Hi Chris, welcome to the forum. Like Marge said, nice work! I bet there aren't many 33 year old tilesetters with 20 years experience.

Welcome aboard Chris. I like your work. You have attention to detail. Your fireplace looks similar to the one in my own house I like adding a keystone to a fireplace even if there is no arch. I'm not to keen on that valve escution running into the bar rail in your shower, but I understand that some things are what they are and not every detail can be controlled. Excellent work, glad to have you with us.

how i found this place

About 2 years ago it was anounced at the place i sub from that they was going to the schluter system. So after taking the course and doing my first schluter job (of which i hated). I googled "tile forum schluter" to see if i was alone with my complaints. I caught a link to this site.

Welcome to the forum, Chris. Glad you found us here.

How have things changed in the last 2 years since that first job?
