Busy week this week - lots of odds and sodds.

Grouted the niche finally with the side lit shelf.

Trying to figure out how to finish this floating bench.

Working on testing my Hydro Ban drain.

Why is the foundation coated with red paint below the stone? Is that Denshield and redguard up above the new work?

I wonder how hard this bench will set up with just a few self tapping screws and tie wire as a reinforcement system for a bag of Mapecem Fast Setting Pre-Mixed Screed Mortar?

I put about half my weight on the wire prior to forming the bottom with some scrap poly and drywall off cuts. A little more work and this bench will be ready for tile.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Seeing John's "propped up with what's lying around pic" reminded me of this one ... Some days we literally could only do 2 tiles in this massive shower with 3 large niches. I didn't design this thing ... Just had to build the bugger ;-)

That seems like a hard way to do it. Granted, you could get a 700 lb guy on there with no problem. But why not just regular framing since it could be attached to each adjacent wall?

Nice stone work Evan. It is nice do that every now and again. Wouldn't want to do that everyday though.

Killer shower Bonzai. Did you need to frame in a new header above all those niches or was that just a partion wall?

Cause you got nothin.
Bare in mind I don't know my mouth from my arsehole when it comes to exterior finishing but my basic knowledge tells me in Ontario that wouldn't fly. Exterior finishing have to breath, if you want a water tight finish like stucco you have to put foam with vented channels on first.

My skin is crawling somewhat thinking this one over again ... long story short, the general contractor (who used to be a friend & who I referred to the client to get him the gig) screwed me over on this one in so many ways. This was one of 3 bathrooms we did in the same house, along with 1200 sqft of slate plus 2 flights of slate stairs. In total we put 15 weeks of labour in to this project, $5000 of which we were never paid for because the contractor lied to the client. The contractor insisted on framing in the showers himself which I never actually saw as the Wonderboard was up before I got a chance to see. He also insisted on using Wonderboard which I detest. He didn't even want me to waterproof it but I insisted. That back wall is the adjoining wall to the neighbouring townhouse.
Unfortunately the walls were somewhat bowed & he also messed up the positioning of the niches (chose not to follow the layout I provided) ... he even messed it up a 2nd time i.e. after rebuilding the top niche it was still wrong. I was blamed for this despite the fact I did not build the wall or install the backer board or do the design. The damage in these pics was caused after he lost his temper, threw a tile at the wall & then had his labourer rip out the 2 damaged tiles. I repaired it & made it work though as at that point I felt for the client.
And yes, that is regular drywall on the sloped wall ... again another example of where the contractor refused to listen to reason. Thankfully I have all these photos. Hell he didn't even want me to fix the hole in the wall ... "just tile over it & stop complaining" was the response I got. At one point I was tempted to call Health & Safety on him as he had us climbing up 2 flights of metal stringer (no treads) with 16x16 slate tile, thin set, etc to reach the master suite. Although very proud of the work we did, this was a nightmare of a project.
