The Photo Section

Where you can get your lerk on!

This is how I've spent my Christmas break; don't worry, it wasn't all work and no play.
The photos below are in order; I started December 22nd with the water-proofing (Schluter-Kerdi).

The shower dimensions are as follows: 2 back walls are 4ft and the side walls are 2ft which makes for a really nice sized shower.

I purchased a 48"x48" Schluter Shower Kit with the stainless steal drain from Tile Experts; the price was about $75 less that what I saw at the local tile shops and Home Depot. Unfortunately there wasn't enough Kerdi (waterproof membrane) to complete the project, so I had to spend another $150 at Home Depot to continue working as the local tile shop was closed during the holidays.

Schluter says to use Un-Modified thinset to apply Kerdi to the substrate and the tiles to Kerdi. John Bridge recommends the lightly modified thinset from CustomBlend, but this voids the Schluter warranty. I went with CustomBlend Premium Un-Modified thinset; when mixed properly, it almost had a consistancy that looked "gluey". If you are going to use UnModified thinset, make sure it's the premium stuff.

You will see that I'm not quite done yet, but mostly there. I had to rip out the shampoo shelf once because I didn't like it the first time, and I've made a minor mistake with the layout of the floor tiles which will go mostly unnoticed (I hope). Basically, I should have treated the drain like a tile and added the grout spacing around it but instead I abutted the 2 tiles against it. sigh. Always learning the hard-way. I think it will look ok though, it just means I need to have one row of tiles narrower than the rest. Because the slate is multi-colored and uneven naturally, I'm hoping that it won't be that noticable in the finished product.
