Great pictures. I was so happy to meet you and Dave. I enjoyed sitting at dinner with you two Monday night. You both are great people.
Again to everybody Thanks for all the help. It all ended too soon. I miss you all already.
Mr JB. I'm sorry there wasn't enough time to sit down and chat with you. I did get to enjoy Patt's company at lunch. Kelly I didn't get to chat with you either. Well, I guess I'll just have to travel to Texas and catch up with you guys.
Stoner I love Christie to death. You're nice too and come back to the diet thread, if you want.
I didn't get to spend enough time with Bugman and Frances.
Chuck You and Georgia are terrific people. Say hi to Georgia for me.
Dave Taylor and Debbie. When I ( or we) can, we're coming to visit, if Dave and I can ever stop laughing. What a case of the sillies we had. I enjoyed sitting with you both Tuesday nite. Debbie Thanks for being you.
To everybody else, I again am so happy to have met you all. In 4 short days, I have a lifetime of good memories.
I have made so many new friends and I hope you'll all communicate with me now and then and just say hi.

Okay,
We've heard about what a great time everyone had, and even about some extra-special secret products like the (hush,. hush) Kerdi-Set and the flange adapters. Did anyone get the poop on the new finishes for Schluter's Schiene profile and why they aren't being extended to Jolly? I know that an "oiled bronze" finish is in the works but has had some delays. Anyone pick up a whisper or two about these?

Shaughnn --

If we told you, we'd have to kill you.

Actually, since we were all such experts , Schluter gave us their 2 1/2 day course in two days. The profile talk, which was scheduled last, never occurred because we all were having too much fun playing with mud and Kerdi on Tuesday afternoon.

Given the popularity of the oil-rubbed-bronze finish on bathroom fixtures, one would think that Schluter would get on the ball with that. Trask mentioned having Kerdi-Drain grates powder coated to blend in with oil rubbed bronze. I also know that my local high-end hardware store can send parts out for PVD finishing in any finish. (PVD is what the faucet manufacturers call "lifetime" or "diamond" or several other finish names.) These finishes do not tarnish and require little care.

Thank you Jeff,
I'd forgotten about the drain grills!!! Certainly the folks at Schluter wouldn't overlook supplying their drain grills in EVERY possible finish to match their other profile systems????
How's about "brushed nickle"? I don't suppose that PVD would work with that finish, would it?

Thanks to you folks for posting the pics.

JB's influence is definitely evident. Seems like everybody has been refining the standing around technique. I gotta work on that more. Clothes stay cleaner for sure

Wow! What a whirlwind the past three days have been. It was great to put names with faces and I am grateful for the opportunity to be familiarized with the world of Herr Schlüter. Many thanks to the folks from DITRA & KERDI land, CTEF, TCA, the moderators on the forum, to JB hisownself, and Marge (of course) for attempting (and succeeding for the most part) to keep us on track.

Brian, Joe & Matt…thanks for the ‘speedy’ reminder.

Marge, thank you for letting me play in your sandbox (Meow). I'll be picking up a practice setup of my own so I can start perfecting the mud bed.

Jay and I got to the airport at 1300. I managed to get on an earlier flight out to DFW thanks to a bit of prodding by Marge (Meow...again). he employees at GSP airport have got to be the friendliest I've ever encountered. After a quick trip over to Love Field to catch a Southwest flight, I finally arrived at my destination here in San Antonio around 2330 Wednesday night and managed a few hours of decent sleep. Unfortunately, I won’t be eating anything I had during the Schlüter assimilation for quite some time.

Shaughnn, I do remember something about the finishes. However, my memory there is not too swift. Possibly sometime next year? Somebody wanna correct me on that?

KERDI-set, new drain options and new DITRA & KERDI labeled tools (trowels, for example) are just a few of the items on the horizon.

More later...

Cheers.

Shaughnn,

They said they are working on the oiled bronze look. They had them done but they came back unacceptable to their standards. They are still trying to find someone to do it. They are hoping that the oiled bronze will be along soon. They also said there are a LOT of new things in the works that will be coming out within the next year.

There is also some testing being done on a new ditra. It won't be a replacement but will accompany the current ditra. It is 1/4" thick and the preliminary test results are very impressive. I think they asked us not to talk about it so if someone needs to edit my post go for it. I figured if it was a secret they wouldn't have told fifty guys from an internet forum.

Bryan

Dave,
Musky doesn't keep his nametag on for YOUR benefit. If you've ever been out drinking with him you'd realize right quick that it's so HE doesn't forget!
