In our continuing series on the re-tiling of our front foyer and adjacent laundry room, we saw the initial effort to remove the 23 year old tile in the front hall way.
Today, we finish that effort and see the results.
Once all the tiles were removed, the contractors then proceeded to use a shop-vac to remove all the loose cement.
As they did this, they also used the large metal scraper you see in the picture below to scrap of any excess thin-set left over from the initial tile removal.
Of course, they also used the shop-vac to pick up all the loose debris which fell on the carpet on the living room adjacent to the front hallway.
So, how long did it take them to remove all of the original tile from the front foyer? All together, no more than 2 hours, if that long.
What does the finished front foyer flooring look like now that it is down to the base plywood flooring?
Well, here are some pictures for you. The one above was taken from the adjacent living room. Immediately below is the picture of the floor by the curving part of the Bannister for the stairs leading to the finished basement.
Next, below, is a picture of the coat closet in the front hall. Notice they forgot their shovel!
The picture below is of the front hall’s flooring with the tile removed leading into the kitchen with its Jatoba Espresso hardwood floor.
This last picture is of the floor where the front hall meets the laundry room.
So now we wait until the next crew from the contractor arrives the next day.
