Another project in the process #showerstall
Vertical half stagger
One tile at a time one by one mostly cut to fit… 1/2” knotch trowel to spread thinset
It takes time for layout. Making sure a horizontal line n vertical line on layout.
Layout is starting point to corners, edge of perimeter, finish with sloter (gold change to black) (what a head ache).
Surface for prep, was coated with Redguard membrane, over 1/2” harti-backer, screwed to studs n insulation. After bed liner was installed w 2” 3 piece drain.

About Jonathan

Welcome to

My Story

I started out as plumber right out of high school in Walnut, California. Yes a California boy, haha!!! Tanning was a hobby on the beach… Well, I married a plumbers daughter, see I’ve had plumbing in my blood, ever since… Since remodeling countless bathrooms, room-additions house extensions, total home renovation, etc.

Moved to Salt Lake City, in 1996, 22 Years renovating homes, installing rough plumbing down to finish,  installing new fixtures cabinets, countertop, faucets, showers with tubs, shower liner pans (water proved), tile on the floor, walls, even ceilings, steam rooms, jacuzzi, etc. list goes on…

But, this about me in all remodeling trades, carpentry and plumbing are my favorite. I love producing new looks, creating excellent functioning bathrooms and comfortable appearance

Yours truly

I believe I could give great advise and self-help videos on remodeling bathrooms giving visual choices.


My goal is to save time in all in one direction of gathering necessary accessories, accentuate the variety of fixture displace and styles, with reasonable pricing.


All the best,

Jonathan Leslie
