Texas Room Day 26!

Today John has been busy laying tile! It really looks good. He starts by laying out the grid through the entire room, including the bath and closets. Then he cuts the small pieces that fit around corners and around pipes, etc. Then he starts putting down the thin set and laying the tile. He started back in the bathroom. It was tedious work, but since he had already cut everything, it was easier than it could have been. Once he turned the corner into the hallway it went quicker and then the lounge area promised to be a lot quicker. It is 5:30 now and they plan to finish. Probably not another hour's worth of work. It will have to sit overnight and he said he will be able to grout tomorrow. Then it has to sit for 24 hours, I think.

Lowe's called and they will be delivering on Thursday. Washing/dryer, water heater and refrigerator! Whoo hoo! We are getting there. While there is still a lot of work to do, it is getting closer to being finished. Still not sure if it will be done before we leave. We don't have a counter top or a cooktop, and we haven't heard if the cabinets are in yet or not.

Till next time. . .
