Tile Day

The pinwheel pattern of large tile squares (20") and smaller ones (13") is started at the center point of the room and worked toward the western corners. Robert and Jose ponder the next placement.

Jose and Neil reach the western wall and begin to fill in the gaps. Jose came to the United States 14 years ago from the Dominican Republic when he married a woman who had lived in the area and graduated from SUNY Geneseo. She went to his home country as a member of the Peace Corp and met Jose on a blind date.

Neil and Robert near the closet openings. Let's hope Neil doesn't tile himself into a corner!

Robert did all the cutting of the tile on their new wet saw. He explained, as a carpenter by trade, he was comfortable at the task and didn't know if he could trust his partners to make the correct cuts. Very little waste remained at the end of the day.
