Welcome to another show of So You’re Renovating Cottage edition. We are at forth week of our renovation rampage and we ain’t over yet since we have 10 more weeks to go If you just logged on, you need to know that this house was almost just a cabin that we lifted up with crane to redo the foundations. We have added an extra floor, in reinforced concrete, reconstructed the third floor from the old cottage, re did the roof added seven skylights, replaced all doors by state of the art energy saving products, insulated every walls and roofs, built interior partition, soundproofed them, plumbing, electricity, ventilation, built new balconies and today, I believe we will start putting up gypsum boards. We are just about to decorate! Ya sure! By the way, we have a little contest here. You can go on the So You’re Renovating.com and vote for your preferred handy-friend. The handy friend that collects more vote will win at the end of the series the help of our renovation team to renovate:……… is own place. Our Handy-friends are:……… Retrospective 30 sec. Last week retrospective 30 sec. Last week we saw: Eric install a ventilation unit for the bathroom and a central vacuum system. Jenna completed the exterior balcony using 100% recycled plastic decking and soundproof a few walls. Despite of the apprehension our handy-hosts have been quite successful and I am sure that this week we will have, again, lots of fun. Job assignments: A/ Install a new design state of the art shower stall in the basement B/ Sound proof walls and ceilings for the bedrooms C/ Complete the floating deck using innovative composite new decking material. Alternative: D/ Level patio E/ Install gypse for the cathedral ceiling. Entrevue: The importance of good doors and windows. A/ Install a new design state of the art shower stall in the basement To install a superb state of the art full-equipped shower like this one, you need to construct an alcove in accordance with the table dimensions from the supplier, Maax in this case. The structure measurments must be verified against the unit to enssure a proper fit. That means you must order and get the unit shipped before you start the constuction of the alcove. Here we must construct an alcove of approximately 4 feet long by 3 feet wide and about 7 feet high. The greatest thing about this shower mutli-jets full equipped is that all the plumbing has already been done. You just need to hook the hot and cold water and be carefull not to mix them up! OK, with the instructions from the manufacturer, that are by the way very well written, you should be able to install this shower in a few hours believe it or not! Isee you later….. It is mandatory to include an access to the plumbing connctions measuring at least 30 inches by 28 inches. The top part of the framework will be installed after the unit has been position. Sectional units have to be assembled. Apply silicone between the flanges and do not over-tighten the screws. Douche Stamina An oasis of tranquility with ample room and improved ergonomics Comfortable seating and footrests for greater relaxation Designed specifically to include the MAAX IESR system for a revitalizing shower experience High inside height Spacious 36-in. wide shower Textured bottom Hey your’re almost done! You need to install the top part of the framework and hook the hot and cold water and make sure the plumbing is completely watertight. Stock shot… Does it work??? (open water) We need to install the rubber seal for the up-coming door. For maximum adhesion of the double-face tape it is better to install the seal and wait 12 to 24 hours before installing the door. Maax IES MAAX IES comes complete with thermostatic valve, body jets, hand shower on rail bar, showerhead, backjets and water tester. Installation is simple, requiring only hot-and cold water hookup. All of its plumbing components, including the body jest, come factory-installed, ensuring optimum configuraton and operation. And to complete this massage therapy, the exclusive Rainmax system allows water to ently fall like delicate raindrops through a myriad of tiny perforations in the roof cap. Other options : AudioMax Steamax Developed with the help pf assage therapists, Maax IES (Integrated Energizing System) is designed to deliver a truly energizing shower experience.

B/ Sound proof walls and ceilings for the bedrooms Today, controlling noise means comfort. Whether you’re buying a home or renovating, did you know that you can reduce noise by as much as 50% very easily, simply by installing resilient channels and acoustical batts. Last week our handy opera-singer gave us an acoustical test. To make sure you are successful soundproofing you interior, you need to take your time a adjust perfectly the Fiberglas acoustical batts. This is exactly what we will be doing today with…….. SYR 2002 #10 10184001 10184622 10192203 10193907 10195300 10201026 10214612 10215816 10245117 10250220 SYR 2002 #12 12135304 12140426 12140719 12144513 12150021 12150506 12165224 12172016 12192112 12192812 The trouble spots to insulate are interior walls between bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms. If someone takes a shower or flushes a toilet, it won’t wake you up. It is a good idea to also wrap noisy water pipes. Installing acoustical batts is so easy that you can do it yourself. Simply install the batts between the studs. Then nail resilient channels across the studs according to manufacturer’s instructions. These light metal strips provide a break to prevent sound waves from passing through the studs and into the drywall. Fasten the drywall to the resilient channels with screws. Ensure screws do not touch framing. To control the passage of noise through a ceiling, place the acoustical batts between the floor joists and then attach the resilient channels and complete the job with drywall. Where optimum noise control is desired, weather stripped solid wood core doors should be used. Walls studs should be disconnected from the structure by placing a sill gasket underneath and above. Hey you did pretty good….. For optimum sound reduction, light switches and outlets should not be constructed back-to-back. Also, piping should be isolated from surrounding structures with resilient mounts. Cracks and holes around windows, doors and electrical outlets make it easy for noise to travel through your home. Seal them with a minimal expanding foam sealant. Tips Billboard: Owens Corning Installing acoustical batts is very easy. You can reduce noise by as much as 50% very easily, simply by installing resilient channels and acoustical batts. Light switches and outlets should not be constructed back-to-back C/ Complete the floating deck using innovative composite new decking material. The construction of a floating deck is one of the funniest and most satisfying project you can think of. First you need a permit form your local municipality. What’s important is that you only use environmentally friendly material. Next, you need to build the lightest frame possible so you don’t sink! Aluminum and wood are the two choices. Here we went for a 2/8 wood frame that sits on 1 by 6 planks. The Styrofoam logs are underneath the planks supporting the whole structure. We simply tied them up with some nautical strings. We have assemble the frame, the planks and the Styrofoam logs on the ground. The rest of the deck should be preferably assemble on water so you save on energy putting it to water. By the way, once the deck in the water, it can stay there all year round if it is on a quiete lake like this one. You will need to remove the deck from the water in the winter in places where there are currents and ice movements. Now we will put the deck down using new innovative long lasting composite plastic. Are we ready to board, come on sailor let’s get going!!! Installation Perma Deck Elegance saws and cuts cleanly, so sanding and finishing is practically eliminated but the best of all is that this decking is precolored, meaning that staining, painting or sealing is not necessary. You will be thankful every spring guaranteed. Carbide tipped blades and bits are recommended for cutting and routing to ensure the best work quality. For best results, Elegance should be installed with high quality screws such as stainless steel and should be predrilled. Then apply screw caps for a prefect finish. Pre-drill holes (5/16-in diam.) into each plank. Counter sink all holes (1/2-in.diam.) at a depth of 3/8 in. Bits design to do both jobs at once exists. The typical decking board installation is 16 inches on centre, when boards are installed perpendicularly and 12 inches on centre when the boards are installed at 45 degree angle with boards hanging over rim joists no more than two inches. A 1/8 of an inch gap is required when installing boards side by side or around other structural features such as railing posts or planters to allow for temperature based expansion and contraction of the plank. Perma Deck Elegance is a wood polymer composite decking made from hardwood. Since we use hardwood in our wood polymer composite, our product is stiffer, more resistant to staining, and will fade less than wood polymers composites using soft woods. Hello hello , it will be soon the time to use this deck for our own pleasure what do you think. Have you noticed the particularity of this unique embossing process that enables us to have some variety in the pattern. It is very nice and very safe since this texture provides a non-slip surface, which is perfect for a deck on the water or around a pool. Three very nice colors are available. This new type of decking features many advantages: It is more durable than traditional wood decking. It will not rot or decay; It is treated with a unique formula designed to enhance colour. It can be install like traditional wood; No staining, sealing or painting required; Environmentally-friendly; Termite resistant; Chemical and stain resistant; Non-slip surface wet or dries. Embossing variations Tips Billboard: Logo Perma-Deck Perma-Deck is more durable than traditional wood decking. It is environmentally friendly; It will not rot or decay; Finally, its embossing variations provide a non-slip surface wet or dry. General pro-Environment segment We wanted to renovate a country house to put the highlight on the environment. Our homes play a very important part in the way we live and consume. Homes affect our energy consumption, waste production, and pretty much everything else. Your home, the way it is built, the material that were used, its design and its style all play a decisive role on your behavior. Make sure that when you renovate, you take these transformations as an opportunity to improve your energy efficiency, reduce your waste and recycle. When you think renovations, think environmentally friendly Alternative: D/ Level patio E/ Install gypse for the cathedral ceiling. D/ Level patio We saw in another So You’re Renovating TV show that when you are building a patio, it is always preferable to put the supporting columns on the foundations instead of pouring them in concrete. Especially if you just moved in a new house, the soil around the house has not stabilised yet and the action of freezing and thawing will sure make your new patio dance a little. And this is exactly what happened here. Let’s get it straight! The way to go is to use another columns similar to the one supporting the patio and a hydraulic jack. You place the column and the jack underneath a beam and jack it up! You can then use a concrete plate or in our case rearrange the ground and you can put the patio back down. E/ Install gypse for the cathedral ceiling. 3/7 To complete our cathedral ceiling, we choose to use gypsum boards. Gypsum is an excellent material to finish inside walls. It’s very economical and it’s also made out of a fire-retardant material You really need to take your time when you are installing gypsum boards. nd this means beginning by installing gypsum boards. Installing gypsum boards the right way will make joint finishing much easier and prevent the joints from cracking or splitting apart. To reduce the amount of linear feet of joints, we will install the longest boards available, which are 12 feet long. To lift these panels off the ground and specially to keep them up while we screw them in, we rented this unusual but very practical tool that you can find in any good rental store. Ok. Get it up! 05 10211522 10221518 05 10231424 10234110 1:26 First, screw the boards in the middle then on the sides and extremities. Avoid all joints over or on the side of doors and windows as they will have a tendency to split apart in these areas. Drive in the screws every twelve inches on the ceiling, and every sixteen inches on the wall, and put them at least 3/8-inch away from the side of every board. Gypsum boards must be installed with their seams unaligned. So that wasn’t so bad after all, using the funky tool and with a little help of our super renovators team……. Interview: The importance of your doors and windows.
