Greg, I would hafta give very, very serious thought to leaving that sheet of tiles alone and calling that a feature. I see a great deal of sorrow in your future if you try to fix the situation.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Hi all,

It’s been a few days since I posted any updates. Bathroom is just about finished - all that is left is to put up some glass shelves above the toilet so aside from those, here a a few pics of the finished bathroom. (Sans glass door as well as that won’t be in for another few weeks)

- I decided to leave that shower floor alone. I agreed with CX - it just wasn’t worth the possible ramifications fixing it would probably cause.







Gotta say - considering the work that went into all of it, from that nightmare of moving that drain to the tile being discolored, I really am happy with it. Sure, it’s not perfect, and there is a lot I would have done differently had I to redo this, but I think it cameout ok.

Note to self though - I definitely do not want to use two different grouts again. And I need to get better at doing mortar beds if I ever do another shower - but all in all - it was a fulfilling project. Thanks to all of you for the help and encouragement! Happy New Year!

Greg

Gotta be happy with that, Greg, looks very nice. And I like the idea of using the asymmetrical vanity, allows for some much needed and very usable drawers.

Getting better at doing mortar beds is just a matter of practice, Greg, and you can do that in your garage using damp sand and re-using the materials as often as you want. But realistically, you'll likely do fine on your next one having done only one previously. Same with the two grout colors.

Hell, if we made this tiling thing any easier we'd have homeowners doing it themselves! No...wait..........

Looking snazzy, Greg. After so many problems solved and such a volume of work, it really gives you a sense of accomplishment, eh?

Thanks! Yes it does. once the shelves go up it will complete it but I feel good about it. The black tiles look weird in the pic because some are beveled and some aren't, but all in all, in person it actually doesn't look as weird.

You are right - after so many issues it feels good to have it finished.
