tiling FINALLY underway

I cut the door jambs and casings using a 'jamb saw' to fit the tile under the jamb for a cleaner look.
Eric laid out the tiles along the tub platform as starting point without thinset for dry fit check.  The Bosch laser works great for lining them up across the room without having to draw line on the subsurface

This is the 'monolith' above the shower that Eric already tiled with the glass and stone mosaic.  The green  'paint' is Laticrete Hydro-ban.  Its a rubber like paint that prevents water seepage through joints and screw holes.
