The first to go from the middle of the longest wall, parallel to the wall at the exact center of your room. The other line should be perpendicular to the first between the adjacent walls. Using as a guide wall longest reduce the effect of an uneven soil zone.




Extends above the ground level layer in a thin-starting point, keeping a portion of the chalk line visible for use as a reference. Using the end of the notched trowel to spread the layer with a thickness of about 1/4 inch.



Place the tile outlet at the corner of your chalk line and handle it by placing it in place on the mortar. If you want, you can put spacers on each side and add more tiles, keeping them level with which you have already placed and with lines.
