On My Knees Again

We are still working on the remodeling of the bio lab.  The last two days, we have been laying new tile after a road trip to Houston to buy the tiles that matched the old ones.  That same trip, we stopped in at Home Depot to buy more supplies...more cabinets, trim, etc.
It was a fun trip with lunch included.

I got to do the pasting while Jenny pressed the tiles in place. George got into the act in the last half of the floor.  In the photo, we are wiping up excess glue, while Wallace is finishing up the baseboard under a desk area to the left of the picture.

As you may recall, we tore down three walls, opening up the area.

We now have the walls out, have moved some of the cabinets back in place and put up the folding room divider.

This is where we finished the first day of laying the tile. I should have closed the door to get the full effect, darn it.

We will be adding more lighting in the ceiling and putting up more cabinets when we are through with the floor.

It is all coming together nicely and everyone is ready for it to be finished.

The floor is finished and the guys are putting up trim.

Some of the cabinets have now been installed (boy does that get old, shifting them from one place to the the next)!!!  Now where is that hammer?  Tools got moved around too. 

Now home to my favorite steak, New York strip!!!

Put them on the grill, five minutes each side and boy are they great.

Man, am I sore!!!

Until next time...


  1. oh for an HEB anywhere else but Texas...

  2. That's a lot of work!

    I prefer a rib eye or filet mignon, myself. ;)

  3. I'm not much for steak, but I'd sure indulged in a glass of wine after all that work!

  4. It looks like you've done a ton of work. They'll appreciate it for years to come.
