Retro-Mod Kitchen Renovation – Week 3
Just a quick post this week. We got the electrical work all set and ready to go! We also got the floor ready for finish!
We got the subfloor ready for tile – this here is 1/2 cement board with a blob of leveling compound to address a low spot in the floor.

Next comes the tile! These are tiles by Crossville in a color called ‘I See The Moon’. They measure 12″x18″ and they will eventually have 1/8″ grout lines.
