Tiler more

June 7, 2011

I HAD to go down to the house today (what a shame) to deliver our family of tilers an extra 60 white 100x300 tiles for the laundry.

No, don't panic, Carlisle didn't make a boo boo.  We did a little cashie extension to the bench top in our laundry and coz our SS is a seriously top guy, he let us buy the extra tiles, throw Mr. Smiley a little extra cash for his labour, and happy days - our whole laundry wall will be tiled.

I know, stop with the chit chat and show us the piccies already....

Up over the bath we've got "Loft - Dark Chocolate" in 400mm x 400mm.  This will go on the floor & shower base too.  The walls are just white 200mm x 400mm which we have on the shower walls too. 

Except for the yummy scrummy airstrip of Nickel Plus.  Still can't get a decent photo :(

I've managed to cull the 72 pics I took tonight of the ensuite down to these few...





This stage of the build is making it soooo hard to find the motivation to go to work every day.  I really just want to camp out at the house and break into applause with every tile that's laid.

Can anyone tell me what comes after the tiles are done?

I am hearing you...I really want to just think about all things house at the moment. I want it finished tomorrow and I want to move in the next day...
Looking lovely by the way. Tiles are really hard to show off in a photo but trust me I can see just how lovely they are.

So glad to see you are taking some time off work for a better purpose!!!! It's looking so great, I love your feature tiles, what the heck were you stressing about?????

You could have called into Debs and had tea with us! I am at the point where I am getting so excited about every bit of wood that goes up, I will be orgasmic by your stage!!! (am I allowed to say that?)

Hahaha what a shame, love it!! Thoes feature tiles of yours are gorgeous and your bathrooms look amazing, very jealous of your extention to the laundry tiles, your SS sounds like a great guy :)

Romani said...

everything is coming together nicely for you Reinsey..! love the rich look that your nicol feature strip adds to your whole house..Was it very expensive for you to upgrade to have them..?

Reinsey said...

Ladies,
I can assure you that I WAS at work yesterday, but left a little earlier to go do my thang. Otherwise I would have def called in for a coffee and catch up :)

JayJay said...

Just got the point to your subject heading, maybe you should have added "Merry, Tiler More". Painted already? I had to check a few photos to see if painting had been done, but I guess I was looking at the areas that needed a mirror. Umm what's next? The final stretch, FIT OUTS!

LouNeen said...

WOW ! It is looking fantastic. Great that your SS will allow you to tile extra. So close hope it keeps going at this rate!

Reinsey said...

Romani - yes they were a bit on the pricey side, but seeing them all finished tonight, I don't regret the spend one little bit :)
