My Project Planner- Tile Edition


Attention All Diy'ers

Don't let the name "Project Planner" fool you

There is so much more to it than that.



I designed My Project Planner - Tile Edition to

solve all the common problems that a DIY'er

can run into during a project.


I've lived it and still am, so I asked myself -



How can I help solve the problems that I run into everyday

when I'm out there installing?



I also wanted to answer the questions that many other DIY'ers

have asked me in the past.




  • My Project Planner- Tile editionTransitions Guide

This guide will show you everything you need to know about transitions. I explain how to transition to different types of flooring and show you exactly which transition you should be using. 

I also have clickable links to images of them so you can see what it really looks like.

And if you this also the link to where I buy these transitions and where you can also if you choose to do so.


  • Measuring Guides

I guide you through how to measure your project. We will discuss how to break large areas down for easier estimating.

I will also explain how much waste needs to be added to the total. 

There are drawings that you will see to better show you  this process.


  • Floor Prep Guide


This is a very important guide for a few reasons-

It is important to make sure your floor is flat before installing tile. So floor prep will be needed to fix these areas.

None of the home improvement stores sell a product that I would trust to install tile on top of.

The last thing you want is for your tile installation to fail because of a bad product. 

This Guide  will ensure that you do not use the wrong product on you floor and also I share with you the tools that you need for floor prep.


  • Checklists

This planner has checklists for all the tools, supplies and materials you will need. These checklists have been created with great detail and I didn't miss a thing.

Each tool, supplies and materials(excluding your tile of course) has clickable links to the tools I highly recommend.

These links are also the same place I get these items and they are available to you.


  • Materials list

This form has been designed for convenience. You will be able to write all of the tile that you choose in the columns provided.

This is really nice for keeping everything organized.

It also has sections for multiple rooms for those bigger projects.

I have also included sample lists to keep track of samples you get from different stores. 



* Plus a new edition



I also want to include a special bonus to help with your project even a little more!


  • My Project Budget Forms

There are two different forms that go together, the actual budget form and the allocated form.

Both of these forms have all the tools, supplies and materials entered. You just fill in the blanks on the items you are going to use.

These forms are great for estimating how much your project will cost.

Then use the allocated form when you spend the money.



I have put months into this planner to be sure it

would help

and benefit you with your project




Really an Awesome Tool!!

    where can I buy Hydroban or similar product?

    • Joe Letendre

      Hydroban is sold at any tile store that s3lls laticrete products. Otherwise you can buy it on Amazon. Most of the paintable membranes out there are pretty good, I just prefer hydroban and think it’s the best.
