Heavy Duty construction adhesive and temporary mechanical fasteners work perfect for the oak pickets on wood and concrete floors. Keep moisture to a minimum by applying the thinset tile adhesive to the back of the tile, instead of the substrate. Use a semi moist grout mix and pack grout joint with a brick joint tool for minimum grout shrinkage and moisture against the oak pickets. Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your answer.

Do you have some pictures during the construction posted somewhere?

If yes.....can you give me a link to them?

Thank you again!

Thank you-it's beautiful. I live in NY about 2 hours north of the city. Does it take an installer skilled in this type of flooring to install it successfully?

An experienced tile guy should be able to do it. We can coach him through the install without a problem.
