We are now officially in July. I have turned 46, and we are seeing the light at the end of the remodeling tunnel. Our contractors believe that by the end of July - they will pull away for good.
This past Sunday Mat and I started our project in our mudroom. The contractors announced that they would be out of our hair soon for a break, so we are going to use some of that free time to do some painting and this tiling.
Have we have done tiling before? No we have not. But You Tube is an amazing invention. We watched countless videos. Mat has a big brain. So we felt confident that we could do it......well enough. We had purchased the tile, but the first thing we have to do is cut the backerboard. We are putting backerboard down for a number of reasons, but the top reason is that we have to bring the floor level up to meet the level of our hardwood floors thoughout the rest of the house.
Sunday all we did was cut the backerboard. What a bear of a job. We could barely lift our arms after we had to cut it - by hand - for this entire room. There are a ton of angles and little crannies that it was time consuming. We bought 18 pieces of backerboard and we needed every one. Because we did break quite a few.
