« Part 4: More preps out of the way Part 5 of Kitchen remodel series Part 6: New Kitchen Floor Installed »

Received the new wet tile saw from Amazon, several days sooner than expected. The new saw works great and is extremely easy to setup and use, just like it was advertised. I continued installing the small tiles above the back splash as far as I could go. The remaining portion of the wall is not plumb and needs to be refloated. I met with the contractor this morning and she won’t be back until around Nov to do the walls and ceiling. Kinda long from now but she is a dear friend who has to make a living, so I will wait until she has some slow time in Nov. She has given me instructions on what preps I need to do to get ready for her work, so it will leave me plenty of work and time to get it all done. I have to prep one wall cavity that used to hold some shelving that we used as a pantry. I got permission from the boss to remove it so the wall and trim will look much cleaner, in the long run it makes my life much easier. I have to do some wood work to get things ready for the dry wall which will cover the old opening. Plus I need to continue removing more of the old wall covering and then primer the whole room before the refloating\texturizing can begin.
The floor tiling will start next Monday, unfortunately I will be out of town on business for the next 3 weeks, only home on the weekends. So we have a lot of work to do to get ready, moving all the items (refer, stove, table, chairs and butcher block table) out of the ktichen into some other room of our already cramped living spaces. My youngest will be staying with friends for the week to help keep the traffic out of the kitchen.
Here are a couple of pics of the tiles above the back splash. My next post will hopefully be of the finished floor tiles in two weeks. Take care.

The back splash tile goes very nice with the granite counter, nice work, Pat.

Keep safe on your business trips!
