First major tile job

I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of my sister's bathroom... did this over the winter as I had time to work on it. Big thanks to Czizzi for helping me out with advice when I needed it!

I won't bother boring you with the step by step process, but I found the "floorelf" website pages very useful as I did the preslope and made the shower pan. Here is just one pic of that process.

Nice job!

Relocated thread to general chat due to not being a question.

You're Hired, when can you start?

Very nice job indeed. It is amazing how some of your carpenter skills carry over to the level of detail in the layout and installation of the tile and accent line. I even like the level of detail in the use of blue tape to mark pinholes in the grout requiring further attention. When I had guys working or me, they used to dread my arrival with a roll of blue tape.

You earned one
