To set your ceramic tile flooring, you’ll also need mortar and grout. These are easily purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. You’ll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner. If the floor you’re covering with ceramic tile flooring is other than concrete, you’ll either have to lay concrete first or lay concrete backing boards. The floor in which you’ll install your ceramic tile flooring must be as even as possible. If it’s not, you’ll have to even it out first. Repair all holes and cracks in the floor and clean it thoroughly prior to beginning work.
The informal lifestyle of California became popular as early as the late 1940s and magazines began to promote casual living as the ideal. Influences such as courtyards, patios and other Spanish colonial architectural details were embraced and played upon. What was known as the front porch or veranda, was moved from the front to the back of the house and heralded the arrival of a significant lifestyle change. Families now preferred the privacy of their back yard rather than sitting on the front porch watching traffic.
A house is built with hands, but a home is built with hearts - so the old saying goes. However, too much choice in the form of floor plans can be confusing sometimes. Therefore, an understanding of the different styles and how they suit the individual’s needs and tastes is an essential step in the process of building a home. The bungalow floor plan, for example, suits a laid-back and comfortable lifestyle. It is a popular floor plan throughout America. They are smaller than other modern floor plans. However, they are extremely livable because the living area is open and planned for ease of access. The roof hangs low, the rafters and ridge beams are uncovered, and porches are large, with narrowed quadrangular columns.
By and large, almost any residential floor plan can be adapted to a log home, but there are substantial differences and considerations that need to be addressed. One such example is that of room dimensions as they relate to the diameter of the logs you will be utilizing. A custom handcrafted home made from 20\" diameter logs will have a different footprint than one requiring 6\" milled logs. If this is the first time you will be dealing with a log home manufacturer or architect, make sure you are comparing ’apples to apples’ when discussing interior dimensions. If you want a room to be 14’ wide, make certain that your designer knows that you want the interior of the room to have 14’ of open clearance and not measured from the center of the corresponding logs. Using the example above, your 14’ room could shrink to 12’ if such presumptions are not understood.
