Unfortunately I didn't bring the camera when I did the liner. Yes I preslope, instlal liner and then mud bud. Also I skim the floor and curb with thinset to keep it from getting damaged when I install my wall tile. That is why the floor looks light grey.

Dave- When we do pan tile for the accent we always do shelves above, if an accent listello than sometimes below...most designers make me do it that way-- this one I was the only designer so I figured they must know more than I do.

Personally I would rather have a niche that only two shelves, but hey Cheap builder-- told me he wanted two niches in there but then didn't want to pay any extra

I would like to introduce Carl and Diane. Besides being two of the sweetest Southern folk you could ever know; we also share the same grandson, which makes them family.
A few years back, Carl had some major renovations done to his home and he called on an old buddy to handle the workload. Much of the work, including the pool and decking looks excellent but for reasons none of us have been able to figure out, the tile work in the kitchen was improperly installed and began cracking soon after the installation.
Wanting to upgrade the flooring in the house, Carl and Diane recently hired me to re-do the kitchen floor, and also install hardwood floors in other rooms. Upon tearing out the tile, it was obvious why the installation had failed. The installer used Hardibacker but never cemented it to the wood underneath. He also butted the board in some places, failing to leave an expansion gap and did not tape and mud the seams.
If you look at the before and after pictures, you will not only see cracked tiles but you can also see where the cracks came through the thinset from the un-taped seams below. I should also mention that the grout joints varied in width from 3/8th on an inch to over half an inch in some places and the grout was uneven in texture and color.
I sincerely hope that mommom and poppop are happy with their new floors. It was a pleasure hanging out with you guys. Thanks!

Hey Rick,
How was tearing out the Hardibacker. I have only ripped it out once and the original installer used liquid nails under it. It was a disaster. It took me all day to pull up about 45 ft.

jamie,

i know your not talking to me, but i had to tear it out where someone used liquid nails, ring shank nails 10d with a nail gun and square head screws on top of that. It took me 5 hours to pull 6 sheets. Our conclusion was that the guy who did it just bought a new nail gun so he wanted to try it and got some cool new screws that he wanted to try and a new glue gun that he wanted to try out.

It was not glued down but it appeared the installer used a quickdrive to screw it down, which is what I happen use. The board itself came up fairly easy but I had to bang down each screw because screwing them out was nearly impossible. Took me one day to completely prep the floor for the new cbu.
