Accessible Handicap Shower…..

I just wanted to post this video documentary that the homeowners
emailed me of them and their child.

An Unexpected Gift

after seeing the documentary I am very happy to have done this
special tile job and shower waterproofing for them and Caleb.

I worked my hardest to give them what they wanted
and tried my best to make it perfect.

this was the accessible shower I just built for them………….

there was mold and a rotted sub floor under old laminate floor.
the one piece tub was cut and removed. mold was cleaned up.

joists were cut to make new area lower.
joists were also sistered on both side

Kerdi drain was set to proper height.
new shower sub floor was installed, glued and nailed.
tar paper and metal lath were install prior to mudbed.

Schluter Kerdi was done on the shower walls.
the shower mud bed was packed along with the Ditra.

Kerdi was installed on the shower floor.
wall tile was laid out and started to install.

1×1 shower floor tile laid out to the Kerdi drain.
shower floor tile set with unmodified thinset.

13×13 main floor tile set higher an  1/8″ with shower floor.

Grouted & Complete

A letter from the homeowners:

  1. I have been a member of the John Bridges Tile Forum for only 3 months now and have been reading the postings (threads) like crazy. For those not familiar with this website – it is an online forum for tile setters to help others both in and out of the business to perfect the art of setting tiles.
    As a bathroom renovator I have a keen eye for detail and craftsmanship and can say that in those pages Brian’s work is truly flawless and stands out at the top with only a select few. I have searched all his threads and the smallest details he includes are incredible.
    I am excited to try and incorporate his designs and finishing details into my upcoming projects and only wish he set tile where I live. I believe Brian is a master artisan and a great educator – helping the tile setting industry in a whole raise it’s game.

    The proof is in the pudding.

    Nice work. Brian. If you ever want to move North Just call me.
