Nah, you can do it. You have mad skills and besides, I want to see you grout all those pebbles

And I would never raid another man's wife's pantie drawer. I'd just bring my own

I've been using the ALS (angus leveling system)

Actually, there were 2 tiles I was afraid I couldn't get plumb. You can see in 1 pic I used the RLS (raimondi)

looking forward to the finished product, think you'll get it done this week?
that plumber really messed up your schedule on this one. is this bid or t&m?
We've only used the aluminum ones and each end (up here) cost me around 6.00. But the finished product is very nice, you know it's the little things. I found it confusing at the supplier which ones to use, there are so many.

Back on the job.

Starting layout for floor. Tiles have metal flake in them.


That small niche cutout is giving me no end of headaches

Yes, the HO likes all things grey. The floor grout is charcoal grey.

Very nice Angus, I had damaged tiles and ran short today myself. I know how that goes....usually happens on the jobs that seem to drag on.

And where is this video I'm hearing about?

Second or third page. I made a BAD video about how much the new generation Durock deflects. Video sucks....although the Permabase was much more rigid.
