Retro-Mod Kitchen Renovation – Week 3

The Progress

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.

We had to have a conversation about transition from tile to the original oak hardwood in the dining room. There would be only a 1/8 inch difference in height but we decided that taking out this first, now jagged, row of wood and replacing with a new row of wood would allow for it to be shimmed from below to angle up to the height of the tile.

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.

The Design

I have decided that it will be helpful to keep posting the design renderings with each progress post:
