Yeah...I'm not sure at what point this turned into a validation thread for people that have been or are in the construction industry. I thought we were talking about laying tile or fixing toilets, not building a 4 bed 3 bath house with a walkout basement on an empty lot.  :confused:

I drive a non-riced out '98 Prelude.

My knees can't take tiling a floor. I'll do the Hardie board, though.

The best part of handymaning is showing off your handy work.

Joe:  "Wow you really did a great job on that derp."

tiling seems like it'd be easy.  i've never done it, but i mean, you have a large flat surface and a bunch of small flat tetragons.  and you just have to arrange the tetragons on the large flat surface so as to completely cover it.  and you're allowed to reshape the tetragons!

tiling gets boring and repetitive, for me at least.  I've had to work more at caring so a shitty job doesn't get turned in.

I'm one of the weird ones among engineering types (more normal overall?). Hate doing handyman stuff, despite being somewhat capable. Would much rather watch or play sports, party, or participate in some other, more enjoyable, hobby. Maybe this will change when I own my own house but I doubt it.

Tiling is easy as long as you have the Mich-recomendo saw and the guy who built your floor didn't make it out of level and shitty.  Rooms that are out of square, or floors that have rises/drops in them are the worst.

no, engineers are lazy and un-talented.   It's what makes them engineers.

Alright friends, ben ji is off all next week and is removing some old wallpaper and painting his kitchen...not a big job so I'm thinking about sanding and restaining the wood cabinets in the kitchen as well.

Doing some research online it looks like I will need remove the cabinet doors, sand them to remove the sealer then re-stain/seal everything.

Planning on doing a test run on 1 drawer sometime this week to see how it will look. 

I have never done this before so please add any advice you may have!
