Timber-frame Garden Shed
Index>Furnishings>Outdoor Wood Furnishings>
Timber-framing is a traditional building method that
uses a simple framework of heavy timber posts and
beams connected with hand-carved joints. From the
outside, a timber-frame building looks like a
standard, stick-framed structure, but the stout,
rough-sawn members give the interior the feel of
an 18th-century barn or workshop.
This 8 × 10-ft. shed has the same rough-sawn
timbers and basic design used in traditional timberframing, but with joints that are easy to make. In
addition to an attractive interior, the shed has a
homemade skylight and a large side window that
make it a bright, inviting space. If staying cool is a
concern, install operable windows, or adapt the
shed frame to add more windows. Adding roof
vents can improve ventilation, as well.
The roof frame in this project is made with standard
2 × 4s, but if you're willing to pay a little more to
improve the appearance, you can use rough-cut 2
× 4s or 4 × 4s for the roof framing.

Fill bathtubs and whirlpools at least half full of water before
caulking around the edges to approximate the full tub weight.
Tubs shift position when filled with water; caulking when the
tub is full helps ensure that the caulking seal does not stretch
and pull apart when the tub is filled.
Hanging towel rods, mirrors, and other accessories, caulking
seams, and sealing tile and grout are a few of the small projects
that bring your bathroom remodeling project to completion.
Whenever possible, anchor accessories to wall studs or blocking
for maximum holding power. If no studs or blocking are located
in the area where accessories will be installed, use special
fasteners, like toggle bolts or molly bolts, to anchor the
accessories to wallboard or plaster walls.
Use tub & tile caulk for most bathroom sealing projects. Most
tub & tile caulk is a blend of silicone and latex that offers the
best features of both. Pure silicone expands and contracts with
fixtures, like bathtubs, that can shift position. It is a longlasting, effective sealant, but it is relatively expensive and
cannot be painted.
Latex caulk is inexpensive and it holds paint well. It also is easy
to apply in smooth, neat beads, but it breaks down more
quickly than silicone, and it can trap odors and mildew. Some
tub & tile caulk contains acrylic for a hard surface. Caulk of all
types should be inspected yearly, and reapplied as needed.

Options for Attaching Bathroom Accessories
Attach accessories and hardware between wall studs by
using screw sleeves or special fasteners that are attached
directly to the wall surface. Plastic anchor sleeves (A), often
used in ceramic tile, are inserted into pilot holes, where they
expand when screws are driven. Grip-it® fasteners (B), molly
bolts (C), and toggle bolts (D) provide more holding power
than sleeves.

Plumbing a Kitchen

Index>Remodeling Kitchens>Kitchen Remodeling

Service Store Locator
Plumbing a remodeled kitchen is a relatively easy job if your
kitchen includes only a wall sink. If your project includes an
island sink, however, the work becomes more complicated.
An island sink poses problems because there is no adjacent wall
in which to run a vent pipe. For an island sink, you will need to
use a special plumbing configuration known as a loop vent.
Each loop vent situation is different, and your configuration will
depend on the location of existing waste-vent stacks, the
direction of the floor joists, and the size and location of your
sink base cabinet. Consult your local plumbing inspector for
help in laying out the loop vent.
Our demonstration kitchen includes a double wall sink and an
island sink. The 1 1/2" drain for the wall sink connects to an
existing 2" galvanized waste-vent stack; since the trap is within
3 1/2 ft. of the stack, no vent pipe is required. The drain for the
island sink uses a loop vent configuration connected to an
auxiliary waste-vent stack in the basement.
The following information shows plumbing methods specific to a
kitchen project. If you are not familiar with basic plumbing
methods, find a good reference book to help you with this work.

Remodeling Project>
Running cables for new electrical fixtures is easiest if wall
surfaces have been removed. Make the final wiring hookups at
the fixtures after wall surfaces are finished.
Follow Local Code requirements for wiring bathrooms. Reduce
shock hazard by protecting the entire bathroom circuit with
GFCI receptacles. Install only electrical fixtures that are U.L.approved.
If it is not practical to remove wall surfaces, "retrofit"
techniques can be used to install vent fans and other fixtures.
Most wiring connections for bathroom fixtures are easy to
make, but wiring configurations in electrical boxes vary widely,
depending on the type of fixture and the circuit layout.
If you are not confident in your skills, have an electrician install
and connect fixtures. Unless you are very experienced, leave
the job of making circuit connections at the main service panel
to an electrician.
Everything You Need:
Safety Issues:
Tools:
neon circuit tester
wire stripper
cable ripper
screwdriver
level
Always shut off electrical
power at the main service
panel, and test for power
before working with wires.
Materials:
NM cable
wire staples
wire nuts
screws

Installing most bathroom lights is similar to installing
lights in any other room in the house. Adding new lighting
fixtures makes a bathroom safer and more inviting, and can
even make bathrooms seem larger. In showers, install only
vaporproof lights that have been U.L. rated for wet areas.
Shower lights have a waterproof gasket that fits between the
fixture and the light cover.
Install a GFCI receptacle
and switch by making the
following connections: black
wire from power source (A) to
brass screw marked LINE on
GFCI; white wire from power
source (B) to silver screw
marked LINE; white wire to
light (C) to silver GFCI screw
marked LOAD; black wire to
light (D) to a screw terminal
on switch. Cut a short length
of black wire (E), and attach
one end to brass GFCI screw
marked LOAD, and other end
to a screw terminal on switch.
Connect a bare grounding
pigtail wire to GFCI grounding
screw (F), and join all bare
grounding wires (G) with a
wire nut. Tuck wires into box,
then attach switch,
receptacle, and coverplate.

Repairing Ceramic Tile Floors

Apply grout sealer to grout joints every 1-2 years to protect
against water, wear, and stains. Use a sponge brush to spread
the sealer and keep it off the tiles. Allow new grout to cure fully
before sealing it.
Like the tile on your bathroom or kitchen walls, floor tile must
be watertight. All the grout lines must be solid and full, and
every tile must be free of cracks or chips. Neglecting problems
can result in damage to the underlayment and subfloor, and
possibly to the entire tile job.
Perhaps the greatest challenge with tile repair is matching the
grout color. If you're regrouting an entire floor, just select a
color that compliments the tile; if you're replacing a tile, you
have to blend the new grout with the old. A good tile dealer can
help you get the best color match.
Floor tile is typically bonded to the floor with a cement-based
adhesive, known as thin-set mortar. If you find another
adhesive, such as mastic, under the original tile, use the same
type to install replacement tiles.
