Whoops! Floor not level, tiles need to be removed...any advice?
So upsetting. DH's birthday today, and we were planning to celebrate by finishing off shower by installing the glass doors. Yeah, I know we live the high life!
While I was making his favourite cheese and ham scones, he was measuring, said he'd had a nightmare last night... and lo and behold, realized that the 5' X 3' base is not square to the tile walls. What happened we discovered is that the floor slopes towards one end by ~ 3/8" in that 60".
So, that by the time you get up to the top of the glass doors, the difference between the edge of the glass and the wall would be over 1/2". Crap! My stomach is twisted in knots, I realize in the scheme of things not the end of the world, but just so disappointing!
The only solution we can see is to remove the bottom row of tiles, plus at least one floor tile so that we can lift up the base (solid cultured marble) and shim it level. DH is now banging away trying to remove tiles which he says I will never have to worry about falling off, ie they are not coming off easily!
Any words of advice, encouragement, sympathy? Guess the only way to get those tiles off is to break them?
