So this was initially just a tile job. In the beginning it was carpet over VCT. So we pulled that up.

They had baseboard heat so I pulled all the old covers and bought new high output covers. Well when we pulled the covers we discovered that gutter downspout right outside was left disconnected allowing water through the concrete at the base of the wall causing pretty substantial rot. You can see it here

In the last picture here you can see one of the rotten 2×4s. Because there was no structure we had to reframe the walls so that there was something to attach all the baseboard covers to.

Oh yea! I forgot to mention also that as we were pulling the baseboard covers, one of the corners that the previous plumber soldered was not exactly….well….done properly. The pipe went about an 1/8” into the elbow and, surprise surprise, fell apart spraying water everywhere. So after shutting down and draining the boiler, we repaired that.


It came out well. The job also wound up including tearing down paneling from the 70s repairing quite a bit of Sheetrock repair and all new base trim. Oh yea! I forgot! If you scroll up that picture of the outlet. We replaced all the outlets because nothing was grounded so they got all new tamper resistant outlets that are PROPERLY installed. Hope you like it

Wow, big difference Greg,

baseboard heat is ugly and hard to work around but it sure puts off nice heat, especially in a split level.

But, what a mess. I’ll bet you were nervous the whole time about that damn pipe leaking…..sure enough.
sounds like you caught it in time and there was no damage, I hope.

That tile looks great. where’s the money shot of it finished and decorated? Ha!

I have so many jobs where it was never convenient for them to let me in and stage their crap for a final picture. Now I’m bummed I didn’t try harder. The older you get the more these pictures mean to you.

videos of my dogs too…...I wish I had more videos of my “kids”.

thanks for posting this, Refurbers ain’t dead yet.

what we need is a jobsite dog thread.

The fun thing about old houses. In my daughter’s house, they did repair after repair but never cleaned out the bad parts. I go to her house and do a project a year and clean out the old crap and replace it with new – correctly.

The kitchen that I did for her several years ago was one of those overnight on a zero budget things. Next year or so I will be redoing the whole thing – walls, insulation (it has none), electric, cabinetry – all of it.

Makes things interesting.

You did a really nice job!
