Past couple of weeks I have had some small simple in and out projects. First, is just a small backsplash. Homeowner's design, 3x6 porcelain and a glass deco from Oceanside.

This shows that times are slow. I try to avoid slate stone (big fan of porcelain slate) and black grout. This one has both. Did not take a pic of the grouted splash. Was late and I was ready to go home. Tile was provided by owner. Bought at a great deal I am sure.

This week I had the opportunity to say thanks to a local veteran. A big thanks goes out to Florida Tile and Laticrete for their help in this project. I installed tile in a home being built by my local HBA for a local Veteran of the War on Terror. My Dad came by one day and helped me get the first floor knocked out. We tiled all bathrooms, laundry, kitchen and breakfast area.

here's a porcelain plank tile installation in a study/office we did last week in Sarasota, FL.
tile was 6x48 Ceramica Sant'Agnostino "Nut".
we also used the Tuscan Leveling System which help make the tile perfectly flat.

homeowners love it !

Everyone's stuff is looking great. Brian I really like those 6 x 48's, nice job on the install.
Here's the master in a house I'm on. This floor had 150 linear feet of double border with 25 inside and outside corners. None of the walls were square so it was tricky getting the border square everywhere with the basket weave. I'm glad to finally have it done so I can get on with my life.
