Yup, trying to give all the bells and whistles since it's family, work a lot slower when you're visiting and tiling. Beer thirty comes a little earlier in the day too

Justin you should be a sixer in by now.

What do you guys use to protect the tub while you are mudding. I was thinking blue tape 6 mill plastic to the tub and let it hang in. Unless you fellas got a better more tried and test alternative

I like to tape the drain then the top perimeter of the tub and use 3/4" plywood on top and just float it out. The plywood is cut back from the sides an inch or so, so you can set sticks and float it out plus it's a great platform to reach the ceiling.

You can also set the L-edge you're gonna use on the plywood pushed against the sticks so as you put the mud on the wall anything that drops you just pick your edge up and slide it on the mud board before you cut the wall.

Yeah I was posting and it was saying two hours later, the arid climate has been nice and seeing family is great... but I honestly can't wait to back in Texas. Lots of people, gas prices, and a general every man for himself driving mentality is exhausting.

I spent a good amount of my impressional years in SoCal, amazing what you see when you break away from that way of life and come back to visit. Would never go back, and will continually keep things simple where I'm at.

California is a place to go on vacation not a place to call home, think we are on the same page.

I moved from Cali 38 years ago and it was a rat race then. I can only imagine what it's like now.

Here's a video from Taiwan of mud setting with what looks like Portland/sand mud, and then Portland slurry to bond the tiles, which are big porcelain tiles. One neat thing is they just dump it all on the floor, and actually use a tiller to mix the mud. Anyway, floor comes out flat and nice looking. Is this totally wrong in any US context to do it this way, with Portland slurry like that? Should the slurry be richer?
