bath, remodeling, tile Setting tile is messy work 23 October 2015 Steve Leave a comment The tile setters are almost done. Today’s crew is Ernesto and Samuel. They are working in the master shower. It is messy work. The front entry is almost finished. The fireplace hearth is set on the foundation slab. Ernesto trowels tile cement around the window as he prepares to mount the metal Schluter edging. Samuel grinds a cut into the Schluter edging strip, using an LED worklight as illumination — reminiscent of the paintings of an 18th-century factory, working by firelight.
