tile work - in progress - little red things to flatten
Tile Work in progress -
using 12 by 24 field tile that is porcelain marble. Much lovelier than I expected. And a bonus is that there are no "repeats" along with the fact the tile was very inexpensive (can I say "cheap"?) at $2.50 per sq ft. Not finished yet so guess I should withhold final judgement.
For anyone interested in the "process", note the little red "thingies" - my tile guy explained to me that you have a little gun tile tool that you use for each of these red "thingies" that pulls out the air behind the tile and flattens the tile as much as possible, preventing that raised edge feature that happens sometimes on jobs where you don't want a raised edge.
Tiling is a lot more complicated than I expected and that includes picking out the right tile.
My tile guy says he has a whole notebook of pictures of jobs where his client wanted real marble instead of "fake" and then had the unfortunate experience of it being messed up by the wrong cleaning product in the wrong hands (i.e. maid or mother-in-law, etc).
