So I knew I need to do the trims (around 2 compartment sump) before thinset anyways. I always would recommend mixing your own grout & thinset mortar. There is an accent tile break, and after the break the tiles above are offset by about 3/4 inch so the grout lines don’t match up. Top it off in the master shower we had a different tile of the same size going up vertically. You can purchase felt at the local hardware store, and cut it to size to fit the bottom of every piece of furniture that you have. One challenge here is that a letter can be bigger than the whole depth of field at these levels. Now I have two sump pumps, where if one fails the other will get the water out. Two very very different cooking processes are needed. Share ‘Plump up feather pillows by putting them in the tumble dryer for half an hour with two tennis balls,’ she explains.
Instead of using a can of glass spray, squeeze lemon juice into the washing water, and the windows will gleam beautifully,’ she explains. A former head housekeeper at Chatsworth House has revealed her top tips – including using tennis balls in the tumble dryer to plump your pillows. Rinse thoroughly using a high-pressure jet hose and let the deck dry completely. Finally, I had to just let go. I squeegee it after each shower and the only time it is remotely a problem is if I let my water softener run out of salt. By cleaning your floors regularly and sweeping or vacuuming dirt and debris, you will save yourself a lot of time and expense in the long run. I know thinset is not the same but I used a kitchen scale to weigh out both the dry mix and water and marked the cups exactly where it needed to be, the thinset appeared to be the same each time. The same guy did our tile shower and it looks amazing. Now that I decided to keep it, it needed to be placed in it’s final home but I certainly didn’t want to move it before I had the long-since-planned-and-purchased tile installed on the floor under it.
I hired a home theater company to do cat 6 drops to all my rooms an outside for cameras. I ended up paying the HT company for the drops. They were Philips headed screws so no tremendous need to clock them. For me to say I don’t clock Philips screws isn’t completely accurate. The one thing I will say is we had 0 say in contractors for the main work – we purchased the lot from a custom builder – set a price per sq foot along with what would be included for that cost. Again – when we pointed out we were told it was “our cost” to have it fixed. TCNA states that you must have 80% coverage visible when a test tile is pulled off, for dry areas. 16 to cover a square foot of tile. One area I have tried everything and cant get this random square of clear coat off. If you have any back or knee problems etc. I would advise against it. It’s relatively inexpensive to pay someone to do it, like others have said it’s a knee killer and back breaking, plus it’s a darn dirty job.
Hardwood is not like linoleum or even laminate flooring and you cannot use a bucket of sudsy, soapy water to clean it. The sanded grout would often flake out of small cracks, but the non-sanded actually acted like more of a paste and stayed in. Everything was thought out based on logic and flow, it all works as we wanted. The dishwand has a section at the base of it for you to pour liquid inside, which then leaches out of the sponge at the top. They’re heavy. It took four 40lb bags of thinset to do this section. With three or four burners you can have hot, medium, and low zones. Carpets are a better choice for cold climates and you can even consider floor heating. Never use it in a wet area or even a floor, for many reasons. The paint issue you describe was one of my biggest frustrations for months when we moved in – anywhere there is trim (base boards, doors, windows, crown) they sprayed first, then did the walls second and you can see the overlap of 4-6 inches if light hits the area just right. What I can tell is the water was getting around it to the underside.
