Stanley arrived much earlier today and when the doorbell rang I was still in the shower (not nearly as private now that there is a giant hole in the wall). He decided to go ahead and remove the rest of the tile on the wall between the two bathrooms. This meant removing the sink and toilet, though he would later put the toilet back. Mom checked up on progress later in the day. Apparently they hadn’t counted on me asking for a bullnose border and thought I would use flat tile (which “most people” do now). I still want that classic look though. Anyway, that caused some trouble because Miguel hadn’t counted on that and had to add an extra quarter inch of backing board to get the extra thickness needed for the bullnose. He explained this to me when I got home and he was about to leave. Still, I was impressed with the progress. They got the shower pan and mortar all in, along with some of the shower wall tile and some of the floor tile.
Miguel says the tiling should be finished tomorrow. I should have a functioning master bathroom by the end of the week.
