Oh yeah, now I'm painting the bathroom and changing the towel racks and so on and so on. One thing leads to another. I need a tasty wave and a cool buzz. Come on 80's.

80s? Give me a week of 50s and we'll be on the water!

In over news I re-tiled my basement bathroom this weekend. Let me tile you, I'm sore! Tile sawing is messy, but it came out sweet. I'll post pics later. I guess my gf knows we need to get these projects in before spring, otherwise they'll have to wait 'till winter!

I am in the process of building an outdoor grill. 13ft long with a built in bbq and refer on the patio. finishing up the backerboard this week, then tiling the top and installing cultured stone(new one for me) this weekend. only 2 more projects to go, then it's time to start on the boat projects for the summer :)

shower looks nice. I sometimes curse my wife for taking me to the home depot tiling class 10 years ago. our current house built last summer has over 1000sqft of tile, all laid by yours truely. backbreaking work, but the result is worth it...

^^Damn Cat!^^ Same sink & toilet, new cabinet for the sink.

I still need to install the shoe moulding, I'm going to try to get to that tonight.


I didn't get into any patterns or anything, and I just left the existing plastic shower thing, its only a few years old and we never use this bathroom, just wanted to make it a little more 'grown up' and a little less 'crazy circus' room, lol.

That's some pretty good looking tile work. I've been known to lay some of that stuff from time to time too.

I had to complete at least one (honey do) this winter. Now it's back to MOOMBA MODS. Tile is a pain in the whole body.

Last year I got a new XLV and I promised my wife she could have a new kitchen this winter. I get to start the project in 2 weeks, after already replacing a few exterior doors and windows so far this winter. Its not going to be fun but I figure get it done now so once spring hits, I can spend all my time out on the water.

We're going full speed + 100 to get the lake house done by mid June. I'm tired of sharing my weekends with work and water time. If I get it done by mid June I'm set for the summer. No landscaping at the lake this summer! I'll save that for next year along with the Garage.

I'm doing the main bath at the lake all tile. Walls, floors and Roman Shower. 1Lok I like what you did there. Like the colors and the Mosaic. Looks very nice.
