Watch the full episode: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/watch/ask-toh-citrus-greening-tile Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva helps a homeowner replace the peeling, vinyl floor in his bathroom with a ceramic tile floor Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Time: 2 days Cost: $200 Skill Level: Moderate Tools List for Replacing a Vinyl Floor with Ceramic Tile: Open ended adjustable wrench Utility knife Pry bar Hammer Putty knife Jigsaw Carbide tip knife Notched trowel Drill driver Wet saw Rubber float Sponge Bucket Shopping List: Tiles Cement board Thinset mortar 1 ¼” cement screws Mesh tape Grout Steps: 1. Before getting started, all the appliances need to be removed. Disconnect and remove any sinks, vanities (https://www.thisoldhouse.com/how-to/how-to-upgrade-bathroom-vanity ), and toilets (https://www.thisoldhouse.com/how-to/how-to-change-toilet ) in the bathroom. Loosen the flange and hold it up with spacers if possible. 2. Next, remove any baseboard trim with the pry bar. 3. Once the floor is clear, peel off the vinyl tiles with a putty knife. With the floor up, now is good opportunity to ensure the subfloor is properly secured. 4. Add cement board to the subfloor to act as a base for the tiles. Cut it to size by scoring it with the carbide tip knife and snapping it, similar to drywall. 5. Apply the thinset to the floor using the notched trowel. 6. Secure the cement board to the floor using the cement screws about 8” apart. Make sure the cement board goes underneath the toilet flange. Cover the seams between the cement board with mesh tape. 7. Dry fit the tiles to see how they will fit in the room. Measure and mark tiles that need to be cut. 8. Cut the tiles using a wet saw. 9. Apply thinset to the cement board using the notched trowel and lay the tiles on the floor. Nippers can be used to cut around the flange. Allow the thinset to cure for 24 hours. 10. Grout the tile after 24 hours. 11. Reinstall the vanity and toilet. Resources: Tom chose a mosaic 12x12 inch tile with mesh backing from Daltile (https://www.daltile.com ). For the subfloor, he used ¼ inch Wonderboard lite cement board underlayment. For mortar, Tom used versabond thinset. To trim the bottom of the casings, Tom used an osculating saw available at Home Depot (https://www.homedepot.com/b/Tools-Power-Tools-Power-Multi-Tools-Oscillating-Tools/N-5yc1vZc2b2 ). All of these materials can be purchased at a home center. Ask This Old House TV Homeowners have a virtual truckload of questions for us on smaller projects, and we're ready to answer.

How to Create a Dutch Door

Watch the full episode: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/watch/ask-toh-dutch-door-landscape-checkers Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva converts a regular door into a Dutch door. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Time: 3 hours Cost: $100 Skill Level: Moderate Tools List for Creating a Dutch Door: Pencil Safety glasses Chisel Utility knife Drill Track saw Palm sander Shopping List: Hinges (with screws) Barrel latch Scrap cardboard Scrap wood for Filler Wood glue Wood screws 80-100 grit sandpaper Steps: 1. With the door still hung in the jamb, mark where the cut for Dutch door will be. Use that as a guide to mark for 2 additional hinges above and below the cut mark. 2. Mortise the door where the new hinges will go with a chisel. Scoring around the mark with a utility knife can help prevent the door from chipping or cracking. 3. Once the hinges can fit flush against the door, attach the hinges to the door using a drill and screws. 4. With the new hinges attached to the door, trace where the hinges will attach to the jamb. Mortise the jamb and attach the other side of the hinges the same as earlier. 5. Replace the old hinges with new ones so that all four hinges match. If the old hinges are thicker than the new ones, add a filler piece of scrap cardboard behind both hinges before installing. 6. Remove the door from the jamb. 7. Cut two pieces of scrap wood the width of the door and taper them on opposite sides. 8. Cut the door in half with the track saw to fit the tapered filler pieces. 9. Attach one filler piece to the bottom of the top half of the door using wood glue and screws. 10. Rehang the top half of the door, then the bottom. With the door in place, attach the second filler piece to the top of the bottom half of the door and adjust as necessary with a palm sander. 11. Install a barrel latch to the top and bottom halves of the door to lock the top half of the door. Resources: Everything Tom used for this project, including the chisel, utility knife, hole saw, hinges, and latches can be found at home centers. Tom used wood glue and polyurethane glue, manufactured by Gorilla Glue (https://www.gorillatough.com/) The track saw Tom used is manufactured by Festool (https://www.festoolusa.com/) Expert assistance for this project was provided by Woodcraft (https://www.woodcraft.com/).
