Got the shower put in today, and looks like I'll have the curtain up tomorrow morning. If all grout/caulk/sealant cures as it should we will be enjoying our new shower on Monday! Almost too good to be true

Tile fun:



Ms. VanTiki working the grout in:



You can see a bit of the river rock floor in the above pic. We were going to do the whole floor in river rock - but we learned that it was not compatible with the underlayment we are using. So it is green porcelain for the floor and river rock for the shower. I will (of course) post before-and-after photos when all is said and done.

Aloha folks!

Welp, the B-room project is still chugging along. I hope to press the final slew of tiles this weekend (thank GOD)! Snapped a shot of Ms. VanTiki sneaking a skull tile into the setup to give visitors something to discover whilst parked on the john.



We've been using the new shower for several weeks now and it is heavenly! sooooooo much better than the original. I'll be sure to round up this thread with a before and after gallery once the project is done.

Mahalo,
Henrik "VanTiki"

Looking good. I like the colors and looks like your towel hardware matches the dark tiles you are using. You should get some good pictures when you are done and submit them to a home improvement magazine.

Beautiful tile! You picked the perfect colors. Loved looking at all your pictures. The border collie makes a great decorative accessory too. I'm gonna teach mine to serve tiki drinks.
