The floor in our bathroom was desperately calling out to be saved from the pink color of ceramic tile that covered it. Mr. Wonderful removed the base boards first, and then the tile. He was thinking that tile removal would be difficult, but the person who installed them before we purchased the house did not glue them down correctly. They laid the tile in place, then put on the mortar. Since we have lived here, the tile has been cracking, and the mortar has chipped due to the moisture that bathrooms naturally have from time to time. It was relatively easy to pop out those tiles! We picked out some Congoleum to replace the tile. The picture above shows the base that the new flooring will be installed on. The nice little '+' signs would help in placement of any size of vinyl tiles or ceramic tiles as well, but we are putting in rolled vinyl and just need the new smooth surface sub-flooring.
The other project Mr. Wonderful was working on before the storm arrived is a hearth for the corn stove we got from some friends of ours. The stove is small, great for limited spaces. We only wish to heat a small area on the main floor, as the basement rooms are heated with the wood stove, and we will be shutting off the upper floor this winter to save on the cost of heating, since there is only the 2 of us...makes the most sense. The picture below is the corn stove. Mr. Wonderful will need to install the pipes that vent it to the outside and the cold air return. The hearth will be unique, as he is going to design it himself. The base, as you can see, is built. He plans to build a section that will attach to the wall behind the stove. This will be great for ease of cleaning.Thanks for stopping by today, and please remember to leave a comment before you leave each GET R DONE FRIDAY participant! Link on below:
