My Bath Tub Tile Reno - Day 3

I started today by installing Schluter KERDI membrane as a water barrier backer to protect the walls. You adhere it with thinset and it's like putting fabric on sheetrock. I love it because it is so much easier than dealing with cement board or 1/4" hardibacker board (hate that stuff).

Then I set a level base board on which to set my tiles. You never build from the bottom. You always set a line above and then cut tiles to fit below because nothing is square or level.

These tiles will dry tonight.

Tomorrow, I will take off the base board, then cut the bottom tiles to fit while also build the decorative tiles I have to go above. I'm really pleased with how this is turning out.
