hide in the shower with your camera. Post some "reaction" shots

Brian, just saw the shower with the sprayer unit, never seen one like that. Very impressive the whole shower install!

I'd put the Kritter Kam in there but the Diva Elk killed it.

Marge, that is one sweet shower. Dont hear to many customers give carte blanche on design and materials. They should be very happy.

Brian, very nice as usual.

Shaughnn, how many hours you have in that floor? Sweet!

Dang Shaughnn, that's a lot of work. I was going to put mine together as we install it. It's mostly in 24 inch strips, the little black checkerboard will have to go in one at a time though.

Mark-shoulder better, thanks.

Here's a full house porcelain plank tile project we just completed in Tampa, Florida.

The porcelain planks were from Bedrosian's and pretty nice looking.
The color was "Cherry" (wood looking) with Laticrete #58 Terracotta PermaColor grout.
Manufacturer said to use a 3/16" but we set closer to 1/8" since they were flat.

This was the house where we just demo'd the real wood since it warped.
We also removed the carpet in bedrooms & old tile in the bathrooms & kitchen.

Brian that plank looks a lot like our 3/4 " cherry tongue and groove .

Impressive looking grout lines.
I've heard of gluing wood floors to concrete .
Never seemed like a good idea to me except in movie sets .

I've never worked on a slab home . If I get the chance I'm suggesting Porcelain Bendrosian cherry floors.

A lot of people in my area insist on T&G wood floors with the slightly eased edge.. It looks good for a while until DIRT TRAP
