Tilling has began!!!

Since last week we have had painting finished, caesarstone installed, bricks cleaned, TV antenna going up today, and also tilling start today (yay, the progress just doesn't stop)
I received a call from Dean (SS) this morning asking me if i could out to the house straight away as the tilers were on site and about to start and they wanted to clarify with me the exact way we wanted the tilling set out, considering i had just arrived at work after to days off sick, i was a bit hesitant but I'm very lucky that i have a great boss, so off I went and Tristan was also close by so he meet me there, best to have both of us there so we can make these decisions together :) anyway they were very lovely guys, they were a little worried about "Beaumont Tiles" instructions and offered there opinion in setting out the feature in the both showers, which we were happy with, seems Beaumont didn't write in properly and it would have been to many small cuts in our big tiles, and also the splash back on the laundry bench top, is meant to stand at 200ml by metricon standards but because our wall tiles are 300ml they offered for them to be whole 300ml which we are much more happy with, Tristan and I then had a quick look at all the progress as we haven't been able to get inside of the house in a couple of weeks, then off back to work.. Silly us did not think to take any pictures.... Sorry guys, tiles should be finished by the end of next week so hopefully we will get some more then!!

Tash, welcome back, I was wondering what had happened to you. Hope you are feeling better now.

I was down at the estate today and saw the tilers van in the driveway, so figured out that was what ws being done.

They have really picked up the pace now, surely you must have a completion date?

I know Janine, i have been so slack, being sick is horrible, but im back now!!

Still no completion date :/ personally i think it could even be before the end of September, not to much left after tiles, just carpet, driveway, bath, shower screen, and little bits and peices really..
