    lap joint - hmm, thinking like a carpenter ;-)
    In this, would you lay the stone on the sill, see where the tile would butt up (pencil) and then grind a reveal under the stone sill....

    To make the back of the stone look nice where it meets the window it needs to be back cut as well a few degrees.
    A picture describes a million words. Got any ?
    Are you saying put a reveal into the frame --- if the material allows, to slide and *lock* the stone ontop as well...

    Back to homework. While not familiar with the Noble/Schul Sealants---for the window.......I'm inclined to look at tried and true performers. I have to see what the equivalent of a interior grade application would be comparative to NP1/NP1, Vulkem 116, Solar Seal. I've used all these with great sucess....and I suppose interior is fine as long as I'm okay with the dissipation aroma.

    All those exterior grade stuff is good stuff. They just stink as they outgas.
    My plan is all liquid but I was planning to use membrane on area like the window and niche.

    I suppose one should stick with their manuf. recommended sealant when not know how the chemical composition of the latter *tried and true proven* sealants would behave with their membrane material....from a systems approach..

    Thanks JW. Pics speak a milliion words. Your pics were *more or less* what I have in mind, re: sheet membrane as the flashing.

    I'm going to *google kerdi fix* cause I can think of 10 zillion other great urethane sealants I can buy and use that are proven performers for me.
    VOC....aside.

    Is that a triple deck staggered niche u built there ?

    Most urethanes skin over quickly. Kerdi Fix is not a easy find at the supply houses around here, and if I was to get my hands on it, I would be very suspect on it's production date. Tons of good/great Urethanes like Vulkem, Sonneeborn, SS, etc. I've used them when sealing perimeter holes, if not sealing on the inside, the sides of a window during rough framing. Kerdi Fix is just hard to get, probably will be outdated on the stuff if I do get it, and well, as you know, in the tile world if not anything using construction materials, it's good practice to check batch code dates
