Installing new stone tile in my bathroom


I was able to maintain tile height wrapping around the shower jamb.

Installing new stone tile in my bathroom


Tomorrow I can swap sides with the plywood, and do the other side, and start working the niches, fun stuff!

What is that thing next to the drain and wall?

Looks like you still have to make your pre-slope, what are your plans for that? Or is that done

This link covers the pre-slope.

That thing in the picture is a plastic tub full of screws and spacers, next to a vacuum cleaner. It's a small bathroom, I keep moving everything around depending on what area I am working on.

I already know the answer.... But do you know the answer... I just read a lot of Mike telling you to read the link and your confusion results in going back to read his link. Why do you want to put heating in the shower floor?

Anyway make sure you roof felt the bottom then use wire mesh for deck mud, deck mud doesn't stick to wood or concrete. If you want heating membrane then this becomes 2 part deckmud or if you forgo the heating then build your deck mud up to hight then kerdi or redguard top.

The shower pan has been finished for over a week or more.

I put electric heat under the bathroom floor.

I'm in the tiling stage now, do you have any helpful tiling suggestions?

I put my plywood guide on the other side and tiled as straight and even as I could make it.

Installing new stone tile in my bathroom


I finished installing all the tile in the shower, and applied a coat of red guard on the shower pan. Tomorrow I plan on installing the 2" tile in the shower pan, and some other tiles in the bathroom corners. My countertop and sink should be ready next week. I'll cut and install the remaining course just above the pan after everything is cured.
