  1. Day 14 – Top grouted… End in sight!

    October 17, 2011 by Felix

    Followed the instructions on the grout box and all went smoothly. Wish I had another sponge or two. Found myself rinsing the one I had every 2 minutes.

  2. Day 11 – Got the EDGES Finally!

    October 10, 2011 by Felix

    Finally got the 14 one-foot black granite edges I needed! My challenge was how they were going to stay put as the mastic got hard enough to hold them in place. I had an idea of what I needed but wasn’t sure if it existed and sure enough…. the 3-way clamp! At $8 each, I did NOT want to buy 14 of them to get it all done at once so I just bought 3 and will just have to do 3 at a time. If I get up 1/2 hour earlier each day, I could then do 6 a day if it hardens enough in 12 hours.

    Then, I grouted the walls with just plain white, non-sanded grout. Nothing to this really. Mix, spread, wait, wipe, wait, wipe, wipe, wipe.

    Running total: $745


  3. Day 6 – “Cutting Corners”

    September 18, 2011 by Felix

    I knew, going into this, that deciding to go “diamond” with the bartop was going to mean extra cutting. Then, I decide to add the blue accents using the left over pool tiles and that really added to the corner cutting.
