Thanks mike where did you find the spec sheet. The bottom tile is continuous ane sloped outward. The top one is also slightly pitched out. The back tiles sits between the top and boom one but sits behind the side ones. As for membrane or plastic ,nope. The back wall of the shower is in a unfinished portion of the basement. I could see spending 40 dollars for a bucket of redguard. Niche is about 11x 11


Again thanks for the good news. Imhad already sets the tiles in the meanwhile and kept ,y fingers crossed lucky me.

I am goin to clear silicon or black silcon the marble tile.

Thanks mike

I hope i sell e house before i have to re grout. F that. The look is nice but would i do mosaics like that in a shower again, no. Just because of the grout factor. I am going to seal the grout. Probaly once a year. The fan is a humidity sensing fan with a modified night light motion sensing light that has be reconfigure to turn on and off separate from the light. If you on the can the fan comes on and stays on for five minute. And the fan shuts of when the humidity has reached a prset acceptable level. Thanks for the help, i like peolple like you
