Glass

We have some finishing touches to make on our master bathroom (a rather significant amount of finishing touches), but really we are simply waiting on glass. 2 glass mirrors for the vanity and 1 glass door for the shower.  Given the flat, threshold free shower we are installing a frameless glass door.   We are hopeful that

What Problems?!

The tile in our master bathroom is finally done and sealed!  Trent cut and put it all in place, then he did the grout while I hurried along behind him wiping, wiping and still wiping up the excess.  If you’ve done tile work, you know exactly how enjoyable this job is.  We did happen to

Very Pleased

I’m very pleased with how the tile in our master bathroom is turning out.  Trent worked on it all week (during his evenings) and all weekend.  It’s up and now we simply need to grout the entire room (I can actually help with this phase!).  Once that is dry and sealed, we can start putting
