Day 158 | Back Splash

Day 158

After work today, Timmy and Kevin began installing the white subway tile back splash. They worked so fast! They finished the entire kitchen and even started the grout. Something we learned about grout today… do not let grout sit on your tile longer than 30 minutes without washing it off. Do not. We thought we could cover all of the tile with grout and then go back over later with a wet sponge and smooth it all out. Well you can’t. At least not easily. It was a MAJOR pain and it easily tripled the amount of time it took to finish. We had to sit there with razor blades and chip away at the dried grout and the grout lines are not as smooth as I would have liked them to be. Live and learn.
