We continue our report from 2/6/09. Construction staff Kyle Engoian and alumnus Dan Kelliher moved on to tile the floor of the two-bedroom apartment in Unit 7 in the East Crescent complex.
At this time the apartments of Unit 6, 7, 9 and 10 are used for workshop participants and visiting groups.
Kyle applies an adhesive, ‘thinset’, to the back of a tile, before putting the tile in place.
As all of the East Crescent units are wedge shaped, a lot of the tiles had to be custom cut to fit.
Some of the dividing walls between the bedrooms and the living space are curved, another challenge for tile cutting.
The tile work on the floors is complete. A dark grout works very well with the lighter tiles.
Here one of the rooms has been made ready for the incoming workshop.
