It started with the termite inspector finding termites in our front screen door. He advised us to get rid of the door which we quickly did and decided to get a steel door so the termites would think twice before trying to take another bite out of the same place. However, when Art installed the door we found that the stoop did not go out far enough so there was a gaping hole at the bottom. Hmmmm... another invitation for termites to enter the house?
Off to Home Depot to buy some concrete blocks to extend the stoop and align it to the bottom of the door. That's when I got a great idea. How about we put tile down to make the entrance prettier?
OK, I admit Art wasn't too keen to start another project but he's so creative and brilliant and amazing with these home projects that I knew he would come around to seeing the rightness of this idea.
We had to go hunting for the right tile which we found at Lowes this time. There was a ton of measuring, choosing the grout and buying more thin set to glue down the tile.
Ummm... OK maybe it wasn't a quick and easy project like I thought it would be. I would have helped more if my foot wasn't in a cast at the time.
And now there's only the grouting left to do and I will help...
