It’s pretty easy. I had no experience and was able to do my master bath, guest bath, foyer, and both showers. My wife and I did then did our backsplash in our new house and it cost $250 in materials. I ended up getting a ryobi tile saw with a better blade and my friend has it now from his first project and he did a great job. If you can build a kick ass sub box, you can tile for sure.

My boxes are far from pretty. :ROFLMAO:

I've been wanting to get a new miter and table saw. Guess I'll pick up a tile saw as well.

Hahahahaha some of my boxes come out not as pretty but I need a new table saw badly. In my experience with just diy stuff, get a cheap(ish) tile saw and get a better quality blade and you’re good. What’s good about tile is when you make cuts, those cuts are usually hidden under trim, fixtures, etc.

Apparently that wood grain laminate is now to the point of completely waterproof if you're looking for something fast and cheap, my dad's laid about a hundred sqft of that and it all looks good enough to raise the property value. Depends a bit on the temperature range which one will last longer between that and ceramic. Ceramic handles tons of foot traffic better, vinyl handles temperature fluctuation better.

I asked about just putting down vinyl flooring but the realtor said since it was "sold" with tile I have to re tile it. The whole house is tiled but I do like vinyl flooring myself.

Think i'm going to get a cheap Ryobi Tile saw for $130.

Trying to figure out now if I want to use Schluter Ditra to uncouple the tiles from the subfloor or just use HardiBacker concrete board. It's a bedroom so I don't care about waterproofing. To be 100% honest I'm just trying to do it cheap since the house is "sold" and I won't be living there for 20 years.

That *****. We have vinyl flooring and love it. I got the stuff with a foam underpayment that locks in place. We live in the country with 4 dogs and 2 kids so our floors see a lot and the only actual complaint is over time a couple areas have loosened so I have to use a flexible caulk on the seam.

It sounds bad but I’d just do Hardi and call it a day. Schluter is great but expensive and i’m assuming it’s a flip house. Hardi is a good product and I’ve had good results with it.

Honestly seems a little weird they'd want ceramic, but I live in the midwest. Our floors get so cold you don't want to get out of bed in the morning barefoot. There's something special about ceramic, but I've always considered it the best for kitchens, bathrooms, and that's about it.

My friend's mom did a complete DIY ceramic floor with one of those tile saws she rented in a week and a half with no experience. I think it looked indistinguishable from professional when she was done although it was a simple room shape. Room was about 30ftx10ft rectangle. I reckon you might want to go that route since the rented tools are usually built way way better than the bottom end ones since they've gotta get their money out of them. Provided you've got a good high amperage circuit to use you'll be better off.

Got the book of an inspection report today....

Buyer backed out... I think because the realtor failed to say that the property next to it was not included and he wanted to build a work shop. I sold the property next door to my uncle because he used it to get his boats into his canal.

This little spot where the inspector shoved screw drivers through the wood is causing me to have to redo the whole subfloor and re tile the master bedroom... 😑

The appliances get inspected?? Lol they all passed but Jesus. They are free

There were so many tiny issues. No large things though. Was not expecting that. There was a small hole in the side skirting from weed eating that was flagged...

I would understand if this was a brand new home but it’s far from brand new. But atleast I now have a detailed book to show all the things I need to do.

Damn, I've dealt with a lot of inspectors but that one takes the cake lol. It seems like they're trying to differentiate themselves from other inspectors by being anal retentive.

My mom just bought a huge house and had a conversation with the previous owner. Apparently he was livid because the inspector she had used marked the kitchen for not having a gas hook-up on the report because it was behind the oven out of sight. I would love to see how he'd react to your inspector. This guy was so mad about that a whole month later it's all he could talk about.

What pisses me off? Contractor NO SHOWS! I made an appointment with my local fence builder to come look at my fence today (widening a couple gates). We scheduled the appointment, I changed plans to be here and I even called them back yesterday to confirm the appointment. Here we are today and guess what...(a contractor NO SHOW).

Now, I understand things happen. Folks can be held up at another job, employee issues etc. However, at least have the decency to call the customer and let them know! My time is just as important as theirs!

I'm not pissed off because of this one contractor...it's multiple contractors in multiple trades in my area. Painters, builders, carpenters, roofers etc. One guy down the street lost a bunch a money when a roofer left the state with his money and a 1/2 finished roof! Another had a bunch of screws and nails in his yard after a garage door replacement...(2 flat tires as a result).

If you can't do what you say when you can do it, then you need to find another frickin' job. Do everyone else a favor and fire yourself, your shoddy employees or shut your business doors!

Take your "not my job", "not my problem" attitude and apply it to your own life you smooth brained, idle handed sloths!

Xfinity was doing so well for me...

I hopped over to the bank to make a deposit and got my balance. Almost $170 missing. Apparently a few weeks back when I called Xfinity and had them remove Showtime as I do not watch it and it was part of a package, they took it upon themselves to make my account auto pay, without my consent. Never told me either. Today the customer service lady said they don't have any way to make our accounts auto pay. Well they must because I make it a point to pay all my bill myself, no auto pay ever with ANY bill. By the end of the call she said she took it off auto pay for me... a lie as I had to do it 10 min later on their website. WTF?? Also, the final price the other moron quoted me for my final monthly cost quoted me a wrong price. Idiots.

Training for my job. Apparently to deliver pizza via my car, I have to know the entire history of the company. I have to know how to do literally every job in the store. I have to be a secretary, a phone operator, a cashier, a customer service rep, a prep cook, a cook, a cut line person, a stock person, a dish washer, a trash person, a box folder, a restocking person, a sanitation person, a billboard.... oh and the thing I was hired for. A DRIVER!!!
