Here's a light one. Installed toilet bowl and caulked around the base. Left a gap in the back. Used plain white silicone reasoning it would match the toilet. And it does but the bowl needed...

If there's a long one, there might be a short one. Or trim one on a wet saw. Put that short one next to the long one. The grout line will jog a bit but that might be less noticeable than one...

Tub surround is complete. We tried it out and nothing has burst into flames yet but I do see a non-critical problem. The enameled metal (Americast) tub is a bit warped so the front part adjacent to...

If you haven't set tile before, get an extra sheet of CBU or just use a spare piece of drywall or plywood if you have one laying around and practice setting on that. Buy some cheap crappy tile and...

I plan to screw it to a wall through a spacer plank. There's already blocking inside the wall for that purpose. I might not know what "freestanding" actually means with vanities.

Thanks.

I ended up cutting out the bad silicone section. It was a few hours old so hopefully the new stuff will meld with the wet stuff in the back if not in the front.

Next step is to set the...

toilet flange attachment to floor

If I'm using Fusion Pro with grout release on small areas at a time, do I need to re-apply the grout release on the overlap between the area that's already grouted and the area I'm about to grout?
