Started My First Tile Floor Today


Well I've helped guys lay it before i basically used to just hand them the tiles and I guess I actually payed attention lol. I got the hallway done, three tiles fit perfectly down the hall and they were all level to each other and I stayed square. For all tile layers it was no thing but being my first one and looking good so far i'm pretty proud of it!

Re: Started My First Tile Floor Today


tough day for me as well. I bought a bunch of space shuttle spare parts at an auction down in Florida and had them hauled back here. Put everything together and wound up with enough parts to build 2 shuttles and still have some spares for them. I don't have room for them in a garage, so I plan to tarp them both.
