comment How to finish wood stair treads?
Do the polyurethane seems "plastic"? I want to avoid this look, this is why I'm prone to use oil or some wax.

Hum, I'm asking that because in Brazil hardwood floors aren't common, so people don't really know how to deal with them.

comment How to tile a “wet room” style bathroom?
We do have the 30x30 sheets of 2.5 and 5 cm tiles here too, but they are usually used just for accent or some details, as they are VERY expensive. They START costing around 9 time as much as regular tiles (as they are sold per sheet instead of square meter, and each sheet is usually more expensive than a single square meter of "regular tile").

comment How to prevent Epoxy from sagging/dripping
Just did the anchoring today. It was very hard to fill the whole hole with epoxy (it had a huge void inside the concrete) and the tape idea doesn't work very nicely because epoxy prevent everything from sticking to it, no matter how much I cleaned around the hole. In the end I wrapped tape around the bolt enough to "plug" the hole.

comment How to prevent Epoxy from sagging/dripping
We are far from sea and rivers here, so no boat stores around. But I like the gasket idea. I can measure the depth, put a gasket around it and use the gasket as a pressure holder for the bolt.

comment How can I lift buckets of mortar to second floor?
I think that would work nicely, I just need to figure out a way to make it a bit higher so that I can pull the bucket all the way up and bit away from the wall so that the bucket doesn't drag along it.

Concrete pump is overkill, and mixing materials up there is bad because of limited space to work. Each slab is 1.5x5.5 meters
