I was thinking the same thing-that's some of the cleanest installation that I've ever seen! I try to keep things as clean as possible but I always end up with thinset on top of the tile somewhere.

Nice work

I like the contrasting tiles, and the steam option when doing my morning business.

Rich, I agree nice job on that floor. I like the look of those planks vs one solid color

Just gone done with the largest shower I have ever done. The shower was previously done by a subs through the GC working this job. They took two bathrooms and made it into one big one. All the same tile was used... previous sub took a week, took me 3 weeks.

Same exact shower done twice. Even though it was improved 100% she was still being picky about a little bit a lippage. Told her lippage is not illegal and and going from 3/16" joints 33% offset to 1/16" joints with 50% offset....... anyway good to be done and away from this picky ungrateful customer. Job went good, glad to put this one in the rear view mirror.

First Hydro Ban Board shower, floor register vent right at the curb so we offered up the Chameleon, different grout color used and epoxy vs sanded, marble accents vs all tile and spliced corian on previous curbtop. They fell short at ceiling 1/2" on right ceiling is off. Saw tile in dumpster, nothing in the whole job was backbutterd, the tiles were clean off the floor and same once pulled off the foam board on the walls. I centered drain and moved pex line out of the floor to to the wall cavity.

That is a huge difference, the same grout color made it look awesome. Night and day difference. I like the shelf vs box, the vent is A+. Centering the drain so they are not standing on it, awesome.

Haven't been around lately

Well, I'm really liking the photos that have been put up in this thread.
True Professionals, the lot of you.


I haven't done any tile work lately till I had this job pop up of putting in a full shower bathroom in the basement of a 1905-built rental house we own.
You've heard of "shoestring" budgets? Well I did this on a dental floss budget.
Everything in the photos I did with SCRAP I had laying around (yes, even the Kohler Veil and Toto wall toilet, Gerber sink and Memoirs faucet were "leftovers"),
The only things I had to buy were the DalTile "Mustard" tile as salvage at $0.25 per sq.ft. the glass block, the shower panel from Amazon Warehouse deals for $70.00 and the waterproofing fleece for the shower.
I have less than $1K in the entire job.

I also have to say that I'm loving wall hung toilets, I do retrofit work, and they make life so much easier.

Not too shabby for a windowless basement bathroom, eh?
