Default installation ?

Do I snap together the whole room of tile and then grout everything? Or do I grout as I go. I'm having trouble snapping the tile together. When I hammer a new tile in, all of them shift.

Try positioning yourself on top of the already installed tiles and see if that helps to keep the field from shifting. Until the assembly gains some weight as it grows tiles may shift a little during assembly.

You might also apply a little soapy water to the tray edges to lubricate the tongues during assembly.

Sometimes inserting a 1/4" tile spacer in the grout joint will help "lock" the tiles in place untill you get a larger area assembled.
