Three benches done, fourth one in glue-up.

Hoping to be done with all eight by the weekend. Might come up short because I keep getting pulled away to do other shit around here.

I toyed with the idea of trying out crown myself. I just know that I'd have crazy gaps between the crown and the ceiling. I don't know what they do with situations where the ceiling isn't anywhere near flat.

TV over a fireplace is a big no-no.

Smoke/heat from fire damages TV
Viewing angle bad on your neck and eyes
Viwer may be on the limit or outside of ideal viewing angle of the TV

Smoke shouldn't be going inside.

Heat i could see maybe shortening the life.

Viewing angle isn't a problem with current mounts that adjust accordingly.

Iím so glad I did. I do not regret going tankless at all. I love the endless hot water and we can run at least 2 showers and have noticed no drop in pressure. I havenít tested how many things can be run at once.

How the hell do you post pics from a cell phone without photobucket? If I can figure it out Iíll throw some pictures up.

I have a 40 or 50 gallon tank in my utility room. Haven't had an issue with running multiple things at once without losing pressure or hot water. We've had both showers going, dishwasher, and the sink. I still would like a tankless just to free up some room in the utility room though.

Been a couple of months since I finished our bathroom.

Finished photos.











During Construction.




New 3 outlet box for 2 light circuits and a timed switch

Durock up.

Parents had extra floor tile from their kitchen laying around so with 0 extra pieces we managed to make it work in our bathroom.

First time doing a nook. I can really appreciate good tilers nows.

It is pretty thick and viscous stuff. I used some tile setting mortar to cover screw holes and seams on the durock. The two guys on youtube I followed to learn how to tile seemed to recomend it. I have about 2-3 layers on it. It is a bit of overkill with the durock but the previous tile tub surround I pulled out had a lot of water issues.
