The old “measure once, cut twice” routine. Been there, done that.
How about some epoxy. I’ve seen many different types in various shades of grey and beige that are relatively thick, and you...

I wouldn’t risk taking my “copper tourists” up in my attic or crawlspace. I take them in a virtual tour with the pictures on my phone :) . It’s part of the OCD gene.

You can take off the mud ring that comes with the shower valve. Usually just a plastic clip or a screw that holds it. Depends on the brand and model. It’s only purpose is so drywall compound...

Usually I just sit back and watch to see how these things turn out. Just watched the HVAC video and have to chime in.

Duh! Through the attic- missed read that part. You should be fine with copper in that case so long as it doesn’t get be freezing temperatures up in there. Same with heat; otherwise your cold water...

Hi Wolfgang. Sounds like you’re a real glutton for punishment. I’d have to agree with Cx on not going unprotected copper within a slab, especially new concrete. Cement is very alkaline and will...

I ever really found something I needed to watch that badly

Saw this in a magazine today and wondered if they made that just because they could rather than because they needed to. I’ve never been a big fan of mixing water with electrical. I wonder if the...

Hi Abby,
I do believe it’s the MSI product. Got it from HD. The stone panels are about 3/4” thick and some stick out, so about 1” thick total at the max. Not at all what’d rate as a very thin...

About the half wall (OT)

So what’s the correct method of doing a half wall? I had one in our dining room that always wobbled and needed constant patching until I finally took it down.

Welcome Eric. :wave: Nice to see another RVA member.
1/4” maybe is a bit small. If you prefill the Ditra before burning and back buttering the tiles, you might have enough with the 1/4”. I had...

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?...

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...

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.

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. ...
