Episode 54- Tiling, tadaaaahh!!

sept13 1162Renovation, restoration, mitigation..

As a follow up to Episodes 49 & 50 I would like to announce that we managed to hack out the hairline cracked tile without damaging it’s neighbours and finished the floor.

I have even grouted it!! Trevor does not grout, nor does he “cut in”, plaster, fill cracks or do anything the least bit twiddly. (see earlier posts) he did however ensure that he laid the tiles level with each other and that they were evenly spaced (that’s a laugh as b****r all else in the French house is on an even keel!)

The shower room floor is very very old and slopes eversoslightly and ..you know what..? IT DOESN’T MATTER  and if I wanted perfect we would have built or bought a featureless box.
