People are more cautious than ever when loosening their purse strings. We’ve all learned that becoming educated consumers not only helps us get the right products, but get them at the right price. Most people don’t know what’s involved in getting their bathrooms remodeled by contractors, and because of that, they don’t know how much it should cost. Here, we’ll discuss the general guidelines for pricing.
Not surprisingly after a few days of this, Boyfiancé and his dad took it upon themselves to install the new toilet. Fasten cement board with special, coated cement-board screws spaced 6 in. on butt joints and every 8 in. in the middle of sheets. In the back you’ll see the two working tail lights, the license holder with a faux light above it. Perhaps it worked in its early day. Now it just looks pretty. Hiding behind the toilet tank was the original, hideous, … Read More
Part of any good bathroom renovation, especially in the case of a walk-through closet and en-suite combination, will include renovating your walk-through closet. Some might advocate re-purposing the walk-through area, so that the bathroom can be expanded, but this would also entail changing the footprint of the original bathroom. If you already have limited storage in the bedroom, this may not be your best solution.
When looking to replace counter tops, go with granite. Most granite is attractive looking, durable, reasonably priced and is able to withhold hot products. Also, because it is so hard, it will not scratch, blister, or crack. It is easy to clean and does not wear down like other counter tops. I was in shock that it was different shades of blue, and that one of those shades was the SAME as my wall color!
However, there are other alternatives that homeowners need to be … Read More
It’s really a pain to blog from my cell phone and my part 1 post a few days ago was really incomplete. Here’s to a sleepless night – I’ve been up for hours – and a couple of hours to do a little blogging.
Tear out the existing piping (Photos 5 and 6). Then frame the 2×6 walls that will contain the new plumbing and the opposite end of the shower base (Photos 8, 9 and 14). It’s easiest to nail the bottom plate to the floor and the top plate to the ceiling, then fill in the studs one at a time by toenailing them in at the top and bottom. Stack the studs directly in front of the old ones wherever possible. Space the studs in the center of the shower about 12 in. apart to leave room for the shower valve and showerhead. The studs behind the … Read More

Rose Cobis purchased this Quonset hut from the city of Kodiak, Alaska, and made it her own. I think Rose has a thing for wood. She’s probably reading a book about wood. Needless to say, there was a line at the slide the whole night of our party! And, yes, the adults can slide too and they do too!! Wow, This was fun! I love the beer can curtain idea. I think I have enough … Read More
Our fixer upper that A and I purchased in Indiana was slowly becoming our dream. Room by room we repaired floors, walls, fixtures, and replaced furniture. When we learned of A’s relocation we knew we would have to start all over again. It’s not in the cards for us to purchase our dream home finished for us, plus it’s more fun to create that dream.
I don’t know if you’ve seen some of that faux wood tile recently, but they are getting GOOD. I had my heart set on this beautiful ash white specimen for much of the debate. I finally had to admit that wood floor tile would simply detract from the beauty of the natural teak-wood siding we were planning for. The toilet had never been sealed to the floor, caulked around, and there was a lot of pee and water that had seeped under it over many, … Read More

The quality has improved over the years as well. Bathroom sinks are also getting a lot of attention these days.
