2014 TCNA Handbook

It is amazing to me on how the last ten years have changed in the tile world.

The 2003-2004 handbook was 47 pages and the new 2014 handbook is almost 300 pages larger. Also getting closer to 1" thick.

It's why statement like,"I've been doing it this way for 15 years" are so ridiculous.
A lot has changed.

The book is based on lots of years of experience -- accumulated prior to 2014 -- , some may be before the 15 years mark .

I've been doing mud floors for over 15 years , nothing ridiculous to it . Just saying .

I noticed there's no CTEF CTI directory, that's dissappointing... Havent looked through it otherwise.

Eric, I think that comes under the heading of improvements to the Handbook for 2014. Now if the same would happen to the Sustainability section...................

You want a flat floor , it is the easier way . Why not new construction and concrete floors ? Plywood floors too . You just need to depress them , like in old times .

Sloped floors -- where drainage or water management is extremely important without accumulations -- are another '' find it necessary '' option . You can make your mud the way you want with no effort . Ok , a little effort is involved . LOL

A skill I don't have. It almost seems like it's another trade anymore.

It is never too late , Wes . The desire of learning it , is enough .

Talking about older homes , this one was treated the same as 60 years ago with some improvements .
