December 21st, 2008 - It’s A Real Slow Go

Well, it seems the bathroom will not be done in time for the holidays. The tile guy finally showed up on Thursday night and told us to call him when we are ready. He didn’t seem to think it was necessary to put the Kurdi (waterproof membrane) on the walls or the Ditra (another waterproof membrane) on the floor. He said he was the wrong guy for putting floor tiles on the 45 and then later said that it was passe.  I couldn’t picture the tiles on the 45 anyway so I think I’ll go with a brick pattern instead. It seems to me that maybe he doesn’t want the job. Needless to say, we are putting the membrane on the walls in the shower and on the floor. We are not taking any chances and we have had water damage and lots of mold so any overkill will certainly help. I bought primer and paint and have put on a coat of each. I will save the final coat of paint until everything is done so I can touch up everything while I’m at it.

 Now on to the quilting front. I have hardly sewn anything during this renovation. Last night I made a fabric basket and wrapped it up and forgot to take a picture of it. Darn. It is bigger than the previous one that I made. I think I’ll make another one today and show you that.

That’s all for now.

Talk to you later.
