First things first, we noticed that we have a little visitor...who seems to like my pillow.
little kitty feet!
There is a group of kittens who hang out across the street--and in our house, apparently. We just might pull an Urban Vegan and see if we can catch and spay/neuter them. Her story of Buttons is inspiring! I don't want a house full of kittens, though. Do any of you have experience with this? Suggestions?
So, onto the house. In order to do the finish plumbing, we needed to work on a few key things such as laying the subfloor and tile. And after working on this for a few days--we can tell you that NOT ONE wall in our house is straight or square. Everything is crooked! Here is the puzzle master, Tavo, contemplating kitchen subfloor.
Good job, babe!
ahh, bathroom is ready for some cement backer!

mortar and tile--11 pm on a school night, yet I'm ecstatic! We decided to stick to the classic tile look instead of trendy. It was difficult, though--there are some EXCELLENT tiles on the market.
and we're done for the evening. Grouting fun will occur tonight.
Okay, so we have been tossing around the idea of doing the kitchen in solid black and white linoleum tiles. Kitch or poor taste? Please give opinions, as we will be purchasing tiles and laying them on Saturday. Also, take into account our already black and white bathroom tiles that can either be contained or continued...
This video seems relevant to our black and white tile argument, as beautiful people are dancing on a plain checkered floor.
We have been blasting the Manu Chao recently--so many good songs from this band! Check out 'Clandestino' before they yank it from every youtube site...
