Finding a straight line

Family and friends have been asking what's up after Shoe passed away and I'm here to say it's just back to work. I'm still staying in Shoe's old house and have asked for a two week extension into mid-May as I'll have a house sitting job starting then. Decided to house sit rather than live in the new house with all the finish work that needs to be done. That brings me to the floors they are working on now. When finished I'll let the workers go and I estimate in about 2 weeks.

So finding a straight line (or wall) in my house is not easy. Remember this started as a family project with not the best builders. The current guys have done their best to correct many of the issues but moving walls was not one of them.

Starting at the front door and wall we ran a line of tile into the dining room. From there through two doorways to the back room. Another over to the back door. This pattern will give an overall appearance of organized tiles but tile sizes along walls will vary as needed and will vary a lot.

And the filling in begins


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
