Not much to show, I haven't had a lot of time to do it, but should be done in about 16 hours. Still have the floor/waynes coat/grout/caulking to do. But I figured I'd post up a few pictures.

Looks great as always! I'm about to try to tackle a little tile project myself. If I had some extra room in my budget I'd definitely hit you up for some work.

Thanks for the kind words!

I haven't had time to take on any big projects. This one is pretty complicated/big, but its for my SO's parents. So they are very forgiving with my schedule and time frame I'm available.

That's awesome Justin. My boss' wife just redid their basement bathroom floor and is now doing a tile bar floor. I never thought it was easy I didn't realize just how much time and effort goes into it. Much respect for what you're doing.

Damn, you do some good work! Looks like an interesting setup for a bathroom. Are the mosaic tiles individual or are they big pieces?

Using a Kerdi membrane in the wet area's. Not too worried about other area's, since they don't recieve much moisture, Densshield is plenty there.

Plus with using the Kerdi membrane and DitraSet, its warrantied against moisture through Kerdi.

Do you use any backerboard or concrete board or just that membrane?

The contractor that did the initial frame work ended up doing the walls in greenboard. Was screwed down pretty well, and instead of having my labor of tearing out/installing new DensShield in those area's, we decided to use the membrane over everything. Which it's fine, and warrantied against moisture breaking through. The parts he left unfinished, i finished with DensShield, and will be doing the floor in FiberBoard.

Thanks.

It'll be finished Sunday. Its basically favor work, so I worked around their schedule and needs. A few issues came up so it set me back a bit, but really all I have to do is grout/caulk it now. Turned out really well, imo.

Yes it did, a large part of my job is fixing jobs that go bad and that looks really nice. Glad to see a good tile setter, if you ever run into a problem on an install or it's something you have never seen before feel free to shoot me a message.

for sure. The issues I ran in to were because of the initial rough in, that somebody else did. Can't always ask for everything to go right. :lol2: Luckily they were fixable.
