This is the 1st part of a Luxurious Outdoor Shower and in this instructable you'll see: How I installed the "Natural Stone" and the "Tiles". The length of the shower is 200cm & the width 100cm.

Step 1:

Firstly, for the mortar, add sand, cement, a little lime and water.

Step 2:

Then, with a plaster mixer, mix well, until all ingredients become one single mixture.

Step 3:

Once you have designed, with a marker, the limits of the shower on the floor, place the concrete blocks one by one.

Step 4:

Leave a gap at some point to lead there the water from the shower.

Step 5:

When you finish, let it dry for one day.

Step 6:

Wash the natural stones, on both sides, so that they can be placed securely on the mortar.

Step 7:

Place the stones one by one and give them a slight slope towards the point where we have made the gap.

Step 8:

When you finish, let it dry for one day.

Step 9:

Mix the grout, a little cement and a little sand, with water...

Step 10:

...to put it between the stones.

Step 11:

When you finish, let it dry for a while.

Step 12:

Now take a putty knife and remove the grout that there is on the stones.

Step 13:

Drag a wet sponge across the whole surface very softly, so the grout and the stone to be at the same level.

Step 14:

Repeat the same process several times until it is completely clean.

Step 15:

For the tiling, first place the ones on the side and then the ones on the top of the concrete blocks.

Step 16:

After you have sprinkled water on the concrete blocks, evenly spread with a plastering trowel with teeth the tile glue.

Step 17:

Before you place the tile, dip it in water and then press it until it is aligned with the others.

Step 18:

Let approximately one cm between them so that we can place the grout later.

Step 19:

When you finish, let it dry for one day.

Step 20:

Place the grout with a putty knife and press well to fill all the gaps.

Step 21:

After a while, take a wet sponge and clean the gaps very smoothly.

Repeat the same process several times until it is completely clean.

Step 22:

Let it dry for one day and then wash the whole construction very well.

Step 23:

At the end paint the stone and the grout with a stone varnish.
