DIY NetworkAs the home renovation continues it is once again time for me to roll up my sleeves and get to work. While the kitchen remodel is in full swing I am getting ready to dive into my upstairs bathroom overhaul. I have gutted it down to the studs and all that will remain is the old cast iron tub. I rolled that out of the way today with the help of my carpenter and am now ready for roughing in the plumbing.

While getting prepared for the rough in work, I had to research all of my plumbing fixtures, vanity and sink along with recommendations for installing ceramic tile. This is where my story really begins.

Don’t get me wrong, I am the first one to jump onto the internet and gather all the data necessary to make my decisions. But when it comes to bathroom renovation, the data is aplenty, well really just simply overloaded. I have now become even more confused as to when I started my research on best practices for proper subflooring in preparation for ceramic tile. From my old standby sites like,, and there are simply millions of your run of the mill Joe Contractor sites, not to mention the blogs and prodcut manufacturer sites.

Hopefully you can see where I am going with this. I am going to Borders to get me a good book on tiling.
