How much of gap should I leave...

Gonna be starting my shower REAL soon and need to know how much of a gap I should leave in the corners for caulk. I also, I built a corner/diagonal monument seat and need to know the needed tile gap for that as well. Oh yeah, I'm using 12" granite tiles. Thanks.

1/8" is fine. your looking for enough for the caulk to bite too without being overkill. Good Luck with your project

Hey Sean,

It would be a good idea to stick to one thread for the shower. Makes it easier for the staff to keep up with things.
