You're a brave, brave person, Karen, when it comes to contractors (present company excluded) I'd not assume anything.

I'd not try to go from the bottom up, Corey. You'd need 1.25" screws and they will sink into the 1/2" ply (which is actually 15/32nds) so the tips will likely break through the top of the 3/4...

Installing rounded corner shelves of the same material as the vanity top is a great idea, Karen, helps pull the over all design together. If I were doing an alcove tub/shower I'd probably put two in...

It has not gotten better, PC, and to make matters worse they now like to remind you how bloated it is by making you pay for it each year. At the time I bought it we had 3 teenagers in the house and...

I've not read of anyone using drywall compound over Kerdi board, Kelly, so I'm not sure how to answer that question. I do believe, however, that Kerdi band over the seam will result in a noticeable...

Great photo, VB. Unfortunately not any kind of Cedar or Douglas Fir. Appears to be pine and, given that knot, perhaps #2 pine.

Welcome, VB.



Yes.

But first you really ought to determine if your floor framing is strong enough to support a tile floor. Joist width, depth, on-center spacing, free span. Our handy-dandy...

Hi Karen,

Mine is just under 100 Sq/Ft. Not "big" by today's standards, but big enough for a space that I don't spend a lot of time in. The accent I used is glass, which absorbs no moisture, and...

The foam pans are very light weight, Augmont. And are easy to dent, too, until you put tile on them which distributes the point loads.

I recently finished my master bath remodel and used a foam...

The dark grout lines in the green tile sure looks like mold to me, Evan.

Did you spray any common mold and mildew cleaner on it first? If yes, did it lighten the dark lines at all?

Any idea...
