So the weekend was spent tiling the shower. The river stone looks really nice. The tiler is doing a great job, making sure everything is flat and level. We’re thinking about getting a seamless shower door, so the walls have to be near perfect or it won’t swing right.
All of those little red things are tiny wedges that he uses to make sure the grout lines are nice and level. And the stuff that looks like red paint is an extra layer of water proofing at the joints and corners.
The dark stripe is a smoked glass tile, it doesn’t really show up that well in the pictures. He’s also got a few stones to cut and insert around the drain so there isn’t too much of a grout area next to it.
The tiler used some of the threshold marble to line the shelf’s, that way there’s no seams on the bottom. I put a small block of wood behind the wall to hold the shower fixture at the right distance from the tile face so the handle won’t have this big gap behind it. Monday, he should finish up the tiling and the small details and then he can start grouting. we’re getting closer!
