Saddle issue:2 floor heights tile & wood
My skills are advanced beginner, but I’m always willing to learn.
Problem solving help please. Years ago, I had a bathroom remodeled – basically gutted and rebuilt. I was young and naive and didn’t think to specify that the contractor should finish the connection between the tile floor and the hall. Now I need to do it, because I’m selling my house, but I’m truly puzzled about the best way to go about it.
The kicker – the tile floor is 1 ” higher than the hall floor and the tile ends at the outside of the door jamb. [Sloppy work which I didn’t know enough to inspect.] The jamb has molding (this is an old house) so that there is 1.5 inches to the molding piece in the center. This center has a depth of 3.25 inches. So I figure that I have to somehow create an inch step up, that is 4.75 inches wide. Is that right? How do I do it so it looks right? I just realized that I could attach a picture ( I love the web, I love the web) to help you understand.
The width of the jamb in the middle is 29″.
Have I explained it clearly enough to get help? Thanks for helping.
