Levi nice job on your project. I love the look of slate showers, I just don't like cleaning them.

Mark- very impressive. How long did it take you to make that herringbone mosaic out of 12" x 12" material?

Even though I hope it was on mesh that is some awesome work.

Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding work everyone!!

Here's a lil marble job I'm working on. Nothing like Mark's but mines not just "threw together" like his either. Stunning work Mark! You seem to "throw together" some beautiful installs.

18" marble tile, 1/16" grout lines, 6" accent band cut out of 12"x24" floor tiles. Packed the mud bed today, (thanks dana!), covering it with kerdi and shaved river rock tomorrow. Also installing the kerdi-line linear drain tomorrow.

Oh, and the cute lil shelf I made today

Jeremy~Nice lookin' tile there. I believe they call it "Versaille" pattern. I did a house a while back with that pattern.

As in the second pic, did you alter the design to better fit the doorway?
They didn't want it good, they wanted it Wednesday.

That looks ok Mark. Not special, but guess it will pass.

In all seriousness, that bathroom is SICK! Like Marge said, one of those timeless designs where they won't be kicking themselves in 5 years when the trends have changed. Beautifully done!

As usual, great work by the rest of you too!

Wow, everyone except Mark! Work is looking great!

Mark, I know you're just a hack, the first step is admitting it!
Seriously, freakin awesome. Tough act to follow.
