Lay it out and measure very carefully. But, I, like you, would be hesitant it would still be lined up by the tiled I tiled my way out. Dry lay it and snap some guide lines on the floor. I’d leave...

Ooooo.... I’m jealous. Looks real nice. Very good work.
On the floor heat thermostat, is that set to 41F? Mine only goes down to 55, both of which temps are essentially off mode. Or is it 41C?...

I knew I had a pic with some shims in place. You can see the shim wedge I mentioned on the ledge at the bottom of the picture. Looks like I only used 4; see how the memory fades over the years.... ...

Go ahead and use a stapler. You would need a nail with a decent head so the cardboard doesn’t rip through. That thickness of the head would be almost as much as the shim. More so with a screw.

I like the Rondec.

It’s not inexpensive by any means, but, for me I figured I’m in it this far; what’s a bit more. Comes in different colors and finishes. It’s taken a few good hits with stuff...

Hey Dave,
It seems the apostrophes from the historical backups are getting converted to weird characters. The current post, like John?s above look OK.
Take a look at this for an example: ...

But think of the fun you had. If you hired it out (regardless of the cost), it would have been a week or two and you wouldn’t have any good stories to tell. This way, you made new friends and got...

I can vouch for setting drywall compound: it’s much more water resistant than regular drywall mud, but if it gets wet and stays wet for awhile it gets crumbly.
Here’s an off the wall thought (pun...

I suspect the piece behind the slide in stove is separate from the “wings” on either side. Can you just shift one piece over 1/8” or so? That would be the best easy way. The hard way would be to...

Anodizing leaves a hard coating on the surface of aluminum. If it’s a raw satin anodizing, it will have a light gray tint to it. Anodizing can be used with dyes to leave almost any color though. ...

Is that an electronic shower control on the wall next to the floor heat thermostat? If so, that’s cool. Avoids the long reach into the shower to turn it on and adjust it. I was leery of electronic...
