Nice lookin shower Rich. Those pebble joints look good too. Did they come that way, or did you have to rework them?

Nice work. Is there a chance you could replace the drain? You are doing beautiful work and that crappy drain is ruining the look of the floor. Why do plumbers still use the $8 HD drains?

The Pebble stuff was surprisingly easy to work with,and was mounted nice too.
I did put the puzzle pieces together,prior to cutting/committing etc,and out of 40+ sheets,I only substituted one sheet. Material was an in stock item,from Floor and D├ęcor,here in Sarasota.

As far as the drain,that's on the contractor,and/or homeowners lol. I do agree,should be a better drain.....at the very least,put a brass looking circle drain cover in. Other bath is square/Ebbe drain.

Pics...and I actually called 911 regarding the pics.....looked like Sanford and Son,times three lol.

Today we squeezed 10 pounds of potatoes into a 5 pound sack.

This top-of-the-stairs laundry room was taken to the studs, re-wired, plumbed, and vented for the new stacked W&D in its new location. The cabinets replaced the crappy shelves, the floor was tiled in 24x24's with a floor drain. The 6 inch tiled baseboards have the same Nobelseal waterproofing as the floor in one giant piece*. The W&D are no more than 3/4" off the back wall. The french doors open out as they did before. The LED lighting fixture is 1.5 inches thick to allow for the cabinet doors to open. Once the closet guys are gone, we'll cut and install the butcher block counter and set it into place.

* Thanks to Nobel for making 6 foot wide sheet membrane

Wish other sheet membrane companies would do the same.

I really like working with the 6' Value Seal. Typical "pan" and upturn in one shot and the walls are a breeze. Very efficient it is.
