thanks guys, ya it is nice to see it coming together, with a bit of planning (and sticking to the plan) it works out. an honorary mention has to got out to whoever built this house in 1903, either they knew what they were doing or they got lucky..... the thing is maybe 1/8" to 3/16 out of square anywhere you check. once I get the bathroom finished it all moves down a level and I start gutting the kitchen and dinging room......

That's incredible that over 100 years later it's still so plumb. Has to be combination of great skill and luck that the soil types had limited settling and other geological factors didn't cause the house frame to warp.

ya I was thinking the same thing, built on a hill with a grade all around it most likely helped, not a very big house but solid.....after all the inside gets done the outside is getting a face lift as well....

Part is craftsmanship back then and the other part is it is real 2" x 4" lumber. The same with all the other wood, no downsized lumber. Back then the wood was dryer when used. Wet wood was not sent to so jobs. They would have laughed and sent wet wood back. Then again it was most likely old growth wood so that is way more stable.

thanks JC,
sharing a little jig I made up to install my bathroom floor tiles. Now as much as I would like to say that I built the room perfectly square I had no control over the 2 outside walls and I only added the 2 interior walls to complete the room. Now after checking the room seems to be pretty good but I don't want to assume anything when cutting the tiles. I'm installing 12"x 24" tile in a herringbone pattern so there will be lots of small angle cuts all around the outside of the room and I want to make sure the cuts stay consistent from the edge. This little jig is completely adjustable for angle and length...
