It was a long weekend and it feels like I pissed it away.
I finally finished hanging the wall tile in the bathroom.
Then as I was pulling out the spacers, a section of tiles came down onto me. The tile needs 90% contact with the wall and you can see from the residue actually on the wall, I was hitting about 2%. The large gap created by the bow in the wall was just too much. If I had used smaller tiles, like 4-6″ tiles, they would have likely followed the contour of the wall. But these large format tiles are tricky.
With the leftovers, I put in a backsplash in the mud room.
I even had time for a lot of cleanup. I used a small circular saw (4″) with a tile blade to clean up grout lines where floor tiles are too close together. I made sure the depth gauge was set to make sure I didn’t penetrate the waterproof barrier under the tile.
Next weekend, grout.
