tiling the tub surround 1

We have finally gotten started on tiling the tub surround. Our biggest challenge with this project is that we don’t have anyone showing us how to do it. Matt has been watching videos online, and we have watched lots of DIY Disaster shows. But it isn’t the same as scooping the thinset into the water and mixing it with the cordless drill. Only to have a new neighbour come by who has lots of experience and says, “That is going to burn out your drill motor. You need to use an old beater electric drill.” And then Matt is kicking himself because we recycled his old electric drill workhorse when we bought the new cordless Makita system.
