that one last piece hanging over will go on the other door frame you can seen in picture. I have to buy some either route since using 5" may not work.

Like bud said bulky. I still have to add the inner corners

Technically......
All "changes-in-plane" should be caulked, not grouted.

is 2 3/4" from floor to curb to high? Looks like it. Should I add something to curb to make a little taller?

OK now I'm getting lost again.

First you ask is 2-3/4" too high for a curb and you say "it looks like it". Am I reading it correctly?

THEN you ask if you should add to the height of the curb. I think your fine right where you are. In most cases this would work. There is no set standard, but generally a curb is around 3" on the inside of the shower and about six inches on the outside.

Yea he shot out a few of the sharpies


The other 2 sides can wait until the floor dries, that bending over junk kills my back.

Hoping to do the other sides tomorrow and water test Wednesday!!! if that pans out should finish tiling sunday.

What is your choice of grout sealer?

Aqua-Mix is my usual choice in grout/tile sealers but Tile Lab from Home Depot works for me also.
