Days Eighty One To Eighty Five, 15 - 19 January, 2016Finally getting some color into the inside of the house. This is a blue-colored cement wash. I think it's the second coat here.

I went to Villa's Imports, Lano's Hardware - downtown and in Ranchito, Cinty's - Junior's and the younger brother's, Chan's Hardware out on San Andres Road, and to Creative Tile. No one had five-by-seven inch tile. Several had 8" x 12", but that wasn't what I needed... Or, was it?
After I got back home, I was side-tracked doing something else, when it hit me, that maybe I should measure the subway tiles already up in the original pool house shower.
Hmmmph. Whaddya know? It's eight by twelve. Stupid stuff anyway, I thought to myself.
So, it was back to Creative Tile to get eight-by-twelve inch, white, subway tile. Enough to cover 14 square meters, about ten boxes.
So, the total comes up to be $180 BZD or so. I dig into my wallet. Ooops. Five bucks short. No problem. I'll just use plastic. Except there is a problem. Using plastic of any flavor, the cost goes up to $200. Seems there's a twenty percent discount to use cash.
I told the girl, "Twenty percent is twenty percent. I'll be back." I jumped back in the Sport Trac and headed home for some more cash.
Here's the result after completing the transaction at Creative. Ten boxes of eight-by-twelve, white, subway tile. The grout in the picture wasn't part of this deal. It's just there for effect.

Oh. OK. Well, in that case, you're doing a damned fine job. Keep up the good work.
