Bathroom Remodel #4: Complexly Marble-ous!

Blog entry by Dan Lyke posted 01-02-2015 07:33 PM 13427 reads 0 times favorited 42 comments Add to Favorites Watch
« Part 3: Rub a dub dub Part 4 of Bathroom Remodel series Part 5: Toilet Paper Holder »

Cut a board to protect the tub, put a rim of FortiFlash around the bottom of the board to protect the tub, and then applied Hardiebacker™ around the tub:

Mortared the Hardiebacker™ seams:

And then started with coats and coats of Red Guard.

This was after the first coat applied, but as we did more and more coat and got to the approved thickness (which we were supposed to be able to get in two coats(!)), I started googling around and discovered that other people have had the same issue: It goes on way thinner than they say, and even when you hit the appropriate thickness, and calculate that thickness over the area, the coverage information given by the manufacturer is totally wrong. So I overbought. Not a big deal, but…

Built some jigs so we could get accurate diagonals on the borrowed saw:

And then started with the tile…

.

Short version: If anyone ever tells you that it's possible to lay 18" real stone tile on a diagonal in a bathroom? Tell them no. But here's the hardware in place and the epoxy grout (which is horrible and terrible to work with and I really really hope it's worth the pain) installed:
