Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch"


In order to clean out the mortar I used my angle grinder with a dry tile saw blade. For future reference I won't tile using grout lines narrower than 1/8"

Finally!

Something the previous owner did that I need! A 20a GFCI in the garage!

Not sure why, maybe breaker, but it popped while using pressure washer. Maybe I spoke too soon?

Ok, Ok I haven't been working on bathroom. Since Spring is here everything green had shifted my focus till today.

I have known for a while but finally tackled the move if the blue spruce and planting if the second Asian pear tree.

I rented a tow behind tree spade and transplanted the spruce.

Hopefully it survives in its new location.

We have storms coming in so planted the Asian pear it's place.

The farthest away is actually a four on one apple. All three safely in their "jails" to keep deer from eating them.

with gray mortar I need to cut out.

I've done it! The tiling and grouting are complete! Tomorrow, final vinegar wash of the tile and moving on to the toilet, window sill, sink cabinet, wall cabinet and sconces.

All bathroom electrical completed, sink cabinet mounted, installing wall cabinet with mirror tomorrow.

On a sad note opened toilet's box and items broken. Outside box is undamaged so strange to have broken contents.

I bought several Robern mirrors. It wasn't until weeks after I'd bought them I discovered one of them wasn't the plain edge I'd ordered, but beveled. Thankfully the supplier swapped it out, but it did take some wrangling. Reinforcing the idea that it's very important to unbox everything as close as possible to delivery to ensure it's the right item and unbroken.

Glad to see you're continuing the process! Thanks for the pix.

You're welcome, it's nice seeing it finally come together after two years.

With the new shower purchased a new tankless water heater. Will need to adjust well pump and pressure tank. Needs to be 70/60 instead of 60/50. I'll have to look up how to adjust that since can't remember steps.
