That "wood grain" tile looks really, really good, man. I saw the pix on FB today and showed it to a buddy. We both want to do that someday in the new homes.

Those tiles do look good, and nice job on the installation. How are the knees holding up?

You're under the misconception that I am installing them... Uhm... Not....

I am paying professionals to do this... I'm just stuck hanging out in the house while the work is progressing... There is a young lady and her helper doing the install.... She told me she started installing tile in 1998.. And she certainly seems to know what she is doing...

With having had seven surgeries on my left knee, I would be crying on the floor by now...

But flooring is so much fun, how could you pass up the opportunity?

Lets see, swipe a piece of plastic or spend a week crawling around on my knees, buy the proper tools, wear my legs out walking from inside to outside to a cutting table etc.... No thanks... I'll pay to have it done right the first time...

No septic system here, and I am too old to be getting on a 45 degree pitch roof... I have built a game room on the back of a house, turned out amazing, I do all my own wiring, I do tons of wood work, some painting... Etc... But no, no roofing, no flooring, and no septic stuff... I've done all of that but not anymore
