As always, great stuff here, everyone!

I say more power to the guys that can mud and kerdi the shower floor the same day. The last time I tried anything like that was setting the tile on a better bench when the mud was still wet and that didn't go so well... Ol Brad ain't in THAT big of a hurry anyway.

Yeah it's nice looking. Only thing I dislike about all these is that they are severely cupped(bowed) so I'm limited in how much I can actually stagger them. If two ends wind up near the center of another piece in the adjoining row it has an 1/8 lip on one side or the other. Only real solution is either a herring bone pattern or runnin them like steps. Or just staggers them and don't exactly center them as my customers wanted. I tried to push the herring bone as I believe it's the only way to avoid lipage all together but they refused. Ill post a pic tomorrow of the bow in them

It is nice looking tile. Nice work.

But what about that crack your setting directly over?
Let me guess-GC doesn't want to pay for membrane.

That's not a crack. It's where my mud line was. really does look like a huge crack in that pic though.

Cool. I had a recent customer want that.
It was a little more them they wanted to spend.
Nice stuff.

If the cupping is bad with those large planks you should try
using the TLS. I was able to take out a small cup off the 6x48
planks I did on a project in Sarasota, Florida.

It was like Christmas come early yesterday. The Laticrete 4 foot drain arrived, along with the new electronic shower control module. That meant today we could install the module, close the walls, install the Laticrete floor heat, and SLC over them. In the shower we used 4XLT over the wires as the floor is sloped there to the drain at the exterior wall.

thanks. Your floor looks great. Tls is those tile level systems? Which one do you recommend ? I've been getting quite a few of these types of floors lately would be great to actually get one flat. I know it will never be like a true hardwood pattern but I prefer to get it as close as I can without being so limited by the damn cupped tiles. :-)

TLS = Tuscan Leveling System. Its linked off to one side of this page or the other.

LASH is another system, similar to Raimondi's

Tornado is another system.

Each has their own thread here. Get ready for some reading.
