Paul, how do you install tile with that thing?

Stephen, it's the new ValueSeal. All seams and edges had 2 beads of Noble 150 sealant (the blue stuff) although they do OK thinset seams with that product. The drain is the Noble Freestyle- my first time using it and it's a really nice and well made drain.

A few pics of last weeks shower. Nothing extra ordinary. Re-framed the knee wall to fit the new tub splash. Recessed niche and panel installed as requested. Another day at the office lol.

Nice work and lots of it there, Jack. I like the way the liners flow through the niches.

I'm a little jealous, Paul. There's days I'd love to let loose with a bobcat.

We now have a driveway / parking area. No more mud !

Today we are prepping the floors for Ardex self leveler over plywood. Yesterday I found a 80 grit flap sanding disc on the right angle grinder made very short work of grinding down the drywall mud, dirt, and accumulated junk on the plywood subfloor. Took about 2 hours to sand and vacuum 800 square feet by myself. I could also grind down any high spots at the same time.

Paul we use a large Dewalt grinder with 80 grit and a vacuum hood. Works great. We recently did 1,300 ft of wood plank over wood subfloor. The grinder makes quick work and the results are nice and clean.

I've been a long time lurker but recently decided to join. I work for a large commercial tile company and I just finished a large project for them, the last phase was ~18,000 feet of 12x24's and a water jet logo stuck in the entry way.

The water jet work was done by Dal-Tile, they couldn't have made it any easier on me with how detailed they made the drawings/instructions. The mosaic was only half the thickness of the large tile so after we dry laid it for approval, I then stuck a drill bit in at the center point, hooked a schluter strip on to said drill bit and swung a radius with a sharpie. We tiled past the radius, then redrew the radius on top of the tile, cut it wet with a 4 1/2" blade, floated the middle flat, then finally laid the logo back in. It was a lot of work, but I was so happy it all worked out in the end.

I have to link an imgur album because I don't have enough posts

Finished setting all of the tile

I really need to try to talk people into a larger shower. My big self does not fit trying to set tiles in those little spaces.
