Grout question: I have a bag of grout that needs to be mixed. Is it ok to mix a little at a time or should I mix the entire bag at once so the color will be consistent? I'm afraid if I mix the entire bag it will dry before I can use it. I know I will be slow and take my time applying the grout. Thanks!

Dry mix the powder to be consistent. Then use as much powder as you want.

Have you read the grouting tutorial some nice guy wrote?

Houston, should I dump the entire bag in a bucket and dry mix it, then use another bucket to mix what I need?

Still have some cleaning up to do and the grout needs to set for at least 24 hrs, but it is done.

Shower Door Recommendation

Anyone have a recommendation for a nice shower door? I need one that is adjustable because my opening is not perfectly plumb (about 1/4" difference). My opening is right at 30". I looked at all the big box stores but haven't really seen anything I like. Not sure what the pros use or recommend.

Thanks!

I found it best to let a glass company handle that part of the project. The cost of the doors are not that much until you get into the frameless doors, and considering they do the installation for you, I couldn't find that I'd save much at all by buying one and installing it myself, particularly if a wall is out of plumb. They have expander jambs to take care of that problem.
