I probably won't get the shower tore before fall but I will keep updating this thread as I tear stuff up and find new things but I don't think they did a thing right in this house . Bit that is ok cause I got a smoking deal on it and I know how to fix all the wrongs committed.

Thanks Paul. In hindsight I should have done a video walk through so everyone could get the full tour, but that ship sailed

The "thickset" method done right,well almost. The tile was stuck like it was welded but the mudbed itself came up a whole lot easier. I abandoned trying to jackhammer the tiles out one once I realized that it was mud over concrete, it went a lot faster chipping under the mudbed and taking it out in chunks.

Can anyone date this tile?

Not suitable for tile then you just tear it out and start over

Nice drywall work. Reminds me of needed drywall repair in my home. I don't know why but I just hate drywall finishing work. So fussy and time-consuming and at the same time so unpleasant to deal with. I am ok enough at it but not a true master by any means.

Thanks, I was worried that someone wouldn't read the part about that being just the prefill and call me out on poopy mud work. I taped seams, inside corners and put up corner bead yesterday. I am going to start topping everything tomorrow. I am no ninja at it either but I am pretty good and I have a bazooka and the mud boxes so thing go way faster than mudding and taping by hand.

This is the set I have. I don't have all those hand knives though, I use a hawk and trowel if I need anything bigger than a 8"

Shawn I've used the plaster of Paris mixed with premade buckets of mud to overlay over textures or fix bad spots of drywall. Ever try it? The best part is no sanding, the plaster of Paris plasticizes the drywall mud and lets you slick it down after roughly applying it. I can do two coats on a 100sqft ceiling in a day and have it level 5 basically.

I have actually but only for repairs, never tried it on anything large scale. First time I used plaster Paris I mixed to fast it was stone before I even got it to the wall

2nd coat of mud on the seams working on the corners and screw holes now. Fun tip when mudding big areas or doing more than one patch, mix a bit of blue chalk ( don't use red it will bleed through the paint) in with your mud so you don't get lost as to where you are at.

Full gut here we go

Laundry room and master closet

I have come to the sad conclusion that nothing that Jesus the flipper or the floor on top of floor/ceiling methods of the previous tenants did can be trusted.

There were 3 layers of 3/4 plywood in the closet that was wet and trashed all the way down to the joists. It seems like one layer got wet and they tried to dry it out and topped it with another layer and there are 2 throughout the house with 3/4 in hardwood on top of it. I haven't taken up the carpet yet but that is what I found at a wall I took out.
