    I do need the practice, this is my first tile experience. Although I did get to work the wet saw on another project, somebody else was setting and grouting.

    I should have started with your guys projects and learned from all my mistakes before starting my own!!

    Canuk doesn't have a shot at getting me up there until his temps don't start with a "-". If you're temps are warmer than here right now (low 50's today) you have a chance!

    Why not, that's how canuk got his start ...

    We're in the upper 60's now-a-days, factoring wind chill probably about 72! (no minus sign around these parts)

    When you get to my age, you don't need cold for body parts to fall off.

    Got the last of the tile installed. Went with the border design at the door trim on the one end. The "decorating committee" has this under review at the moment so it may change before grouting. It could go back to having the diagonals dead end into the door trim.

    Won't get to the grouting until next week so no more pics for a while.

    For what it's worth, I think you made the right choice with dead-ending with trim tile. If you can envision scabs of tile filling that space, I think you'll agree that the trim is indeed the right choice.

    You might take a piece of scrap door trim and overlay it on the field tile to simulate what the look of the scab cuts will look like, to get an idea of which the interior decorator will like better. I personally don't like the look of tile cuts because the edges are not rounded like a normal field tile are, and the cuts tend to be a bit jagged, further diminishing the aesthetics.

    You're doing a great job, btw.

    It does finish the top line from the cabinet nicely.

    With trim tile I vote no, use caulk instead. With scab cuts, yes, and it will also need to be followed with caulk or the crack between the door trim and tile will reappear and show.
