How to Install a Garbage Disposal
Richard installed a Badger 100 ⅓ Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal [https://amzn.to/3py4QnY], which is manufactured by InSinkErator [https://insinkerator.emerson.com/en-us].
The other tools and materials he used to install the disposal, including the plumber’s putty, array of PVC piping, fittings, cleaner, and glue, and wrenches can all be found at home centers and plumbing supply houses.
How to Reface a Concrete Wall
Mark and Jenn refaced the concrete using a thin stone veneer. The material is Connecticut Fieldstone and was cut in a mosaic pattern for installation. The stone cap was made of 2” thick bluestone treads. Both were sourced by Plymouth Quarries [https://www.plymouthquarries.com/index.php].
To secure the thin stone to the wall and the bluestone to the top, Mark used a modified mortar [https://amzn.to/3k3P96E]. The mortar has an adhesive in it that helps the stone to stick to the wall.
The other tools Mark and Jenn used to reface the wall, including trowels, mallets, and the level, can all be found at home centers.
