Welcome. Let me ask again that you change your permanent signature line to a first name for us to use.

Helps to keep all the project questions on one thread so folks can see what you're working on and what's been previously asked and answered. A moderator can give it a more generic title any time you'd like to suggest one.

Like PC, I thought the simple solution would be a flexible joint under the door. But it appears to me the existing tile floor stops in the center of the door on one side, but not on the other side. Is that the case, or am I misreading the photo?

Learned something and glad I caught it...

I was doing a mock up with the 7 pieces I cut and placed them on a table just looking at them.

There was one piece that was thicker than all the ithers. Significantly.

It wasn't from a crown or cut edge vs. Factory edge...

It was legitimately at least 1/16th thicker.

Today at the store armed with one piece of thinner and the thicker piece...
I compared it to the bull nose ends. They were thicker like the thick piece.

So i noticed the difference was different lot#'s or batch #'s.
And sure enough all tike in the case was of the same size...smaller or larger but definitely a difference with batch numbers.

Glad I caught that instead of in the middle of the job.

What happened was we grabbed a sample 3 weeks ago . Then I grabbed a sample a week ago not oaying attention to anything but the style and finish.

Do you intend to correct the existing tile installation such that the joint is all under the door, Wolfgang?

Depending upon the size of those tile installations, the 1/4" movement accommodation joint there might be the better choice.

My opinion; worth price choice.

When that tile job was done I never thought far enough ahead to on transitioning into the bathroom (the subject room)
Now that I see that...at the very least I need to square up that tile line. I'm not quite sure how to cut a piece of tile againt the edge of the door frame like that...and that's where the major issue is. Those particular edges especially the ones right against the door threshold
I do have a saw with an adjustable shoe that I could cut the tile (square it up) without cutting further into the hardi board.

But the door threshold is a problem with this. I can only cut so far over because of the shoe.

I'd REALLY like to avoid cracking or ruining a whole piece of tile there

Ideas please

Looks to me as though you might be able to remove one small triangle of existing tile at the south side of the door in your exterior photo, cut the rest of the tiles in place, then cut that small piece on a wet saw or similar, and replace it. There is certainly a chance of breaking that piece of tile while removing, of course. You have any spare tiles from that previous installation?

Cutting a clean line across the doorway should be doable if you have the right blade on the right angle grinder. Not sure what saw you have in mind. Never a slam dunk, but it can usually be done.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Where should I cut this line? In other words the proper spot for the transition in relation to the door threshold...
I color coded it ...

Thanks

Green, Wolfgang.

Proper location of the transition allows you not to see the other floor from either side with the door closed.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Attachment 224873Made the cut....but...


I've run out of room with that cutting tool I used otherwise I'd keep going right into the door frame

Is there a bit/blade idea for the remainder?

I have a multi tool and a dremel as well. Any buts/cutters/wheels for either that would work right there?

Thx
