    Room is 88x80, doorway is 29" wide. Tub is 60x30. Could make it out on its side.

    The house I bought has a bathroom I intended on remodeling by repainting the existing clawfoot
    tub, retiling the bathroom, and putting in new toilet, vanity, and sink.The previous decor in
    the room wa...

    The cheapest and easiest way to go is to just put thinset on top of the vinyl and install
    backer over top. Get the real stiff backer board (like Hardie Backer) and it will do okay over
    the "sag" - jus...

    it up?

    I think I hear you saying there are TWO layers on your floor. If you are already into the
    subfloor level, the thinner will release that level as you push the scraper through it. The
    minor imperfection...

    Hmm not cool. I can't get to the bottom of vinyl without major gouging into the vinyl strips I
    cut with a box cutter. There is no daylight ever, between the bottom of the vinyl and the wood.
    Nor do I ...

    First time DIYer...Finished ripping out the fixtures and disconnecting the cast iron tub in my
    third floor bathroom yesterday. I am planning on installing a subway/hex tile floor, where

    I just bought a 85 year old house in PA that is in need of some serious updating. We bought the

    lot of woo...
