Tile. Apparently Mike loves this stuff.

Mike continues to work on the bathroom. Aside from the shower everything has been dry walled. The shower is framed in and the pocket door has been installed. And this weekend, after two and a half hours in the hardware store, we finally picked out tile.

I guess now we just have to figure out how to lay the tile. I sat on a bucket and watched Mike lay out several different patterns.

masonry style


The masonry style was my favorite of the evening. Check it out from a distance.

Then he made me sit back down on the bucket and he gave me a glimpse of my future dream shower.

007_showertileThe shower is going to be so sweet. The whole bathroom is going to be sweet – the sweetest room in the house. Once it’s done I’m just going to hang out in there. I’ll take my meals sitting in the tub!
