  • Posted in thread: Shower and its sub-floor? on 07-18-2007 at 12:42 PM
    Thanks for the replies. I am planning on building my own shower with a plywood subfloor over
    the concrete slab, then putting down tar paper, metal lath, mortar and the appropriate
    membranes as recomme...

    Thanks for the reply. Any idea what constitutes this "sleave"? I looked around the forum and
    couldn't find the reference. Am I somehow wrapping the pipes in plastic? I'm not exactly sure
    how I would g...

    I am planning to build a shower in my downstairs bathroom (see first attached picture). The
    floor of the bathroom is built on a slab foundation. When I pulled out the old shower, it

  • Posted in thread: Patch repair a spring house wall? on 06-18-2007 at 09:30 PM
    Finished the job late Saturday afternoon. I built the forms more or less as you recommended,
    although I decided not to use the PVC pipe, since I ended up pulling out the outer form to make
    it easier t...

    Thanks for your reply, Square Eye. I wish I'd mentioned the fact that it does have a roof over
    the existing wall. This seems like it will substantially complicate things. Should I build the
    forms so t...

    My family owns property with a small house with water fed by a natural spring. The spring was
    protected about 30 years ago with a spring house made with concrete walls, probably about 2
    inches thick. ...

    I was able to complete the project before going on vacation last week! It took me a full two
    days of work to do it all. I built a temporary wall, cut through a portion of the siding,
    pulled out the ol...

    Yikes! I just started to pull away the siding from the outside corner there and I discovered
    that the corner post is nothing more than a 2x4. I was expecting it to be at least a 4x4. As
    expected that ...
