Here are Steve, his employee Chris, and Grace putting in the concrete backer board on Thursday night.
Here are Grace and Steve right before he laid the first tile.
Here's Steve in his Gorton's Fish Stick guy costume. Snort! Poor guy. He was using his dad's (crappy) wet saw to cut the tile and his sleeves and front of his shirt were getting soaked. No big deal normally, but it was really cold today and his sleeves kept freezing. So he put on his rain gear and had at it. LMAO!
Here's the floor, done except for grouting it. The empty space in the center is where the stovetop on our island will go. Oh, and the grout is a charcoal gray that matches the tile, so the lines won't look white like they do in these pictures.
