My latest project is to remodel my mother-in-law's bathroom. She wants
a built in shower stall that has no curb at all so as she gets older,
she will not trip on it getting in or out of the shower.
Ok, fine. I can do that. I have very detailed instructions on building
the shower pan and then it's just a matter of tiling the walls and floor.
Thence the problem. She wants to use the 2"x2" tiles that are bound
together in a 12" grid. The shower pan will be inclined 1/4" per foot to
the drain in the center. Since the shower pan will not be flat, I
expect to have to cut the tiles to fit the contour of the floor. Not a
problem if you are using 4x4 of 6x6 tiles, but these things are a bunch
of 2" tiles netted together into a 12" grid.
What problems will I face getting them to match the contour of the
shower pan, and how do you cut them to fit? Just use a wet saw?
I would greatly appreciate any info on this.
