Re: Bringing An Abandoned House Back Online


Just about got plumbing finalized today, here is a teaser of the bathroom. Customer dropped in and changed the kitchen cabinet configuration so had to deal with that. It's still up in the air if we will be doing butcher block or a laminate countertop. Never played with butcher block, so that's the one I am rooting for.

Started sanding floors Friday. Got lazy and took today off. I'll probably go in and do some sanding tomorrow in the corners and other areas, so I can start to stain.

Starring to look like a house.

Re: Bringing An Abandoned House Back Online


These pics are shared with customers and shown better when I hold phone vertical, unfortunately that means when I post here it's sideways.

I don't know why it does that with the pictures, even if you post from your PC when you open them to resize they appear in the normal position but when you post them, they come out sideways. Not all, but some...Had the same problem when I was posting my vacation pictures.

Re: Bringing An Abandoned House Back Online


Guess what i'm doing today...12x24 vertical layout, 1/3 offset 1/8 spacing. It's a marbled porcelain tile, and I am hoping I can make one final plea to the customer today to flip them horizontal...but i'm not paying haha so he will get what he wants

Wow, great job! It's amazing when you compare the condition of the house when you started and now. These would make an amazing Before/After gallery.

Re: Bringing An Abandoned House Back Online


Ready to wipe it off, and apply grout tomorrow. Turned my phone sideways just for you guys. New guy pulled the spacers when cleaning mortar out of the grout lines and never put them back. The the back wall and right off a hair. I offered to redo it, but customer said it still looked better than the last tile guy he had.
