Daybreak wished to take down one wall that separated her three fundamental dwelling areas, the eating room, kitchen and front room. However then realized she eliminated all of the drywall on a load-bearing wall.
A contractor helped her repair that mistake, however then she realized that eradicating the wall additionally uncovered a small patch of previous flooring.

Fill In Ceramic Tile Flooring
Daybreak was fortunate as a result of the earlier house owner left simply sufficient ceramic tiles to fill this eyesore of vinyl flooring.
The mission received’t be tough as a result of vinyl flooring is the proper subfloor. Meaning we don’t need to take away it; we are able to simply set up tiles proper over the previous flooring.
However first, we have to take away among the ceramic tiles surrounding the outlet. They had been minimize round a cupboard that was once on the vinyl flooring.
As soon as the tiles dry in a single day, we apply stain-resistant FusionPro Grout from Customized Constructing Merchandise.
Set up Microwave
An over-the-range microwave has been bought, nevertheless it must be put in, and extra importantly, it must be correctly vented to the surface. In any other case, OTR microwaves simply recirculate the air within the kitchen, which isn’t wholesome.
I drill via the wall to create an entry gap for the venting. Then I take a sledgehammer to the house’s exterior to finish that gap.
With the trail for the vent clear, Bear and I raise the microwave into its new house and trim off the vent on the surface. I additionally add a little bit paint to that vent so it blends proper in.
