Ron's (Toronto Tile Guy) Tile Job

Recently Ron H. sent me a bunch of pictures he took of some of his work. I'm going to put one or two in the album, but though I'd like to stick one or two up here, too.

Ron is a painstaking mechanic. This job is done over Ditra. The steps are mudded. Notice the layout around the stair well.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the spacer issue. Hope none of 'em pop up through the grout, eh?

Where's the insulted and teary smilie? I've never ever used a spacer.That other picture with the Ditra showed only a glob of thinset in the shape of a cross.I already told Bri that I should have mailed you the picture that included a glob of pookie in the shape of Elvis' head instead.

Hey,first time I used the word "pookie" as learnt to me by John Bridge.

I think Ron's new handle should be Toronto Tile Guy Extraordinare. Most impressive...even with the spacers.

Thanks.

I wish I had a picture of the stainless steel stair tread mouldings from Schluter.They are really nice.I couldn't center the field tile with the staircase because of the layout in the kitchen and dining room where the island is centered.Normally I like to have such a feature laid out so that it is balanced.

It's a beautiful porcelain tile from Unicom-Starker called Esterel,from Italy.Nice and smooth with a slight waviness on the surface.

I'll give Unicom-Starker a plug. It's great tile. They manage to keep it sized well even though it's pretty hard bodied.
