During the design process however we repeatedly said that we wanted certain aspects of the shower, including the niche to be just like the job he did at the neighbors.
The neighbor’s niche was approximately 3 feet tall with two shelves. The niche box that
We also had some issues with some of the tiles having chips as well as what I considered to be a aesthetic issue with the way the tiles were cut and arranged around the drain. These were all promptly resolved to our satisfaction and we signed off on the finished job on November 6, 2012.
