Naw, they didn't want to pay to R&R the base. I left the standard expansion joint, and installed shoe afterwards. Again, not my choice, this was a job for a local shop.

I hate burying the base too, it ends up looking waaaaay too short.

Never seen horseshoes before.....Are they easier to use or something...
Like the tile design Dan.


Just finished up this bath. Customers demoed the whole thing and realized they had know idea how to put it back together.....Fine by me, always hated demo anyways.

I did like there idea of using a vessel sink in an antique cabinet

Here's a few shots of some of the work I did on my recent trip to Kentucky. Unfortunately, I didn't get any shots of the finished product. 12x12 polished marble.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


You guys do some great work!

Here is a fireplace in a Panera Bread we finished up in Boston this fall. Cant see it in the pics but it goes 12ft to the ceiling. Panera had a local guy fab the sandstone and we did the final trim to fit.
It was a combination of 12"x24",12"x12" and 6'x24" Fiandre Straw from Transceramica.The floor is 12"x24" Fiandre Wisdom Rust
The last 2 pics are of the staging area for a project we did in Allentown Pa.

Yes...im partial to Laticrete!

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


to be honest not much other than cost and the way it comes. hydroban comes in 1 gal and 5 gal. Hydrobarrier comes in 3 1/2 and 1 gal. They say you need fbric with the hydrobarrier. But use fabric in the entire stall basically making kerdi. I do 3 full thick coats. I have tested some stuff with them both and very very good products. The hydrobarrier has a 15 year war and the hydroban has a lifetime. But you have to use the full warranty receipe.

liquids are easier for me with my hand missing the finger. kerdi had to much build up. just wish laticrete would come out with a drain.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Thanks a lot Opie.

What's your view on using the Lat with Hardie backer (tub surround) as far as needing a primer coat as Red Guard Does ?

Use some Lat with water 3/1 or just forget about HB ??

Thanks a lot. I enjoy your posts.
