Brian-sweet shower! must have been nice to get away from the wood plank for a sec.....not that i wouldnt LOVE to do a floor like that

Rod-Nice mud work! I just dealt with some $30/sqft 8"/16" limestone that were obviously 16's hacked in half, out of square and had major chingered edges. Had to do the same thing.

Laz-Awesome work! Glad to see your staying busy!!

I actually dont know. my helper unpacked it and stacked the tile in the room.
he is using a teal or Ipe bench to match the wood tile stripe and cabinets.

*for the floor he wanted to match the marble sills and existing brown tile on the bathroom floor. I wanted to talk him into using the matching 2x2 but they were slippery and he has a medical problem and didnt want a slippery floor, hence they textured porcelain 2x2 he used.

I do love the planks, have a couple more plank tile jobs on the books for Sept. but it was fun doing a Kerdi steamer.

I also met someone near me that has a metal shop and has a water jet.
he said he would cut tile for a good price. so I decided to give it a test
and cut some of the holes out for the steamer controls.

it worked great, they are close to me and no pulling my hair out and I wanted
to have this up my sleeve if I come across some of that hard porcelain tile
you just can cut or keeps breaking.

Remember this job when she came to the forum asking about lippage? We finished the job today.

The tub installation was particularly challenging. The trap and riser were buried well below the slab, just far enough off center to make installing the tub take 4 hours which was quick once we got the $140 drain kit. The jets gave precious little room for the lip of the tub to cover the opening in the marble slab.

The customers are thrilled and happy to have their home restored. I gave them the name and number of our favorite painter who can finish the rest of the job.

Nice Paul. Was there a 20 page thread on this one? How is it going on the other Kirdi job?

Brian, It's nice to know a good water jet guy. I still have the opposite zebra rug. I was worried the brown marble would break easy while they were being cut so I embedded some fiberglass cloth on the back with some aqua-defense. worked out great.

We return to the Puddle in the pan liner job this Monday (tomorrow) to finish the tiles, then will wait for the 254 to cure before grouting the following week.

Thats not really "tile work" anymore Rod, that looks more like a work of art.
Awesome
