What It's About:

Being able to see the future would be handy. Especially while framing and marking tight and different tiled spaces like backsplashes and roman, curved-front and zero-clearance showers. Bathroom “waterproofing” is vital! Mark will show you how to create incredible shower spaces while taking into consideration trench drains, thresholds and other details that are vital to these designs. He’ll discuss when it’s time to ask questions—What is the shower pan? Is there a tile band? Are the tiles ceramic or glass? What thin set is required?—and when to verify specs. Learn tricks to keep the workflow moving from crew tool organization to light switches that survive change orders to foolproof shower niche layouts.

What You'll Learn:

  • Story poles.
  • Bathroom waterproofing, shower niche layouts, device-free backsplashes and simple design options for better show spaces.
  • Cabinet sizing for balanced design.
  • Tile tips and trash-saving framing tricks.
