Thanks Tonto, The ceiling gets pvc crown. Money wise we always do well as we have a good handle on how long it will take us start to finish. Holes I don't mind it's the trim kits that only give a 1/4" leeway I have a problem with.

My customers really like the Bedrosians “Cloe” White 2×8 tile because it has the handmade look to it.
I showed them the other project pics and they loved the tile.
I finished this installation in Bexley in Land O Lakes, Florida a few weeks ago.
Been doing a lot of herringbone backsplashes here in Florida.

Are those on a sheet or individual tiles?

Those people have a hell of a view from their patio

Jeff looks good. That's almost like the Artistic Tile Motor city circles but half circles.

Shawn, Each fan is it's own sheet

Brian, it came from Artistic. They have some well made mosaic lines over there. The pricing is a little crazy on some of it.

Those are mosaics? I looked at this the other night and dint have time to ask. I zoomed in but couldn't determine. Nice work Jeff. I understand how this might be a pita. Badass

Here's a master bathroom shower & floor I completed in South Tampa, Florida.
3×6 polished Carrara subway on the shower walls, 1" hex shower floor and a “tile in” Schluter lineal drain.
6×24 Mansfield Amber plank tile on main room floor. The carrara subway was rough on the edges and not
micro beveled but the owners wanted the vintage look. ok

Here's a job I did this week with a picket Calacatta polished tile backsplash in "Bexley" Land O Lakes, Florida.
This tile was so nice and spaced perfectly on the sheets.

Great work as always Brian!
Makes a difference when the sheets come well spaced and placed!
Any veteran tips for when they aren’t??

Here’s some masonry for a repeat client. I’ll be fabricating the cap Monday afternoon will install later in the week

nice stone work, are you going to point it all ?

if tile isnt on sheets straight your only option it to cut with a razor knife once set and then use wedges to correct them. That is if the backing doesnt soften once installed from the mortar and you can move then that way some.

Poor quality photo, it’s all pointed up with a black dyed grout.

Thanks Brian! Figured it’s all a PITA or at least time consuming
Too bad it’s not paper faced, then it could get backbuttered with grout and set like glass
I’ve hand set some arabesque tile a few years back and the client was questioning why I was taking them off the sheets. Had to explain that the floor and decor blowout mosaics weren’t top tier in Q.C.

Sheet mounted mosaic tiles have always been what they are.

Back in my brother's early days in the trade mosaic tiles came in kegs and were mounted by hand in the shop. All face mounted with brown paper. What you don't see is what you get.
