I just started this job last Thursday, a week early because the shower was leaking into the dining room. This room is more a non custom with new fixtures, cabinets, Tile floor, Veritek shower wall surround and tub refinishing. My good friend Steve321 just recently signed up for CT and he's doing the refinishing on this job :thumbup:

I peeled up the vinyl... it was on top of masonite paneling, on top of original toungue & groove wood floor, on top of a ton of lathe strips as shims and then the sub floor :furious:

In 7 feet the floor was out 1.5 inches and the other was was running 5/8" out in 5 feet. I used 4 bags of 86 Latilevel

I don't like to paint very much but either way, they definately wanted to do the things that they are able to do. I wasn't supposed to start this until yesterday so the cabs won't be in till the 9th so I have a short week coming up tiling baseboard, trim door down etc... and then ill be back to hook up the cabs and top. Great customers too! The Mr. brews wine and beer so I get stuff every other day to take home so I will have no issues going back for final pics! :laughing:

Angus, I won this the other day... it was at my doorstep when I came home from work :whistling:
I hate winning things I have no use for...:laughing:

Sometimes I gather too much thinset goodies. I have thrown out 5 bags of freebies this year. :sad:

Hey, how thick is the Dal Seal? I'm thinking it's like a thick Kerdi, or at least it looks like Kerdi from the pics.

The only issue I had with the 86 was uncontrolable, where my new ply met the old floor by the tub skirt had a small gap in which I put 2 layers of mesh tape. But some ran down so there was a few tiny holes in which I skim coated before I set the membrane...
