    The drain assembly came with a Swan prefab shower insert. Anyone have experience with these things? The install instructions and included kit consist only of a rubber boot that fits around the drain stub and a grate to cover it. The fit it pretty snug, but without any glue or clamping assembly...

    I started on what I thought would be a pretty surface level renovation and found a couple of issues. 1) Found that a toilet had been leaking for a while. I removed everything which seemed to be mush but uncovered some limited damage to the subfloor and one joist. a) The tile on the floor...
  12. Carpentry
    Hi there, I am wondering/hoping if anybody has advice on how I could go about framing the area over the silver backing (back wall) for a regular old alcove tub? Space is precious to fit the tub I purchased, but it would fit if I can only protrude from the back wall, and the tub opening side, by...
  13. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    Hi I just moved into a not so new apartment. I suppose it got its last renovation like 30 years ago. Anyway, as it's a rented place, and the rent is low I don't really mind.

    Ok, so we just bought a house that was built in 1963. Most of it has been updated, and an addition was done in 1981. When they did that addition, they created an upstairs roman tub/shower that is an awesome space. However, the tile is very outdated and a color that I just cannot put my finger...
