And if I'm not mistaken you install electrical systems, low voltage systems, wiring and the lot?

Maybe you can help Craig with the finer points of home renovations. If I tell him, he won't listen.

This is a small section of the front of the house. The other 3 sides of the foundation are above grade. House breathes just fine.

What type of screw? Course thread? Fine thread? Do you use a stud finder or not? Did you test the screw before installing? Use any wax or soap to ease installation? Was it philips or standard?

You need to know these things....

We pulled down an Ikea cabinet the other day my clients installed and the home owner drove in a 3 1/2" #10 wood screw to anchor the bracket on one stud. Lucky for him he didn't hit anything in the wall.

Screws? Ha! I only use galvanized 1/2"x8" lag bolts with double the washers and nuts tightened one on top of the other until I run out of thread...

Installed some under cabinet lighting in this bathroom.

Used a brass flat panel strip for a Heat Sink and just double sided tape to install.

Keep the LED strip back 6" from the face of the drawers.

I believe it's so they last longer and don't over heat.

Some Mapeband and reinforcing fabric in the floating bench today

Installed a 3/4" L bracket as a heat sink for this cabinet on the same job

You can see the light through the window

Same warm led lights for kick and electric mirror install. I'm loving this FibaFuse drywall paperless tape

John, as good as the tile work is the drywall patch is needing some attention.

Lol

I suspected some heat over that pass!

I'm on it. I'm going to sand the edges and give it the first of hopefully two top costs.

Had some cracking on my old work that I Need to fix up as well. Looks like the glass door hardware stressed the top corner of the entry way.

Re: What Tile Project Are You Working On?


Well it ain't gonna win any awards but I'm happy with it. Laid the heated floor mat and buried it in Novoplane, it worked well but still left hills and valleys up to 1/8" that I had to compensate for.

Did all my cuts with a Sigma 2B3 and a grinder. Found some Ultraflex LFT, used LASH from home depot to, 1/2x1/2 notch trowel.

Only problem is I got more thinset on the face of the tiles than the back...got a lot of scraping tomorrow.

Couldn't have done it without all the helpful advice from Angus...cheque is in the mail!











PS I learned that setting tiles sucks, I ruined my pants and my fingers and knees are killing me.

Heated floors are always a PITA, unless you're magical with SLC.
