Stone issue

Hey guys,

You guys are always giving great advice and I am finding myself needing some. I am going to be laying a stone floor this week. Problem is the slab was not poured to accept a mudbed. I need advice on how I should lay it and with what materials? Everyone around here(southeast ga) lays travertine and I havent seen the first installer who lays it using a mudbed. They all just lay it and then smooth the edges with machines and then follow it uo with sanding and so on and so forth. This drives me nuts as the first job I helped on when I started doing this 6 yrs ago was 2000 sf of travertine and it was mudset. I was taught proper technique but am unable to use it here. Any advice would be awesome.

Thanks and God bless you all,

Hi Wes, are you saying you know how to install travertine using a mud bed but you don't know how to install it with thinset? If it's a thinset install,I would use Marble and granite thinset so you can build up when it's needed.
