Trippy!

I know it wasn't really the focal point here but I like how you did the floor. Is that common in Kiwi land or is that just a signature of yours?

pretty common here, the room origionaly had a fiberglass shower unit that was removed, the concrete slab was cut out and the drain lowered so it was 20mm below the existing slab height, the shower area was then plastered using Mapeicem (instead of cement as it doesnt take 28 days before you can waterproof over it as it dehydrates fast) with falls into the drain, the whole area was waterproofed with Aquadefence then tiled. We dont have kerdi here or much else in the way of sheet membranes so 99.9% of waterproofing is done here with surface membranes. we use a drain here called a "allproof" tile waste that allows us to waterproof into the drain. If you have a look through my pics there are lots of level entry shower floors, regarding set out i always set the floor out starting from the centre of the shower drain

As global as Schluter is, I can't believe they're leaving out NZ. I realize distribution's a pain with you guys being pretty isolated, but it seems like that's still a pretty good opportunity for them to be ignoring.

Better get after that Birdie at Schluter, JB!

As much as Schluter has grown in North America (and in Europe) it's still a fairly small company as compared to Mapei and, say, Laticrete, which has been in Australia for quite a while. Smart companies do not expand beyond their capabilities. Schluter is smart.

Interesting. I'll be honest, as a lowly trowel and bucket guy, I don't have much of a grasp on the whole global marketing thing and all that. As an armchair quarterback, it just seems like a missed opportunity for the orange.

Not to derail Jim's thread, but is Schluter strictly North America and Europe then?
