Nice work Gary, Brian, and Paul.

Brian that Montagna Cortina never dies. We have done a lot of it in 16's and 12's.

Here is a lanai we finished recently in the 20" version. Set with 4XLT and grouted with Sprectralock Latte. Sorry for the shadows, sun was going down. Some of us are slow and actually have to work till 5:30pm

Getting set up for a condo job at the Papakea Resort. We did the owner's lanai in January and now we are doing the interior of the condo with the same 18" ceramic tile. Installed a bonded mud bed to get the floor flat, then Hydrobarrier over the existing cracks in the concrete. Setting with 253 and will grout with Permacolor Sand Beige.

A master bath renovation we are doing for some clients in Lahaina. A piece of glass will be installed on the back of the tub surround after the tile is installed. So I set up the saw outside and cut through the window.

Greg,

Thanks for the kind words.

Even with the pre-made border pieces, (which had an error in them) The measuring and planning for the floor took 4.5 hours. Actual installation took 2 hours.

The HO is very pleased.

All work on this page looks Fantastic!! I do Love this thread.

I know I may be perceived a bit biased but, I would like for all to take note at Scotty's comments. Of course his skills played the majority role in getting the desired finished product. None the less, I believe MLTSystem made his job much easier than it would have been, without it.

It is common place to experience the conditions he was up against when working in older homes, where settling has occurred. Going with the roll and trying to keep every corner of the tiles from sticking up can be a frustrating challenge and very time consuming.

A mechanical advantage will always make a big difference in these conditions.

I REALLY Like that shower, Paul.

Having had the opportunity to work with Paul on this and other jobs, I gotta admit that his precision would have made him a damn fine surgeon...

Thanks Laz, but why would I take a cut in salary ?

Your not kidding. That floor would of been way harder to do if I didn't use the MLT. I self leveled the floor as much as I could. Height restrictions made it impossible to level it completely flat. I had no choice but to let the floor roll a bit.

Finished working with Paul in La Port on Friday....had a call that night to do some "adjustments" for a client that night in Orange, Tx. A job I did about three years ago...and they wanted a medallion in the foyer. Cut the tiles out and just finished it today.

One of the secondary boarders (darker brown) was damaged. Had to take a piece of 12x12 marble and cut it down to match. Betcha' can't tell me where it was!
