Here We Go Again!

Woo-hoo!! Drew is laying out the line for the bottom course of backsplash tiles.

As soon as the boys are finished with dinner (canned ravioli for the kidsters, tonight), they'll start setting up the tile saw and the canopy on the back patio. For some reason (probably having to do with our sanctification), it seems that whenever we rent the tile saw, we have cloudy, cold, wet weather.

The cuts for the backsplash will be easier than the cuts for the counters were. We're also hoping to get a bit of an assembly line going, with Nathan and Drew cutting and me actually sticking tiles to the wall. Benjamin and Judith will take turns cleaning out the grout lines between all the little mosaic tiles while the thinset is still wet. We're hoping to get all the cuts done for the island this weekend, too. We'll lay it out with spacers on the peninsula and cut everything we need to cut. Then we can continue to lay tile on the island, desk, and desk's backsplash after we return the saw and with no time deadline looming over us: a batch of thinset here, a batch there, and soon we'll be done!

I hope to post pictures and updates as the work progresses, with photos of the finished product when all is said and done. If you care, keep checking back. If you don't, well, I think I can live with that.
