Canít wait to see finished table.

You should have dropped your upper a bit and ran your cove across the top of the cabinet. It would have tied in nicely. Not trying to be critical, just something to think about in the future.

I just replaced the doors, the cabinets stayed in place. Good thought though

Got the trusses on and nearly half the sheathing today... I'll be off of this job for 10-12 days because I've got to tend to another remodel we've got scheduled.
The other guys on site are going to tackle the last of the roof framing, interior demo, back framing, basement framing, door and window installation, and siding prep.
Hopefully by the time I get back to it, we're getting in to the siding and drywall.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


Switching gears.... Started in on a mainly cosmetic reno today.
We're tasked with installing new flooring throughout the home, so today we demoed the existing overlaid hardwood in the living room, and the tile in the kitchen.
Tomorrow I'll be in to more floor prep and demo, as we are going to give them a couple of bathroom upgrades as well.
One things for sure... I need an sds with a proper tile lifting bit... My hands are damn sore after busting all that crap out with a bar and chisel all day.

Got the floors done yesterday then started on the walls today. I stood on the corner bench to give myself peace of mind.

Looks great!

Did you lay those pebbles individually or they came as sheets? I'm starting one tomorrow and the sheets don't fit together well at all. It will be too obvious where each sheet ends so I'm thinking I'll have to give myself some space between them to infill with loose pebbles and try to hide the obvious seams.

Thanks!

They are sheets. I played around with them when doing my dry fit so I could get them matched up pretty well.

The little strip on the bench was a last minute thought I had today. I was originally just going to do a sliver of wall tile, then thought "this might look pretty cool" Homeowner loved it

Yeah the strip on the bench looks awesome. The rondec looks really good on there, I've never used it before but I like the look over jolly for there. My pebbles are quite different than those, I'll report back tomorrow on how they go together.

What sort of vanity are you doing there? Looks like itll be in the shower opening a bit? That's quite a lot of action packed into a little bathroom!

I've got the jolly to use at the edges of the shower, the rondec gives a nicer edge in case they actually try to sit on that.

Homeowner got something from IKEA I think, didn't look too big. I'm just here to tile on this one. It is pretty tight, the floor is about 5x5 plus the shower

That's one of the best things about a PITA job... at the end you get to give it one last look and say "you lose"...

Were you able to make the sheets work, or did you have to pull them apart?

Nope, couldn't get them to work. When butted up to each other there was a distinct seam between the sheets and my OCD meter was redlining. I wound up spacing all the sheets roughly 1" apart. I picked apart 3 sheets and used the loose pebbles to fill in all the large spaces. It was tedious but the end result is pretty much seamless.

Inserting the pebbles individually wasn't actually too bad and once I got going I was able to spot the right pebble for the space pretty quickly. I wound up using a 1/4" square notch and then laying all the ridges down so I had roughly 1/8" thick thinset, which worked great for the most part aside from a few spots where I must have been too think and had a lot squeeze through the pebbles (note the tooth brush in the pic). The other tough part was as I was filling in the loose pebbles, I had to keep the leading edge clean so that the thinset wouldn't skin over which was tough with such an irregular edge to work off.

They seem super porous so I'll seal them tomorrow and grout Monday.
