took me 10 hours to lay these 4 tiles. Almost perfect. Slight high spot on the left near the door in the trim. Dinnete backs up against it so no chance of catching it with a foot. Just the tub surround left tomorrow.

I am beat. No more tiling work. Clean tiles, clean grout lines, grout it and finally start rebuilding the rest of the interior.

While your fridge is out blow out chimney and run a shotgun brush up and down in it. Don't forget to put spiral back.

I've done my share of tile work and the pictures you've posted indicate that you are a craftsman. Looks good.

Appreciate the kind words. Couple small imperfections here and there. I know where they are so my eye is drawn to them.
Used Mapei flexcolor CQ grout. Warm grey color. Really blends in well with the tile. Needed 1/2 quart to finish it! grabbed more today will finish grouting tomorrow.

Then comes the tedious work of painting the cabinets.
-liquid sandpaper with steel wool
-thinned out "sweet white" behr color
-water based grain filler
-about 1000 coats of water based hi gloss urethane
-M205 on a green pad to get the final gloss touch

Flooring done, mocking up the new dinette seats. Wall color will change to a light beige to tie everything together.


Also video walk through of the completed floor.

not much progress this weekend but plugging away. almost done rebuilding the kitchen counter, can mount that in finally which will allow me to start replumbing, mount the furnace etc. Gettign to below 40s and I need heat in there to continue working/painting.
Bathroom walls almost done. 600 grit sand the grain filler tonight then lay on the gloss water based polyurethane.
New 3/4" thick oak plywood.
Need to get the fridge in ASAP so I can take this thing for a drive. been sitting over 3 months...see if any of the tile or grout cracks...
Also need to empty out the black tank now that the toilet is installed. Pump as much water into it, get it fileld up and fully liquified (already dumped a gallon of septic enzymes into it), and get that nasty old crap out of there before it freezes.

It's looking good. Add some Blue Dawn Premium dish soap to the black tank and let it sit. Then, rinse and repeat. I get the super size bottle from Costco. While there, also get the 13 pound bag of baking soda to treat the battery compartment.

Took it for a 50 mile drive this weekend. Was finally able to dump the POs black tank waste, got it all freed up and emulsified, drained for about 45 seconds straight!
No cracked tiles or grout I could see which was my main concern.
Filled the tank (I believe it is a 100gal fuel tank not 150), put biocide and PS white bottle in ready for winter storage while I work on it.
Going to cut up some plywood to put under the tires to put between the concrete.


Drove real nice on the freeway, but she def feels the bumps over some of these Detroit streets. Im sure a nice prevost would float over them


Taking some time to clean up the property and garage after some lengthy work on it, then back to installing plumbing etc for the kitchen cabinet, get the furnace in there and working so I can continue painting the cabinets etc in these cold temps.
