Got My Floor In :) Sans Grout

enduringOctober 31, 2012

High everyone. Good news. At last my floor is set! I have cleaned the stone, put sealer on it, twice.

I still have to clean the thinset out of the grout spaces better, then grout it. I will caulk around the threshold.

The tile is Brazilian black slate that I cut in half from 12x12. I have radiant heating under this.

Here it is:

Space ship's view:

Trust me, I've got some lippage going on:

I will be slowly posting the progress of this extremely slow remodel.

Thanks so much you guys. I could not have even imagined doing this if it wasn't for all the help and encouragement from you all. This is a great forum, but we all know that don't we!

Updating this thread to include at least one picture of the floor without the grout. Someone had wanted to see, and noted the pictures where missing. I don't know what i meant by a "spaceship view" maybe too much wine that night.

maybe this is the space ship view:

Wow, that was a year ago?! How long have I been lost in renovationland?

Still looks stunning, one of my favorite floors.

Yes and now I'm in the same country you are, with my second bathroom that I swore I wasn't going to do for several years. But I tore it out within the month of finishing this one, with plans drawn up before I finished this 1st one.

Now I take a bath every day in here because the shower, etc on the new one is getting done at a snails pace. But thats how I roll :)
