Was the glass made by a local place? I used that exact same tile you used on your shower floor for my kitchen backsplash.

Long live dalite gold dust 2x2 tile!

Yes, local glass supplier. Yale Glass - Yale, Michigan.

That tile is hard stuff, eh?

Fifteen years and going strong!

I know it has been 13 years since this thread had any activity, but I was looking at my shower today and I thought of this forum.

Fifteen years ago - in 2004 - I decided to tear out the main bathroom in our house and update it. I had no experience whatsoever doing a project of this magnitude, let alone a project requiring the specific skill set of laying tile and installing plumbing. But, lucky for me, I stumbled on the John Bridge Tile Forum while searching the internet for help.

And help I received! Every step of the way, experts helped me with problems and issues I had, and gave me great tips as well even when I wasn't having problems and issues. With your help, I was able to install a state-of-the-art (for 2004 in Michigan) Kerdi shower with beautiful Grohe bath fixtures. The shower has performed perfectly for 15 years, with not a single drop of water ever escaping the Kerdi system.

I can't thank members of this forum enough. You did me a great service that has stood the test of time. Thanks again!

Just a hearty thank you for this thread. About to finally begin a basement shower I had been posting the initial layout on a few years ago when I was finishing the basement.

The basement got done (except for shower) when of course a failed kitchen appliance and "scope-creep" led to remodeling/re-trimming the entire first floor, including cabinet reconfiguration and lower cabinet doors-to-drawers conversion, among other things.

Finally getting to the shower. This thread will be a wealth of information, along with many others.

Hi DPF,

I am glad that I could offer a little bit back to the community. When I did this project, which is already 15 years ago, I could not have even started the job, let alone finished it, without help from this forum. It is an invaluable resource.

Thanks for the kind words.

Dave

Oh, I hear you. I've come here for several projects over the years, both in my home and in a rental.

In fact, the bathroom I mentioned above, I first posted about back in 2010.

Here

It took me seven years to get to doing the basement finish job, which I couldn't be happier with. Then I've been backed up with other big projects delaying the shower. Luckily, the balance of the bathroom is fully functional, so the boys have their basement and a bathroom to use down there, just no shower. That will be shortly rectified .
