    Hello tilers
    glad to have found this forum.

    I am doing a small wet-room and starting to scratch my head at
    a few problems. So hope I can ask for a bit of experienced advise.
    I have put all wall and floor work in and the tray.
    Used backer board the are some uneven old walls also.
    I have put in UFH, and tiled over it.
    I put a screed of flexible tile adhesive on to the ufh. before
    i found this forum, so hope that is ok. then mosaic tiles down.
    and grouted.
    My first question is I have started the walls, and saw a lot of advise to
    put silicon in the corners. 2 or 3mm. which i understand now is because
    it expands when warmed, so do I need to pick out the grout around the edge of the floor arr. I will try to upload a pic.

    Hi thank you for replying, I have tried to get a few photos in.
    it is a small space, the one of the floor open wouldn't download.
    the one with the niche is where I am at and don't really want to put in
    a 40mm slice in the right corner where the laser is but because of the niche and the left wall I have lined it up so that there is 70mm each side of the niche ie black marks. I have already started with a (i think running bond pattern is the turn) so need to keep to that.
    the wall on the back right of second pic is out at the top by 30mm ish i was lined it up so the widest space at the top, will not end up with a slither added so lined up the laser to the first line in not the wall.
    any ideas gratefully appreciated.
    this is my first and it is my own project.

    You need to see what the next row of tiles would line up like as well

    hi adey
    the next row will not sit on top of the first, but i have looked at that, it would be the black line to the right of the niche, and the first line would be the black line left of niche, and the next tile above the 40mm
    laser line would line up in the center of the bottom 200mm, so 1400mm plus joint.

    You want to be tanking over those fixings before you tile.
