installing large format tiles
Large format tiles are tricky to work with and quite heavy. Only people with tiling experience should attempt to install them.
In order to prevent the tile from moving away from the wall (due to the weight), I needed to apply some pressure to the tile overnight until the thinset hardened. To create a brace, I screwed together a scrap 2x4 and 2x6 of a length that was slightly smaller than the distance between the two walls. I used a shim between the tile and the brace to create the needed, steady pressure on the tile.
