After the Krick Krocks failed miserably switched to string a level and it's working much better!

From page 25. I always thought the drain was best situated on the ceiling for the shower.

Been working feverishly to get room painted before carpet is installed Tuesday. That includes painting and installing the new bathroom door and the converging pocket doors.

Finished all the critical wall tile in the bathroom. The shower door is now laser line plumb on both sides. So glass door company should have no issues installing a steam door.

Next finish ceiling then the glass accent tile!

From 1/20/2011: This is probably the last design tweak I'll do until I get a go ahead on the plumbing rough in. It will take me a month to tile this bathroom...

Well, I've been at this now for a lot longer than a month!

Plumb certainly helps, but what they really want is a consistently flat surface. They can measure and fit just about anything. A wall with a consistent surface that's off-level is better than a level one that uneven. Or so my glass guy mentioned to me.

I chose to put Silestone quartz around all the shower openings. You're not likely to get more flat that unbroken lengths of the same 3cm material all the way around...

Which doesn't detract from the excellent job you've done thus far. Nice work!

THANKS! I'm planning on using my 6' screed to set final tile position, the Raimondi does excellent job removing lippage.

Just laid out accent glass tile for room length of 123" so I know where cuts will land.

Heh, when you put all this effort into the job it's worth going the extra mile to plan cuts precisely. Nobody else would ever notice if something wasn't even, but you'd see it every time...

Finished tiling the floor. Will be grouting tomorrow. If I can work at a steady pace from now on should be done in about a month with bathroom.

I like the tile levelling system but it leaves mortar behind the clips that you can't see but when you break them off mortar has to be cleaned. I have a few areas not sure how to cut out.

Something I would do differently would be to place a clip at the bottom of the row on the ledger board to keep spacing away from wall the same. I have the clips stuck in backwards just to keep grout space even.
