Several hundred feet of 12" porcelain on the floor, several hundred feet of wainscot in the restrooms, a few hundred feet of VCT back-of-the-house, then there is that damned thin brick. What ever happened to a plain simple straight-forward job?

It's an all or nothin' quote.

Nope I'll figure it out but thanks anyway. In fact the proposal is finished and I'm going to bed.

I do want to thank you guys for your help while I can still get in here though, so...

THANKS I appreciate it.

Tell me about the medal gauges?

I racked my brain for a week trying to figure out a faster way to install that stuff without screwing it up...I wanna know what the medal gauges are.

I read something on thinbrick cladding that CTIO did some time ago. I think it was one of there field reports. I've done some facade cladding with the stuff, but I didn't get no metal ground strips. We sealed real good and grouted with a float in about the same time as tile. Went through a few more sponges though. Used Satillo grout for the verticals since the lines were 1/2".

Hmmm What did you use for grout??
This brick work was done with a 4-1 masons silica mix.

Saltillo grout. Customs makes it in white & nat grey, we usually use sand mix 4:1 but this was a small vertical area and I wanted something a little sticky ,it worked great.
