Finishing Friday - Front Entry Way

There is nothing better than to see the transformation of the old tile and the new tile.  It has been at least one year since Jeff bought the tiles for the front entry way.  The last couple of weeks he has been working on it and finally it is all done.  At the beginning it was a little slow but once the layout was in place, Jeff's work became a little easier and faster.  The big difference about having a handy man around the house, you save a lot of money because you don't have to pay for labor.  The other benefit is that you don't have to worry about having strangers in your house for days trying to layout tiles.  It is really interesting watching Jeff do this type of work.  He is very detail oriented and a little bit of a perfectionist.  The result of his work is amazing.  The picture does not do justice but I am sure you get what I am trying to show.  For those of you have stayed at our B&B, you will remember those dated old tile as soon as you enter the house.  Now this is what it looks.
