Thinsets

Thank you CX.
Just learned that my tile has arrived, and I've been reading up on thinsets, but am still a bit overwhelmed by the choices. I am setting 12x24 rectified porcelain on Ditra over...

Replacing subfloor--tongue and groove considerations

Dan, I'm not sure the exact length of the glass panel but I have done some research on brackets and will likely use some to assist in holding it in place on the floor.

I upgraded to Advantech for...

Bathroom floor transition to curbless single slope shower

CX I cut the joists in the shower area after sistering them twice each. The shower area is supported below by two bearing walls. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

~1 1/8" room height transition??

Thanks so much CX. I took your advice and placed a new order at HD.

subfloor concerns after sistering/between joist deflection

I'm finally done fixing the joists in my bathroom (originally 2x10 DFir/16OC/L416 deflecto), ended up double sistering each joist (the full length of room) with a 2x10 and a 2x6. I also added full...

joists that aren't plumb

Well Dan to me that just means you're probably not in the trades/doing it in your free time, which makes it more impressive!

Subfloor removal next to bearing wall perpendicular to joists

I guess after my near-miss I should make sure that I'm not missing something when it comes to the other walls in the bathroom.

Can I cut out the subfloor flush with a bearing wall that is...

extra joists

Thank you Dan and CX both for the tips. This morning I noticed that there was an extra joist running toward the other side of the house (pic) to support another wall that is right on top of it.

Forgot to ask-when reinforcing that partition wall from below, what would you do exactly?
By cross blocking, do you mean "X" bracing? Perhaps every few feet in the joist bay under that wall?

Flattening with sistered joists, floor under wall?
