If there was ever a kitchen that needed help that is it. Looks like a cool project. I know a good tile guy in your area...

I am no longer actively searching for work. Sh!t keeps falling in my lap though. After this house, 800 sq ft basement floor tile job & then master bath remodel.

& Rob's truck says "tile specialist".

Wow, how things change. Last time I was logged in Ang was throwing in the towel.

I knew it couldn't last..... your a ruined man like the rest of us.

Anyway, looks like a great project to get back in the game. Good luck and I'm so glad work is coming your way!!!!
