Wow... busy, busy, busy. I'm getting tired just reading this!

I haven't tried Hardibacker, have always used Durock and get good results. While you at the big box, you might want to get one of those carbide tipped scoring tools. It's about $7 and you'll find plenty of uses for it besides scoring backer board.

I swear you can score concrete with this tool, then turn around and cut glass with it.

HaridBacker is down. That was tough work! My legs and back are killing me today! Not even Aleve or a Martini helped

Marble goes down this weekend. I've got this week to plan how to do that.

How about sealer? Do I just seal the grout? Can I just use a small artists brush to apply the sealer directly to the grout?
