The world according to Andrea

work of art….sorta

on January 23, 2009

andrea-camera-016Joey and I spent the better half of two days tiling our tub surround.  I think that if our marriage survives this remodeling project, it will survive anything.  We were driving each other crazy the entire time. I spread the thinset and laid the tiles, while Joey measured and cut the tiles.  We make a pretty good team when we’re not yelling at each other.

Things would have been much easier if our house was not so crooked.  I don’t think that any of our walls are straight or level, which made laying the tile a huge pain in the neck.  We still have a few stray tiles to get done and the ceiling still to go.  We had to put an end to it because the water in the tile saw kept freezing.

We’ve also had a problem getting the cabinet company to come back to finish installing the cabinets.  The guy came to start and never has come back.  He makes appointments and then never shows up.  I’m getting very frustrated with them.

One day, this will all be over and I will look back and laugh….I hope.

    Wow! That looks great! I feel your pain about people making appointments and then not showing up! Who do they think they are!!! We were supposed to get our counters done in the basement this weekend, but now the guy is not coming until tuesday! It is so frustrating!
    When your bathroom is all done I want to come see it, it is looking really good! Great work!
