Hi Greg.

It would probably work to do as you describe, but I'd set up a ledger on front of that bench just like it was a wall. IMHO, it's best to do course by course so minor adjustments along the...

In many cases, moving register would not be all that difficult. But need to know more about the structure. Tiling around things almost always looks like a oops to my eye, FWIW.

Is this a concrete...

1. Gaylon, I was thinking specifically of vertical intersection of curb to wall. Typically that's a substrate wrapped with Kerdi that creates the pan, but you've got a kinda different scenario.

My mind's eye likes what it sees with regard to the curb, but the pragmatist in me wonders how well one could create a watertight pan. Think flood test or backed up drain. I dislike the idea of caulk...

Hi Gaylon.

Things I'll offer up for consideration.

1. Will this be permitted? AHJ may have something to say about curb height relative to drain grate.

2. Technically, Kerdi is not designed...

My thoughts?

Penny tile poses some unique challenges, both from an installation perspective and also appearance.

How to finish edges if the layout produces slivers? Geometrically they require...

I'm glad you trust him, but your insurance company may not feel the same should you suffer a loss due to fire. And fires are never fun unless they're the camp variety.

I'd encourage you to do your...

Welcome Allimltry.

Before I got too far down the road, I'd want the blessing of the fireplace manufacturer. Many that I've seen have a specific requirement for distance from top of firebox to...

Karen, I had to laugh at "Defecto". A different thing from "Deflecto", the defecto is something, innate or learned, that resides inside of good craftspeople.

To you question, no, the Deflecto...

The sistering you're proposing would be significant work. Remove and replace most all electrical and plumbing in the affected area.

Robbie, I like to have lumber blocking or studs anywhere shower enclosure will intersect wall. For sure where door hinges.

In a case like yours, I'd probably put a flat 2x4 or2x6 next to the...

Were it me, Eddy, I might tighten up those clearances some. Maybe shoot for 1/16" everywhere, but it's not critical. Slope looks fine. Template is a great idea. I would sometimes send drawings to...

To each their own, I guess.

Original poster was talking glass top slide in range, not drop in stainless cooktop. Kinda two different animals, eh?

Ged, were it me I imagine I'd not push range against wall. Notching tile would be my last resort as it gives Murphy the upper hand should the range need to be replaced. Indeed, it's at least part of...

I'm guessing you removed 1.5" of countertop and replaced with 2cm quartz?

If that's the case, I might approach it a little differently. I'd shim the top of cabinet to correct height for existing...

I fail to see the logic in " 130 cfm would be overkill". It's just a number. Seems like that's saying it's preferred to have the stink waft around for a while. If it's a size of fan box thing, that's...

You could tile over it with bullnose tile. Another option would be to have a piece of stone or quartz cap cut and polished at a fabricator.
