Tile Progress and Dramas

For a little while today we thought we might need to pick a new shower tile for the bathroom.  The marble tiles we had chosen were delivered today and 80% of them were chipped.  Our builder immediately packed them up and took them back to Metric Tiles.  Apparently the tiles we chose were seconds, although this was never made known to us.  The tiles were in the clearance section marked at 50% off, but every tile we saw was whole and in good condition, and there were no signs saying they were seconds!  Thankfully our builder put in the hard yards and argued the case on our behalf and Metric Tiles agreed to replace them with a different marble tile at no extra cost. 🙂

The black velvet limestone has been grouted – with the dark grout – and is looking great.  It should look even better once it has been sealed.

The ensuite tiles have been placed in position ready for grouting.
