The customer had purchased a custom pre-fabricated pool house with a cedar interior and an unfinished floor.  They called us in to add the finishing touch to their pool house.

The ONLY way to complete a tile job in a timely manner is to have all the tile onsite before the job is started.  Most of our vendors will deliver your tile to your home and stack it in your garage.

Even though this was a small tile installation, the pre-installed cedar baseboard and door casings had to be removed in order to lay the cement backer board and tile correctly.  In this photo you can see the cement backer board under the tile.  The cement board makes the floor rigid so that the tile doesn’t crack.  The small white crosses are spacers for the tile and are removed before the grout is applied.

With tile, you only get to choose where the first tile gets laid down.  After the first tile is set, all the other tiles will automatically fall in to place.  For this tile installation, the home owner choose to have the seam right down the middle to match the doors and he wanted a full tile at the front of the room.  This puts all of the cut tiles on the outside edges of the room where they can be hidden by the baseboard.

After the tile was laid and the glue had dried, we applied the grout and re-installed the baseboard and casings around the door.
