Davy--Thanks for the reply I appreciate it. Since I am using 12 inch tile and 3/16 inch grout lines, it is 96 inches to the ceiling to the floor, So I measured appropriately and am hopeful it will work out. If not, then it would a mistake otu of earnest and will have to figure something else out like an accent at the top towards the ceiling lol.
Any HOUSTONIANS around to help with the granite questions previously posted?

What Davy said about your ledger as in the pic below. Then when you get to the accent strip, skip that and use filler blocks to hold the space for the accent strip and spacers, then fill in the upper field tile. Let that set before pulling the blocks and setting the insets. It will be much easier.

As for the granite, send me a PM for the number to my granite guy.

Hey guys, I am wondering if anyone can post pictures of their niches so i can get a better idea of how to do mine with the tile layout. I am sure I will use bullnose on the outside of the niche just to hide the cuts.

Also, anyone have ideas of how to hide the cut procelain tiles on a corner inside of the shower that sticks out as opposed to the corner tiles being hidden? The corner in my shower on the side of my bench comes at you when viewing it if that makes sense.....

Once again, thanks everyone!!

Talking

Sorry I havent updated this thread in some time. My apologies for anyone who may have been following. I would like to thank everyone for their help and guidance. The shower has been finished for a few weeks but I havent uploaded pics of it. I will do so tomorrow. I am very pleased with the turn out. No issues or problems with the tiles, plumbing, epoxy grout, nothing is loose, or uneven. It behaves and looks like a professional with pride did it

Looks good, Eddie! I like the way you turned that corner bumpout into a nice feature!

Thanks guys. It was a challenge for the bumpout to try and make it useful instead of just being there you know. The mosaic should have been just a tad higher or the niche just a tad lower but im happy with it.
