Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch"


Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch"-20130804_143254-1-.jpgCompleted the lower portion of the hinge side of the tiling. I need to cut the top 90 degree cut like the opposite side tonight. I have to be careful knocking the leveling clips out!

I don't know why this program rotates some pictures but not others...?

The project that started 10/17/2011 is DONE! The retaining wall on the south side of the walk out up to pitch is complete. The DeWalt tile saw didn't cut all the way through so had to use chisel to knock wedge off.

The scoring technique called for marking caps on bottom, I had to transfer the lines to the top since the cut had to be on the top and chisel edge on the bottom.

The cut cap in place.

Now the completed wall!

Completed everything I can do in bathroom until I install the heated floor. I have to have my electrician hook it up.

I also put in header for the pocket doors. Laser line doesn't show up good. Pocket door frames are tomorrow's project!

Performed the second flood test, this one using all the showerheads with a 1/2" nipple connected. With wide open flow we don't have enough water pressure to run all of them. Hopefully, once the sprays and showerhead are on the water restriction will allow all of them to come on at once.

The shower pan is holding water again with no leaks! So back to closing up the walls.

what're you supplying with, 1/2" or 3/4" from the water heater & cold lines? I found in order to run more than one 1/2" rain or hand shower together I had to use a 3/4" diverter (fed by 3/4" lines) (it had 1/2" outputs).

We are on a well, I am still trying to learn the dynamics of this situation. You can get a higher gpm pump if well drawdown is high enough but I am still not sure if that affects anything "after" the pressure tank...? I think I opened every faucet in the house and got 10-11 gpm so moving to a 20 gpm pump would require three pressure tanks. A lot to invest without knowing it will improve things. When well was installed in 2002 well drawdown was 75 gpm.

Now I know why they call it WONDERBOARD!

I wonder why it smells funny
I wonder how you are supposed to score it, scoring tool slides across making no mark, until after a dozen passes
I wonder why it still breaks away from the line I scored
I wonder why it is so heavy compared to Durock
I wonder which side is which
I just keep wondering...

Ok, I wonder a little less about scoring it, scores only on one side! But now I wonder why it still doesn't snap after a DEEP score?

I'll never use it again, floor ready for heat mesh

Then on to finally closing walls!

Laticrete floor heat laid out, finished embedding it in mortar. Looks funny since I had one bag of grey left and started using white. So no picture of that LOL
