New Floors Project

A couple of years ago we had new floors installed in all rooms except the guest bath and our office.  We're glad we waited for those two rooms because we finally saw the type tile we wanted to put down.  But we would probably still be putting off the decision had we not received a call from the tile guy who did the other rooms.  He said he was between jobs and was looking for something to do until his next job.

We thought about it for a couple of seconds and said come on...

By the next morning we had the tile, thin set, and grout waiting for him to do the guest bath.  No sooner than we started to see how the new tile looked, we told him to do the office too.  And off to Home Depot for more tile.

It took him all day to take up the old flooring (tile in the bath and wood parquet in the office) and install the new tile.  But he did each room in a single day.  We were quite pleased.

He came back the next day and laid the grout and cleaned everything.  He also replaced a couple of broken tiles on our porch and repaired some missing grout.

Here's some photos:

We really love the grain texture and light color of the tile.

Two more projects out of the way.
