The tile setters started working 2 days ago and basically laid the floors of the two bathrooms in the first day.
The master bathroom floor is basketweave Carrera marble with a medium grey dot.
I ordered plenty for the entire project because I calculated the square footage and added 10%. Since I had to buy full boxes of tile I rounded down just a little bit.
Unfortunately I had purchased the conservatory bathroom tile first and I forgot about the 10% rule. So stupid, but when I’m sitting in front of the computer ordering tile from Home Depot, what did I know?
After the tile arrived, I knew the conservatory floor tile would be close. Apparently too close since I needed to order 6 more sheets. I immediately hopped online to order a few more tiles: 5 tiles would incur a $9.45 shipping charge while 6 tiles (at $7.95 each) would be shipped for free.
The tile setters are not grouting the tile until all the tile — both floors and walls — is set. I’ve spent the whole day texting “Tee hee hee” to Charlie. He concurs.
Do building materials tickle your fancy? What does?
