Bathroom Floor Tiling Project – Custom Bathtub Tiled Skirt

Measuring and Marking Flange Cut in Tile

In yesterday's article we wrote and showed in the pictures how Bennett temporarily placed some of the floor tiles from the walls near the toilet flange in the ground. The purpose of this was to sketch with a pencil the round cut that he would need to make into the floor tiles from SnapStone which would be placed on either side of the flange. Below is another picture of Bennett in action, if you will, with this task. So, here we are with the floor ready for tiling; well … [Read more...]

Bathtub Faucet Spout Replaced

Bathtub Spout Replacement

Yesterday we showed how easy, surprisingly easy, to remove the spout for our bathtub which had the diverter jammed. Today, we finish the job and attempt to install the replacement spout. I returned from one of the several plumbing supply stores in our area with the replacement. It was very similar in design to the one which lasted less than 3 years. Can you tell which one is the replacement spout? It is the one on the left in the picture below. You can see how the screw inside the spout is … [Read more...]

Caulking Bathroom Door Frame Completed

Door Frame With Caulking 1

Yesterday, we wrote about the absence of caulking between the door frame and wall of our shared bathroom, leaving the up to 1/4 inch gap exposed and the entire job looking unfinished. For comparison purposes, here is a picture from yesterday along part of the frame showing the gap which should have been finished with caulking. Now, look at the difference once the caulking is applied. It is not  hard task or one which takes more than a few minutes. Just make sure you have … [Read more...]

Caulking Bathroom Door Frame

Door Frame Without Caulking 1

When we purchased our current house more than 2 years ago, it underwent a massive renovation in every, yes every, room in the home ... and outside as well. Heck, that is what got us to start writing about home renovation tips, home maintenance tips and home energy conservation tips for more than two years now. As part of this major home renovation, we replaced all of the interior doors, including the one to the public or shared bathroom. However, the contractor did not complete the job, … [Read more...]

Moen Mirrorscapes Installation

Moen Mirrorscapes Installed 01

Yesterday we wrote about two bathrooms in my friend Harvey's place which he was renovating, both of which contained mirrors that did not have a border.

Relocated Double Bath Towel Rack

Yesterday we wrote about the re-installation of the double bath towel rack to its new position in our en suite bathroom.

Today we write about one of the many home maintenance tips which are easy to do. Most bungalows, just like the one we call home, are short on space because any living space which is not in the basement is all on one floor. So, in our master bedroom's en-suite bathroom we had installed a double towel rack by the contractors as part of creating the en suite in the first place. Planning. A double towel rack holds two towels at once; it will need to hold double the weight of a regular … [Read more...]
