Waterproofed the walls.

A little salty about the floor but it should last for the rest of human civilization, you know?

That would be a yes, use an epoxy grout if you want that thing to last

That is the plan, my dude. The tile is porcelain, which is not porous. That's why I'm rolling the dice.

Also expensive and I don't want to dig it out.

I'll dig it out if/when I have to.

Rain is kicking my ass. I need a nice day or two.

It doesn't have to be that nice... just not wet.

Not trying to hijack your thread, just my bathroom I'm renovating.

Nice. Doing home improvement projects is a good thing.

I'm going to hopefully finish the tiling today, but I won't be able to get to the grout until after it dries. And I have to find a place that has epoxy grout because home depot doesn't carry it. It's going to rain before that and I haven't perfected keeping the water out of the fountain. It's been a headache and I've had to replace some of the tiles on the floor because of water damage.

It looks good, though.

Finally got the tile down. I have to clean the tiles and the grout lines and find a place that sells epoxy grout... and hope the rain doesn't do any damage in the meantime.
