little etched window from the stairway side, it is about 10 feet up so it is not for looking into master bedroom just for natural light.......

sharing a little jig I made up to install my bathroom floor tiles. Now as much as I would like to say that I built the room perfectly square I had no control over the 2 outside walls and I only added the 2 interior walls to complete the room. Now after checking the room seems to be pretty good but I don't want to assume anything when cutting the tiles. I'm installing 12"x 24" tile in a herringbone pattern so there will be lots of small angle cuts all around the outside of the room and I want to make sure the cuts stay consistent from the edge. This little jig is completely adjustable for angle and length...

thanks dude, I do it pretty much by feel, and a straight edge and applying the same amount of thinset evenly helps too... One trick is to spread the thinset in one direction one way and not  in circles like many people do. I also run my finger against last tile edges to remove thinset before I place next tile down. when placing tile I place it about 1/2" from both edges and slide it while pushing down to proper gap thickness.

well waited about 48 hours before I grouted, (the longer the better. I say)...anyway the chocolate grout turned out nicely. during the next few days I will remove the haze while it is curing and work on installing the door and trim then finally start hooking up the fixtures toilet vanity tub ect ect not sure what everyone thinks is best for doorway transition, I always go half way each so when door is closed you can't see other room's flooring. on a side note: wife is getting happier everyday goes by....

thanks T75R, no wet saw just my good ol Milwaukee Fuel grinder with a diamond blade worked like a charm.
