The tiles in the pictures look the same as ours which are the original. We have a few cracks and plan to replace the tiles with tiles or perhaps laminated wood.

Nope, decided we like the tile

2 - Questions:

1. Did you modify the entry steps? If so, what did you use? I was thinking about using some indoor/outdoor carpet with metal edge strips.

2. I'd like to see your coach in person. Is it available for "show & tell"?

That is really looking great!

I noticed a series of plastic mats under the driver seat. I was able to buy one of those Office Depot plastic mats for office desks and cut it to fit exactly. Works perfect and looks OEM. It fits the entire foot area, to the center console and under the chair to about 3/4 into the seat pillar. Completely wall-to-wall for the driver area.

GREAT Idea Milt! Those small mats are just temporary.. Good eye!

I am having a custom fit piece of the same carpet edge bound and an going to use that.

Mike,

Awesume job on remodel. It looks very updated and just the way it should.

How did you trim the edges of the tiles around the kitchen window? I'm not asking how you cut the tile, but how did you finish off the edge of the cut tiles? Sems like there is nothing there to hide the rough cut edges....

Did they use any type of backerboard behind the tiles?

Any chance you could post a few pics of the lighting upgrades? I really like the fixture you are using in the bathroom.

Takepride,

Any chance you'd post a picture or 2 of your plastic mat install?

Thanks !

Jeff

The tile is grouted to the windowframe with silicone based sandable grout caulk. it is easily removable with a knife or screwdriver and easily replaced with a caulk gun.

Yes the tile is mounted to a backing boad, I don't know what kind, you can call Joe and ask.

Another idea for the steps. My wife was inspired by Joel, who recovered his steps in oak. So she wanted me to do the same thing. I made mine out of maple to match the cabinets.

This is not the finished project. I have since added non-slip tape on each step, and I have not finished the trim between the top step and the tile floor.
