Ok, keep in mind that this bathroom was never intended to be here. It is taking up valuable shop real-estate. This bathroom was the wife’s stipulation for me building the addition. We typically have a lot of family and friends over and do a lot of swimming and barbequing. The bathroom has an exit to the backyard so that everyone can use it instead of tracking water and dirt through the house. With that said, I decided to spruce it up a bit. I used 16”x16” Travertine with 1/8” grout lines and laid it on a 45. I’m no professional, so it took the better part of 8 hours due to all the cuts. I ended up using a Dremel with a grinding bit to do go around the door frames which took about 20 minutes each, but I’m really happy with the end result.

Took this photo before the final trimming, but forgot to take another of the completely finished piece.

This is after sealing the entire floor. The stuff was pricey, but it really brought out the color in the stone.

Looks great. I love that tile. If I ever get around to it I am going to do a patio sunroom on the back of the house and use simular tile. JB

on a serious note. i was just at my brothers house in gilbert and he has a pool. the biggest problem is there is no bathroom close to it. but he has a dinning room that is too big.so one day he is going to make a half bath out of it.but with no basemant,its going to be a chore.

You weren't very far away from me at all. I got lucky in the sense that there was a bathroom on the West wall of the house, which shares a common wall with the new garage. I was able to tap hot and cold water off the back of the vanity, and dig a few feet down for the sewer. If I didn't have that as an option, I'm not too sure what I would have done.

I'm not too far from Chandler, can I come park my Monte in your "car house"? I'm refusing to call it a garage, that sounds too simple. lol

I'm half tempted to come and take the longest distance travelled award for the car-house-warming-party!

We have the same travertin in our bathrooms here ... very nice.

The Epoxy coating on the floor is done. What a debacle though. This is a super long story, but I’ll stick to the meaty parts.
- 1st company: Fired before they even started putting product down. They didn’t know squat about epoxy floors.

- 2nd company: Talked a great game, said everything right, and sounded like they were the ones. All of their prep work looked good, but the finished product was Turd . I complained and they came back, spent 4.5 hours grinding and sanding and then I spent 4 hours sanding parts I didn’t feel were good enough. They put the second coat down, it looked 100 times better, but still wasn’t acceptable. So, I ripped them a new one in the most professional way possible, and we agreed on me paying 3/8 of the original agreed upon price.

- 3rd company: I actually know the owner, and should have used him in the first place. Head Bang He came in and did an awesome job. I left for work, but returned to bubbles the size of quarters all over the floor. Turns out company 2 didn’t do as good of a job prepping the floor as originally though. So, company 3 came back out, sanded the whole floor again, filled in all of the pin-holes that caused the bubbles and recoated.

So, after a month of screw-ups and waiting, I have a nice new shiny floor. Then again with 4 freaking coats it better be……

Sorry for the bad camera phone pics.....

So what other than your Malibu is going in this car cave? Is there some mint, all original 66 SS you're hiding or something? I'm just saying, that if you do even own one, this car cave isnt being built to put some grocery getter mini-van in. lol

Not yet! Now, I'll have the space and room to do what I want. That's actually what I want to build next. LOVE my car, but always wanted a 66. Not going to happen any time soon, but eventually.

I'll probably start looking for a lift in a couple months. That's the reason the ceilings are so high.

A lift would be so nice! I wasnt trying to say you're Chevelle isnt nice, I love it, but that garage is huge, there has to be more plans for it! I love the 66's. At least now you can work on a project and do it in total comfort!

i think y`all might need a new set of teeth after that experiment! last time i checked, epoxy wasnt that slippery. smooth yes, but NOT slippery. or i might have just worn the wrong socks:)

as for the garage, it looks perfect, although that epoxy experience sounds like an expensive one!
