During the tile installation, The Mister and my Father-In-Law spent a long, cold weekend installing new ceramic tile in the laundry, pantry, and bathroom. We had purchased the Ditra underlayment system from HomeDepot hoping that it would allow us to lay tile directly over the existing floor in the laundry room. We had only the weekend to complete 200 sf of tile before the contractors returned on Monday morning to continue their work. The Mister worked from Friday after work to Monday morning to get the tile installed, grouted, and sealed. It was exhausting and we are so grateful to my FIL for showing us the steps to tackle tile and for assisting us with the installation and performing all of the tile cuts. The Mister and FIL worked tirelessly to get all of the tile cut, laid, and grouted before the contractors returned to work on Monday morning. They worked long into the night installing tile by lamp light as the overhead lights were not yet connected in the house. My FIL even cut the tiles by flashlight as the exterior lights were also disconnected! I am so thankful for these dedicated men!
When the contractors returned to the jobsite, they reinstalled the water heater and connected the overhead lights. No other work was performed in the Laundry room and Water Heater closet until we moved into our home.
