Before and after pics of projects

Since we have threads like Craziest custom tile design , Worst tile job , Your work in progress .... I think a '' Before and After Pics '' will have a very good fit along them .

I hope that this will allow us to see and appreciate how much changements and upgrades , either welcomed or unwelcomed , make a difference and the investments needed are not in vain .

Let's enjoy together and hope others will share theirs experiences and of course ..... the most important ..... PICS.

I guess I have to start with something.... ok then , here it goes.

We can combine this into the work in progress or move it to the mud box, Roberto, your choice.

I think we have plenty of non-technical tile threads in the hangout already, including the work in progress and craziest design threads, eh?

Kelly,

I think it should be moved into the Mud Box , so please do so.
Thank you.

P.S. Didn't think that professional hangout is only for technical discussion .

You'll have to forgive him roberto, he can be kinda fussy.

Like how the header on the hangout says "technical discussion on tile, stone, and other building trades..." but he once moved a very interesting discussion on baseboard to the mud box because it wasn't discussion on tile...I don't frequent the mud box, so I never saw that thread again...

Good ol' cx.......

No problem Luke.

I think there are many and very different stories -- good or bad ones --behind any renovation or new construction , either in improving or recovering from screw ups during the process .

Since pics reflect '' the true image '' for the much needed upgrades , let's have the pics .

Oh , ok ... more of ...pics.

So , I hope that gives a real '' true image'' . You start with an idea and ...voila
Oops , I forgot the final look.... ok maybe at a later time.

And of course , technics involved may be discussed .

Well here is my .02 on the subject. I personally think most tile related topics should be discussed in the advice board. There is a thread right now in the pro's hangout that is about denshield in a steamer, and one about putting kerdi/not putting kerdi all the way to the shower head. There are a lot of DIY'ers that could benefit from reading either. I think that certain technical items/methods we choose to discus should be in the pro's hangout, some of them may not be useful to DIY'ers, and some DIY'ers prolly shouldn't read (like tile directly over ply Bill ) Remember this site is here for pro's that may have questions from time to time, but mainly for the DIY'er.

As far as other trades goes, that could go either way. It does say that in the pro's hangout description, but this is also a tile forum not a general construction forum. I don't read everything inna mudbox but I generally check it out to see it there is a thread title that catches my eye.

Ultimately this forum is partly CX's though (I believe he has a piece anyway) and if not then his tenure here, the amount of posts, and the amount of help he gives give him the right to put the darn thread anywhere he wants.


BTW - as a contractor that doesn't just do tile I like the idea for this thread Roberto, and hope it survives. I am currently remodeling a 4-plex that was in real bad shape. I am not making it fancy by any stretch, it is in the worst part of town we have, but we are making it nicer and I will post before and after pics when I am done.

If you prefer to post your before and after pics in the other thread , I see no reason for this comments -- read smilie --.

The idea behind this is to show the difference , not the progress from before to after. But of course you knew that .

I post "Before and After" tile work pictures in the "Work in Progress" thread.
its suiting and another thread on tile work isn't needed. if you break out different names of work the thread counts would get ridiculous. someone tried to start a "powder room pic thread". they would just fall to the bottom.

but here's some "Before and After" picture for your ................

The DIY visitors have equal access to what's in the Hangout, too, Levi, and I agree there are things in there I'd just as soon they not see.

But I do agree that all the project-type questions in the Hangout, those about how to terminate a backsplash layout, or how to prepare a floor for tile, or how to waterproof a shower, should all be in the Advice forum where the new visitors are more likely to be looking about.

And I've recommended this to my fellow moderators at least once and been on the very short end of the vote. The consensus seems to be that y'all might be embarrassed to ask your questions in the shallow end, although a few of you do post your threads in the appropriate forums rather than just posting everything that comes to mind in the Hangout because that's where you hang out.

I move far fewer threads from the Hangout than would be my wont given a free hand.

And thanks for the vote of confidence.

Since the DIYers can get to every thread on the site, I find the exercise kind of mute.... besides, a 16 page discussion over outlet/receptical screws doesn't make any of us look too good.
