We bought this book a few years ago and have the DVDs and think that this is the best owner-builder resource out there.

Started the day off by heading to Big Blue to pick up the tile. They had called us twice in the past two days to tell us it was in. When we get there, they looked it up on the computer and said no it wasn't. Wouldn't look at the order number, kept looking at the inventory. It showed nothing there, but as it was already paid for, it wouldn't show up as inventory. But the guy wouldn't listen or go in the back to look. Another salesperson went back then but 10 minutes later still hadn't returned. Another guy came over and said it was arriving tonight and could be picked up in the morning. Huh?


That didn't make sense at all. It's like this so often when you order from the big guys. They are clueless. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

So I couldn't start tiling the showers, but did go to work running membrane on the last shower. Went ahead and cleaned the master bath floor, scraping drywall mud off, vacuuming and finally cut the plastic tile isolation material and set it in thin set. So this week I can start running floor tile on it with the tile we had bought elsewhere and picked up yesterday. Cassidy went and installed a few dimmers, set a bunch of electrical plates until she ran out, then she started scoping out the ceiling speaker installation. 

Oh - I went to install the occupancy sensor switches in the two master closets. That way you can't leave them on continuously. But Cassidy's switch box was covered up! Another one the drywall guys missed. Pulled out photographs on the phone and located where it should be. Found it, installed the switch and ---- nothing. What the heck? I check continuity and find - there wasn't a feed wire into the light's j box. Crap! There was one leaving the switch box - called Todd, asked if he had a better picture of the area. He did and sent it over. There was a forgotten wire! Through two studs and hanging in the stud bay. Argh! I hate screwing up! Had to open up two places in the sheetrock pull it through and into the box. Then patch the holes. Two steps forward one back today.

Shower membrane installed in the master shower. The tile will go to the ceiling, but the membrane only needs to run up around 6' or so as that is the wet zone.
Isolation material cut to fit before the being set in thin set.
