The tiles were removed from the foyer and under the refrigerator.
All done with the jack hammer now! Yay! ha.
The holes were patched in the drywall, outlet plates were
removed, and window frames painted.
Our contractor discovered that whoever laid the original floor
used plywood instead of tile board, then screwed and glued it
onto the sub-flooring. This error is what made all the tiles crack...
they couldn't expand and contract properly. In addition to that,
the floor is a different height than the floor with carpeting,
so that layer of plywood has to be removed
before the new floor can be laid.
You can see one sheet of plywood has been removed.
Slow going on that because it's hard to find the screws in the old grout.
After the screws are removed, it has to be pried up because of the glue!
When that is done, we'll be on to more interesting parts like
cabinets, paint and new flooring!
Keith made me this sign.
Thanks Keith...it's perfect!
