- Part 2: Repairing Plaster and Installing Ceramic Shower Tiles
- Bob heads to the library to discuss the plaster patchwork in progress. Plaster buttons are installed to hold the new metal mesh to the existing lath. Structo-Lite and Durabond are then applied and feathered to match the surrounding original plaster. Bob then visits with Ed Zywusko, who is installing ceramic tile in a guest bathroom on the second floor. The tiles are from Spain, Portugal, and Italy, lending a very Mediterranean feel to the shower stall. Ed demonstrates the process of applying the mortar and setting the tiles in place.
