Living room kitchen gut job

Project by ShepherdsRidge posted 12-04-2011 06:53 PM 2592 views 0 times favorited 8 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I purchased this house when I was young and stupid, which in the end paid off for me. It took me nearly 15 years just to get to this major project and many migraines to follow. This project entailed gutting an old bedroom, bathroom, the living area and a tiny kitchen. The kitchen was moved and new plumbing run to it. The floor was fixed to bring it back to level and tiled with 16×16 porcelain. All hickory cabinets were installed with a porcelain countertop. The old kitchen became the laundry/bathroom. The living room had all of the old paneling removed, a large opening cut into it to the staircase and a new cedar ceiling installed. All rooms have new insulation, windows and drywall.

Nice work. I like the openness, and of course the hickory cabinets are awesome! Good job.

I like the cabinet work. Did you do make these yourself? I love the knotty pine, T&G finish on the ceiling. Impressive work.

- Mixing glue: Pour 5.0 – 5.5 liters of clean water into the bucket, pour 25 kg of dry glue. Mix mechanically for 5 – 7 minutes to achieve a homogeneous and flexible mixture. Leave the mixture for 3-5 minutes and mix again for 1 – 2 minutes before use. Under normal conditions of temperature and humidity, the best time to use brick mortar after mixing is 60 minutes. Provided that the weather is windy, sunny, wearing suits with high water absorption or high temperature, the usage time will be reduced.
To achieve optimum adhesion, first use the straight edge of the sawtooth to spread a thin layer of 3 to 4 mm thick, to the work surface, then use the sawtooth edge Tilt 45 degrees on the surface of the glue to create grooves and create a uniform thickness and fit the tile needed for paving.
- Tile: There is no need to wet the tile before gluing, if the back of the tile is too dirty, it should be washed with clean water before it is glued. Immediately after spreading the adhesive in the manner described above, quickly place the bricks in the position to be glued and press lightly with a rubber hammer to ensure that the mortar is covered evenly on the back of the bricks. It is possible to adjust the glued tile within 60 minutes after gluing
