Good point. I tested it out of the box and the resistance test was in spec.

The instructions say to test it again when it is in place. Tomorrow I'll test it before I embed it in the SLC.

Hey nice job so far. I'd like to see some of the plumbing upgrades you do. Keep up the good work.

Laid my Suntouch heating pad and fastened in place. I expected it to be more fussy but it goes on relatively flat.

The trickiest part was running the wires through my wall and positioning the heat sensor just right.

I'm now all primed and in two hours will be ready to pour.

Btw, I retested the mat resistance and it hasn't changed, still within spec.

Poured the SLC.

I was expecting a bit more drama and mess but it went down great.

The most stressful part was carrying the heavy full pail through the dining room, kitchen, and up the stairs hoping the handle on my $3 bucket held. Whew, success.

It's like watching paint dry, only not as exciting.

I'm curious about the purpose of the bulkhead over the tub area. I'm impressed with the progress of this job. Keep up the good work!!

I dropped the ceiling 6 inches to make room for a light above the shower. The side benefit aesthetically is it allows me to install crown.

Nice progress on this. I am wondering what kind of tile you are going to use for the shower. Highly recommend going to a tile store, home depot is OK for floor tile but their choices are limited as to what they have in stock. The tile stores can get you something the next day usually.
