Fernando beat me to the post, but progress continues on the kitchen. We now have walls, shown here as blueboard backing:

Today starts the tile floor – grey 6” x 18” tile with a slate-like look, laid the long way (parallel to the floorboards shown), staggered, so that the grouted joints between the tiles don’t line up on the horizontal. Sort of like this:
The first step will be another layer on top of these old sub-floor boards, on which the tiles will be set. The whole install will take several days, so there won’t be all that much other progress to report until it is completed, and we have a floor again.
