bench and most lower studs were totally rotted to powder. old shower had no waterproofing.

Do you have "piss-ants" in FL.? They stink and will rot wood, and from my experience they seem to like the lower half of a shower.

Nice prep Brian.

Nice tub surround Jack.

Awesome glass tile bathroom Stephen. I bid a job that had a gradient blend Oceanside glass shower. It was part of much larger project. I was tempted to do it for free just so I could use the material. Then I remembered I have kids and bills. Don't think I got it but if I ever do I will checking in with you for some advice.


This is the travertine shower I finished up recently. Went back to take finish pictures. It is 12 x 24 travertine with onyx liner and shower pan.
It is a hydroban shower, with divot and unblocked weepholes.
Grouted with Spectralock mushroom. Glad Gueuze isn't here to call me out on the cheap drain. (The GC provided)

Really nice shower Isaac, I like the overall design and I really like the floor, drain almost looks like a spinner Did they start making spinner drains yet...lol

Stopped in on a customer I did the kitchen floor & splash to get some some final pics with everything in place. On the fireplace I put the cbu on but someone else did the tile cause I was too busy on the kitchen. No TLS used on the fireplace, lighting shows the lippage(warpage)....as Levi experienced perfection is in the eyes of the customer and she loves this fireplace with the lippage

Got a nice thank you card today from her and a nice crisp 50.00 in with it. To date this is the nicest compliment a customer has ever written. We all need a lil motovation. I realize 50 may not seem like much to most a you but normally I get 00.00 for a tip, it wasn't the amount but her thoughtfulness

FIFTY BUCKS!I haven't seen that kinda dough in years.I think the fireplace works okay,it has a nice texture look with the bows.That overhead lighting can kill a backsplash though huh? That kitchen makes me think of a French farmhouse,at a winery,with french maids,errr gotta go.

Very nice, Jon. I know what you mean about "tips." I haven't had one since I moved here to Texas from Virginia.....then, just before Xmas, I got a $350 tip on a $750 backsplash! I love it...........
