Window casing in place.
I put all the pieces up around the window today. I mixed too much mastic. I had been doing so good and just mixing a little bit more than I needed. I think the real key was I was mixing the same amount every time and this time the job was too small. I need to tear into the countertop now. Unfortunately, I need to break out the sawzall and multitool and I don't want the walls to vibrate until those tiles are dry! Tomorrow will be soon enough to tear out the sink, cut the countertop and install all the hardiboard. If I can get all that done tomorrow then I can even start laying out the granite tile. Unfortunately, my paying jobs are interfering with the remodel. But, I am going to throw down this prediction, I will be done with the tiling by next week. I had given a work estimate of three weeks but the downdraft fan is going to be hard. Lots of measuring and calculating. I have the rough design in my head. I pickup the exhaust fan on Wednesday. Once I can open the box and lay my hands on the fan it will be easier to picture what needs to be done.
