We sell a lot of SL83 tile, and those octagons are popular because they're on the same sample board, although the color is like SL81.

Re: Some Showers I Done Did


Here's some mid-construction photos of the bigger shower, enjoy. This bad boy, including the tub surround and the floor that goes into a toilet room took about 3.5 days just to tile, not including grout or subfloor prep. Either I'm slow, or this was just a big ass tile job.

By the way, Wedi rocks. Sure, the pans cost $400, but being able to complete a tile shower pan in 2 hours from cutting to setting, and being on your way with sheathing the wall in the same day is priceless.

Re: Some Showers I Done Did


My first Onyx shower system in years. A kitchen floor using Armstrong VCT with Acrylic grout, quite possibly the most installer unfriendly product short of working with fresh lava. Also did the backsplash.

Why did you only do a foot rip of wedi above the pan? What did you finish it off with. Thin set on top of wedi?
