Random project pics…

July 5, 2012

Here are some “befores” and a few “afters”. I will be taking some shots of the house with all the work complete, these should make you appreciate everything a little more…

The old toilet – broken lid, broken flusher, broken valve – fortunately Mike had a new one on standby. (The broken base is all my doing)

Now that is just nasty!

Fully removed and ready for replacement

All those tiles weren’t fully missing, just broken and loose

Yikes! (I ended up peeling off most of the edge tiles as well – they were very loose)

Hard to see, but this is one of the several ant nests built under the loose counter tiles – there were lots of centipedes as well.

You can see the bug trails on the back of the old tile!

Laying out the tile

Getting ready for adhesive

Glued down!

Looking nice!

The roofing broke, fell through, and punched a hole in the veranda ceiling… fortunately the kids left the porch a few minutes before.

That stuff is an asbestos-concrete mix… yummy!

Anyway, there is a new toilet, new counters, new veranda ceiling, several new doors, ceiling repair in the dining room and hall bath, and new paint on the veranda walls!  Pics to come!

    It has been said “A hammer, a nail, a can of paint. Makes many an old place look new, that ain’t” Looks like you are doing just that. Great job.

    I wish you would have taken a picture of the after toilet because I am wondering where the floor trap is? Great job!!
