Took a few minutes for some impromptu practice.  Got a ways to go to get back the skills I’ve let atrophy.  5x8 miniature IPSC at 12-15 yards.

Tile guy is supposed to be coming Thursday for the floor. Started on the shower today. OMG.

It’s going to be harder than I thought.



Getting the first course level is the biggest pain.

At least my tile saw still works.

I would be happy with a shelf (I have), a hole would collect it and warm it up. Mount a stick on up high, maybe neck level with a straw.

Well. Tile guys didn’t get started Friday. Now that torqued up my schedule.  Gotta catch a plane Monday and they won’t be done until Tuesday. My dad is gonna come let them in Tuesday.

They did come and fix the Sheetrock they messed up installing the carpet


And dropped off the tile and ditra underlayment

I picked out granite and the granite guys came to measure

Today I made the drawers


And re configured the sink base cabinet since the wife nixed the apron sink due to cost. Now going under mount stainless.

Thanks Dave.  I cheated.  The cabinet supply place I went to, had baltic birch sheets 5x5 with both sides poly urethaned.  And then I noticed that they had pre made drawer pieces out of that with the dado groove for the bottom panel already it it and the birch tape already bound to one edge.  They also had 1/4 inch birch with poly on one side.

All I had to do was measure, cut glue and nail and then slide the bottom panel in.....

We use Burch in most of our drawers. I spray instead of getting the prefinished,   That way my cut edges get sealer

That sounds pretty handy.  Plan your cuts accordingly so you cover your exposed cuts and nobody would be the wiser.

Yeah. Once the drawer fronts go on the only way you see a cut is to pull the drawers out and look at the back. These pre made sides are great for small projects and they come in three heights. 4,7,9 inches.

Now it’s time to install baseboards and the door molding

Then finish the doors and drawers for the cabinets

Then finish the shower tile and wait for the countertop guys to get the countertop installed.

I’m confused by the floor. But it sure looks good! They did a nice job around the stair mount! Needs to be in an old log cabin style house.

What’s the tile called? Old paint splatter mismatched stain??

On a serious note, it looks good. I’ve never seen a tile like that in a store. But have only looked for one job, and he bought travertine.

Ryan the 3rd pic in post 1518 was through the front door. It’s the clearer of the 3 :wink

I’ll run down the name of the tile. It was a Shaw floor tile IIRC but will run it down.

Given the variation in color and pattern I’d shouldn’t show dirt as easy as the tile in the main house. Which is good for teenagers.

Ok. Off for spring break for a week.

Today I cut all the wood for the base molding and door trim and put it in the casita to dehumidify. It will shrink about 1/4 inch overall so I want it to shrink before I stain and cut to final length

Then I installed the drawers. Still have a couple to go. These self closing soft close drawer slides are nice. May have to replace the ones in the house with these.


More shots of the floor.

That’s kind of the entire point. The tile floor in the main house is dark and all the same color. Shows up every speck of dirt.

Little hot tub action and now a fire.

Trying to replicate the cabinets in the main house has me doing things in a weird order. Made the boxes then installed and then made face frames and then stained and varnish the face frame. Not ideal but it works.

So made some progress on the trim. And got quite a few drawer fronts made. I only have two sets of pipe clamps so it’s slow going as I alternate between other work and gluing up drawer fronts.




Now I have to make the arch tops for the doors, trim the pocket door height and a few other little details.

I’m doing anything I can to avoid the shower tile.

Countertop guys are fabricating the counters and hope that’s about 1-2 weeks out. I can almost. Almost see the finish line.

Just about done with drawer fronts. Gonna have to get some more wood milled to make the doors.
