Here is the first bit of thin-set that was put down for the tile. We first moved in all the furniture to make sure everything would fit - then we cleaned up everything. Got ready for tiling - and took off. This thin-set is some special blend that bends and can handle really hot and cold temperatures.
Here is what the kitchen area looks like - still the edges to do - but it is coming along.
Happy smiles of a job well done and a nice cold beer in hand!
