A Tile of Two Tailors..No.. A Tale of Two Tilers

This weekend was the start of our big  bathroom tile project.

We decided on using 18″ travertine floor tiles so we would have fewer grout lines. We also picked up some slate mosaic tiles for accent. I was a bit nervous abut laying such heavy tiles on a horizontal surface so we enlisted the help of Tile installer Ivan & and his apprentice, Bryant.

Fitting the tiles in and around the niche was a bit of a challenge and there were a lot of cuts due to the diamond pattern. I’m glad I didn’t have to figure it out.

Sunday turned out to be a bit of a rainy day so we set up a covered area on the East side so Bryant wouldn’t have to be out in the elements when cutting the tiles.


Jeff and I worked in the kitchen area installing edge banding on the countertops.  We also put up a small divider wall between the edge of the counter and refrigerator. (picture to the left)  This also gave us a spot to put in another electrical outlet.  You cant have too many of those.


We also discovered a great place for guests to stay since we are “living” in the guest room until we build the master bed room.  Anyone want to come for a visit? :-)

Just Kidding :-)  We do have a comfy couch though.
