Bathroom Renovation – Day 17

The carpenter came back this morning to fit off the accessories. He installed two towel rails, finished off the strip drain for the shower, rehung the toilet and bathroom doors and put a door stop in the bathroom.

In the afternoon a tiler came out to silicon all the ‘control joints’. According to The Floor Elf, a control joint  is ‘one grout line, all the way down the length of your installation, that is filled with colored silicone or caulk rather than grout. The purpose of a soft joint is to allow movement in your installation without cracking tiles or grout. When placed properly it will absorb any ‘normal’ seasonal and structural movements inherent in structures.’
