The Floor Project: Part 6

We seem to be making some great progress.  These photos are from 2 evenings ago, but there’s just going around the edges now, under kitchen appliances, etc; basically all of the annoying detail work that I’m really glad we’re paying someone to do.  There’s nothing better than coming home from work and seeing a huge change that you didn’t have to put any labor into.

Today he is grouting the main living area and hopefully finishing the details in the kitchen, as most of my prepped food has been consumed and we haven’t yet been kicked out of the kitchen.

And a detail shot.  Sorry for the thinset and pine needles

A couple days ago while they were laying the tile, our contractor’s wife (who sometimes helps him with short projects that he needs to complete quickly) said to him “I wish we had known about this kind of tile before we put in our hardwood floors.  Then our dogs wouldn’t have messed them up! You can’t even tell it’s tile!”  That always feels good.

I also heard from him “You picked a PRETTY HARD tile!  It takes forever to cut!”  So if you’re thinking of using Eleganza Hampton line tiles, keep that in mind; they’re super hard.  I assume that translates into tough to chip and unlikely to break.  I guess time will tell.

Last but not least, view from the sunken living room, which will be tackled when he returns from the trade show he’s going to next week.
