I had a busy weekend, but was able to work on the tiling project a little. I was able to get two more tiles cut; probably one of the most technically difficult pieces because of all the curves.

The tile on the right is the very back of the sink where the faucet mounts. This was a difficult piece because I had to plunge cut two holes with a dry diamond rotobit which causes a lot of vibration and a strong possibility to crack the tile. The tile on the left is difficult for similar reasons as the other tile and it has the most intricate shape around the sink out of all of the sink tiles.

I was lining the tiles up this morning so I could adhere them to the counter top and realized that I made an error while cutting the last sink tile.

Where the sharpie is pointing at in this picture is where the bullnosed edge is supposed to stop, but I was not paying attention when I bullnosed this piece. So, now I have to redo this piece (1-1.5 hrs of wasted time AAAAHHHH!) I hope the "third times a charm" rule does not apply here. Hopefully I can be attentive and do it correctly on the second try.

You could just claim it's a groove to capture grease from the cooktop .

and .... bet you're wishin' you had a drop-in sink about now ...

I have got to a section of the job where my wife is able to help a little.

She was able to get the tile sealed on the nightstand and the bathroom counters. She did the grout too, such a big help.

I was able to re-cut the tile that I messed up on earlier this week and get the remaining tiles for the kitchen counter install.

Well.....almost all of them, I have to wait for the top surface tiles to set before I can install the last two tiles in the photo above. I should have them done early morning before I head off to work. Then my wife is going to seal the tile before I get home.

One more little end table to finish in the living area and this project will be done!

We are going to be installing decorative plastic wall panels. If all goes well I should be installing these next weekend.

I was able to get the remaining two tile pieces on late last night, now my wife is cleaning and sealing everything today while I'm at work.

The tile in the kitchen in sealed, so I'm moving on to the last of the tile project. I had to make a new counter top for a small table in the living area. I was able to get the wood cut out and the sides glues to the top.

Thank you DeaconFrost. It looks like you have a 37'er; I like the floor plan on those.
