Spot on this video. Nice one.

ss S says:

Very informative! How long did the whole job take, walls and floor? Do you have any recommendations for an electric tile cutter that can also cut wood – Changing blade of course.

icdiddums says:

Thanks, i have one tile on the floor which has come loose, should i still apply the adhesive to the floor rather than the back of the tile. When i lifted the tile off it looks like the adhesive was applied to the back of the tile and not the floor

Jason Morgan says:

I like it when someone knows what they’re on about (well done)

Brian ONeil says:

Great DIY videos. Most notably the production is to the point. You speak at a digestible speed while visually performing the task as to not bore the audience. Some folks can’t chew bubble gum and walk at the same time. The beginner’s guide gives the viewer just enough info to generally understand what they’re signing up for and can make a confident informed decision to hire a craftsman or dive-in. Hopefully the latter.

So does the tile just start from the beneath the door of the bathroom ?
and what sort of flooring is in the corridor ?

Great tutorial, but I’m more interested in those tracksuit bottoms. They look so comfy, did you get them from Sports Direct in the sale? I also saw a bit of your back when you were doing the tiling, maybe you could edit that out; just a tip.
