I have always loved black and white, and have always wanted a classic black and white tile floor. When I told Dan this is what I wanted for my loft bathroom, which is referred to as "my" bathroom, he wasn't exactly game, but I assured him it would be awesome, and NO, these are not individual tiles that needed to be laid. they came on a mesh. 8 x 8 tile, but yes, they all had to be grouted in.
Learning from the master
Dan's grandpa, Earl Grant, had been a carpenter for many years. I am told he was a perfectionist. Some how, Dan inherited both his grandfathers desire to work with wood, and his attention to detail. Over the years he has learned much about stain and finish. So while getting a little help from daughter Jennifer and son in law Grant, my husband gave them a lesson on staining windows. So all in one day we got all the windows in the upstairs stained all at one time.
