Was sick over Christmas so didn't get as much done as I wanted but I did manage to get most of the doors painted and started tiling.

I really hate drywall, but I've got people asking me to do their basements when I'm done with mine. smile

Maybe a dumb question Ben, but what does the masking tape mark out for you that's taped on top of the tiles?

It's looking great, Ben. I've done some tiling, it is VERY hard on the knees for sure.

I just did that to make a note of the first set of tiles I had layed from the day before. That pic is after adding some additional ones. Before you all say "that's all?" I also finished doing the shower with 6x6 tiles and the landing. It always amazes me how long it takes to do things like this. I even had my brother in law around some of the time helping cutting tiles for me. cry

Also, I have some make shift knee pads that I use made out of bubble wrap. They actually work about as good as a nice pair of real knee pads. I'm just too fat and out of shape to do this stuff efficiently. laugh
