I am rather impressed with myself. A few weeks ago, I was scratching my chin, wondering what to do with this basement. Now, I am standing on brand new tile throughout the entire thing. I think I might be amazing.
So, after five short days, the tile guys completed the job and left. I thought it would take two…and it may have if I was doing it. I tend to work long hours. These guys liked to work for a few hours a day. I will give them credit for doing a really good installation job though. Installing tile is a little weird. The installer is kind of bound by drying time, so they can only do so much.
Here are some photos of the finished job…
The reason I say they did a good installation is because I watched him place each tile very carefully. He didn’t just slap them down. He put a little extra thin-set on the corners and after the tile was down, he made sure it was solid. I am assuming some tile installers might not do that.
So now, all I need to do is seal the grout, paint the base moulding and put it back on the walls. Then, we are going to bring one couch down there and set up the TV and all the electronics.
