Floor is done - Thanks for the resources here

I don't post a lot & have mostly just read what others have said and suggested, so I would like to say thanks for all the info I've found on this forum while I was (slowly) working on my renovations.

It took quite a while to even get to the floor, then more time to actually get it done - the attached photo shows the 8x48 wood plank porcelain tile that is finally down and grouted. I can find flaws in what I did if I look closely, but it is still better than what was done by people I hired in the past and I'm happy with the result.

Now to get the fireplace tiled, mantel built, bookcases built ... and on and on.

Thanks! If I had known what I was getting into with around 550 sq ft of tile, I might not have started.

I found grouting to be harder to do properly, the most tedious to clean up, and is probably the least well done part, to me anyway.
