Love it! What did you use to lay the tile? Very Soho loft looking.

THANKS! Love the positive feedback...kind of weird being on the water in CT all alone and all...so its greatly appreciated that you guys respond!

I used mortar for the floor -- VERY messy to say the least...for the ceiling and side walls (which are flexible and not sturdy) I used double sided tape - called "simple mat" -- a bit pricey - but way less messy. The real issue is that nothing in this old mama (or moho) is straight -- so the tiles had to be cut with a dremel and tile cuter...takes much more time than expected but I think and hope I will enjoy it that much more!

We used that mat on our bar in the house and, it works great! It should also flex enough so you wont have any cracking. It looks great and I can't wait to see more pictures! It's going to be a very cool Mo Ho!

Getting some great ideas for my 345. I give you a lot of credit living in it and working on it. It's looking real nice.

Thanks guys! I messed up re-coating the toilet bowl (it was brownish and I was making it white with a home depot kit -- was looking GREAT -- got over excited and it smugged... YKES... so now I have to wait 72 hours, sand it down, and coat it again... what a bummer.
