All the baseboard tile was put in yesterday, using up the very last of my mortar. I even had time to clean everything up a bit. I'm starting to see the light at the end of this particular remodel. ...

I used Miracle 511 Seal & Enhance on travertine pebbles. I thought it did a nice job of bringing out the colors without looking too shiny. You can find it at Homer's. I think I used 4 coats total and...

Yes, that was a test fit. Now it has that irritating mottled look with plenty of grey slop at the edges. Since I'm using a basic straight pattern for this floor, I've decided to be brave and fill the...

I used green board for my last project because I hadn't found this forum before I bought it. It's only a bit water resistant because of a coating it has. That same coating makes it a pain to sand...

Pete just about has it. There is no new version of the CRX, but this is kind of its descendant. It's called the CRZ. It has the same hybrid drive train as the Insight, but the suspension and handling...

I think I can do it if I notch the non-load bearing stud only. That will also give me a tiny gap into the corner so I can fish the wire into its correct channel. I will have to move a file cabinet in...
