So I have the highest respect for Tile Guy now!:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

I just finished my first tile job for a kitchen floor and counter tops.  This is flat outright manual labor, back breaking, knee bashing, pain staking work.  :bang::bang::bang:Ugh!  :yuck::yuck::yuck::yuck:Oh well, the wife likes it and that’s what important.  Of course I am doing all this work so we can put the house on the market, but she’s happy anyway.  :Doh:Todd, my hat is off to you man.  I could never do this for a living.

Your supposed to work up to things Slowly Ken, not tackle a big ol kitchen first time LOL.

You sound exactly like most folks that take on a tile job........Many start out saying I saw it on TV, doesnt look to tough.............They woulda saved some money too had it not been for the chiropracter and physical Therapy trips afterwards:)

All I can say is knowing your work, I'm sure it looks great................that and theres a reason why we get paid what we do..............AND IT AINT ENOUGH!!!! ROFL

That would be HD for everything.  Menards? must be east of the Mississippi.  Haven't seen them here in CO but I remember them well in Chicagoland.

I must have gone to about a half a dozen places but ended back up at HD.  After all, we are putting the house on the market so I could not justify huge bucks for tile.  I will taqke a few pics this weekend and post them.

It is a midwestern thing I guess. Good luck with the sale.
