I fixed most of the bad boards in the subfloor of the kitchen. And cut out some cement board to use as a sublayer. Here is how the house is looking.
I also started sanding the stairs, in preparation for finishing. But then found out that I had completely clogged the filter on my wet/dry vac. So I had to stop until I got some new filters. Here is where I stopped.
Sanding this all down is going to take quite a lot of time. I’m also going to have to do a bit by hand because my sander won’t get into all the corners.
That was all done on Saturday. On Sunday, I went out and bought my tile. Thankfully, John and Paul showed up to help me move it from the van to the house. It’s insanely heavy, but I think it’s going to look really good. I started to do the tile layout, so I could make sure the seam falls on the break in the floor. It works great in the direction to the back of the house. But to the front of the house, I’m going to have to play around a bit to make sure I don’t have large tiles in a place where they’ll be likely to break.
