STAGE 22

CONTINUATION OF LOWER FLOOR TILING

 

Start tiling at the front door .....the entire downstairs will be in the same tile (except shower of course) and some places might require a small cut tile.....(particularly  around floor wastes and entry concertina floor door bolts and floor plates)  but unfortunately that cant be helped as there are so many nooks and crannies......both the double and single garage will also be tiled (same tile).....you may have to shape (cut) tiles around door jamb's etc...... using the small grinder

DOWNSTAIRS LOUNGE AND OUTDOOR PATIO.....top of sliding door track flush with top of tile

 

LOWER FLOOR HEAT MAT (guest bedroom, bedroom one, lower lounge)

 REEMEMBER.....although your electrician should already be aware.....you will need an adequate size breaker on your switchboard for your floor heatter....because an electrical floor heater will draw a lot of current 

(guest bedroom shown below) .......I layed a heat mat under the tile, with a control on the right wall as you walked in the guest bedroom....i only layed the heat mat in that room, where you would walk....no point in heating your tiles under the bed...and the same in the other rooms 

These days some people prefer to use hot water underfloor piping....but i found that was going to be hard to work with, clumsy, and the potential for water leakage.....you may think differently.....up to you! .....but downstairs under-floor heating, .....definitely a must 

Electric floor heated both bedrooms, lounge floor, and both bathrooms downstairs 

I didn't find it expensive to run, as we lived upstairs, and it was only on when guests arrived, and they could choose which bedrooom, lounge or bathroom they had on....so it seemed quite minimal costing to run 

You will have to chase the cables up the wall to the power source, and put your control at a comfortable standing height on the wall....in the bedrooms and lounge....i had my bathrooms hooked up to my bedroom controls, for easier access...( see Stage 13B )
