Remember when companies had there own line of products, and the stuff was made in factories in the USA and it lasted for than 2-3 years.

What are the odds of finding a medicine cabinet made in USA?

It's done, I think it turned out OK, I guess when I put a level on it in the morning I'll know.

tile shower replacement with new tile


I didn't work on it at all today. I did order a new medicine cabinet, light and fan. I also bought a new drill and tile saw. I have a little backer board in the nooks to finish up, and then tape and seal the seams with thinset. Then I have some self-leveling underlayment to use on the bathroom floor, it's 4.5' x 6' and its pretty rough, mostly hight spots (joist tops). Anyway, I have a full day planned tomorrow, and a visit to the tile store on Monday.

I taped and mudded (thinset) all seams in the shower. I mixed and poured two bags of self-leveling underlayment in the bathroom. Other than one spot, the new floor looks pretty good.

In the morning I'm going to the tile store to pick out my tile, and a marble door strip, so I can start looking at the end height-requirement to get the tile to the desired height.

The self leveling compound did a nice job, I could tile on it now if I wanted to, but I need to raise it more first. My toilet flange is too high, I take it it should be level or flush with the top of the tile. I still have the heat mat to install. I'm open to suggestions on raising the floor another inch.

tile shower replacement with new tile


I have received my Thermo-Tile radiant floor heating mat and thermostat. I also received my new medicine cabinet and light. I went to the tile store to pick up my new stone tile, and associated materials, including six bags of quick-level, to raise the floor about an inch and a half, leaving another half an inch for the 3/8 tile and thin- set. Does that sound right? I am planning on gaining a half inch of floor height with 3/8" thick 12x12 stone tile and thin-set.


I applied some red guard inside the shower tonight, should I put it on the shower pan? Seems like it wouldn't hurt, but I'm not sure whether or not that is the intended application.

I put down the Thermo-soft radiant floor heat mat, and two sensors, then reinstalled the cabinet and flooded the floor with quick-lite. I put down a total of four bags in two different pours. Tomorrow I'll cut and install the threshold stone with thinset, and then one more pour towards the door entrance, and the bathroom floor will be ready for tile.

I think I have the floor height back where it needs to be adjacent to the toilet. I'll lay a couple tiles around the flange to see how it looks.

Installing new stone tile in my bathroom

See link above...

I took this project to the tiling forum looking for more feedback, but that seems to have had little affect.

Anyway, I'm going to start on the shower walls this morning, and I'll update the thread in the tiling forum. Hopefully it will help someone out one day. Thanks for all the input so far!
