Dave,

Take that picture again after you've grouted, and send me the big version. We'll use it in the store somehow.

Welcome aboard, Doug. Have you viewed the Kerdi video?

Dave,

I thought the floor tile looked familiar. I have the same Golden Nugget 2x2s for my shower floor, and also the matching 8x10s for the walls. I know what you mean about the mosaics being sandpapery, I figured they'd keep me from slipping for the most part. Grouting them won't be fun though, I'm guessing.

John: I'm waiting for the 32x60 KERDI tray to be available, then I can get cracking. At least that's my line for now.

Not as of yet. We already have a few orders on it... just waiting for the stock to arrive from "Big S".

I'll keep everyone up-to-date.

Okay, Dan, do a mud floor. If you're going to make excuses, come up with something good. Two broken legs -- something like that. Or your dog died, something impressive.

John,

Yeah, the excuses don't work so well on my girlfriend either.

Its tax time, so I'm working a lot these days, and my weekends are down to one day, if I'm lucky. That said, I'm going to try moving my drain this Sunday, then greenboard, niche framing, and maybe Dave will get the KERDI kit to me by the end of that.

Unless Schluter is going to come out with some fancy new stuff soon? Maybe a 32x69 tray? I can wait.

John,

No, i haven't seen the video. I've done a lot of reading on shower instulations but, have not really worked with tile before. I think I could do it if I took my time. I just want to make sure I have all my ducks in line first. I sure would like to know how to post pics on your board so if I do tackle this project, I could post the progress. Maybe I will post a pic of my shower now so I could get some pointers and ideas. I am interested in this topic and shower instulation because it is the same size as my area. Thanks!

Doug,

Here's the link to the Kerdi installation video on the Schluter site.

http://www.schluter.com/video/2002/Kerdi.ram

It's an excelent system, easy on the do-it-yourselfer.

Posting pictures here is done in two ways: You can post direct from your hard drive to our server by hitting the "browse" button at the bottom of the reply form. That will bring up your hard drive directory. Find the picture, double click it and then post the reply. Don't preview it. Just post it. The pics have to be jpeg format and smaller than 51 KB.

Or, you can post a pic that is on another site by using the bb code. You'll find those instrustion in the FAQ (top right).

Dave,

Keep a blow by blow list of your wilson glass experiences. I am thinking of doing the same thing just a bit worried that it might be over my head.

Niche - In Progress

Here is a photo of one of my niches, in the process of being tiled. I bet it is really gonna get cumbersome when I tile the small one!

I would have designed the niche a bit different if I had it to do over again. As you can see, one of the pieces of radius bullnose was not sufficient to cover the entire depth of the side, so I had to piece it, which is not exactly my first choice. (The second piece is not in yet in this photo) I considered using Schluter trim with field tile, but my wife did not care for the look. I must admit, I like the all tile look better, too.

Sorry, David Taylor.

Dave,

That little piece back there won't even be noticeable after you get it grouted in. Heck, get about five of those tall shampoo and conditional bottles in there and you'll be set.

Rand Fan?

Good lookin shower dz!!

I'm in the throes of steam shower construction, although I'd like to hit the FF button and end up where you are. Finding time with a 18 month old up on the stool with you does not effective use of time make.

By any chance, do you read Ayn Rand?

Just curious vis-a-vis your "A is A" locale.

Hi Dave,

I almost always do it the way you're doing it. It's going to be ok, don't worry. You can complete it with the smaller tiles and match the grout joints with the back, or get some extra bullnose, and cut off the radius and have only one grout joint per side. There are no rules. Either way, finish up so we can get to that valve trim!

PharmD:

I do read Ayn Rand, as a matter of fact. If you search here for her name, you will find another thread where someone asked me to explain "Where 'A' is 'A'. I never got a reply, I think I scared them off!
