We continue with a report on the tile work in the small studio apartment, EC Unit 10-1.
Alumnus Dan Kelliher helped with tiling apartments in the East Crescent.
First, whole tiles are laid out, so that the spaces that will require cut tiles can be carefully adjusted.
The second stage consists of setting the full tiles. Before a tile is set in, a thin layer of thin-set is applied, acting as the adhesive between the tile and the concrete floor.
In the left side image, mortar has been applied in the grooves between tiles.
In the photo on the right-side, the corner pieces have been cut and laid out.
We will continue with a report on the tiling of the shower in this apartment on 2/2/09.
