Jim, did you get a hotwater line hooked up for the hosebib? Makes a lot easier (smoother) when it is really cold as you can float the water before it freezes.

I'm tearing up the carpet in my Condo and putting tile down.

Any advice on what kind of tile to use? I'm thinking ceramic only because Porcelain is too expensive.

Getting to the end of a built in pantry in my kitchen. Just got the 32" sliders after a month on order... It will add a ton of storage. Hope to build the doors soon.
