Where did you get the tile? I was wondering how you cut it, I assume you
had a wet saw.

So, you are actually attaching the tiles to the paper of the drywall?

at Floor Masters North of Wildwood on 301. The sales man/maybe owner was Ed Bertoloti. He was very helful and was the guy that loaned me the wet saw and gave me the sealer. Another thing he did was he gave me a 5 gallon bucket of adhesive. I used a small amount not even 25%. I brought the unused adhesive back and he only charged me for what I used. He also was able to answer all the questions I had. We did this about 1-1/2 years ago so things may be different now but next month I am gong to start the Lanai floor and will see how they are now.

The tile was Andes 4x4 Tumbled Stone Vanila color. The Pencil trim was the same color. The listello was cut from some wider stuff that hey had left over. The original listello had another dark brown bar which would have been too wide for the back splash. They have lots of left over stuff in the back that can be had for almost nothing. If you dig through the inventory Ed will often give it to you or almost give it away.

Total cost for material $269.64 including tax.

Labor free. I have lots more time than money plus I just like doing work like this.

My next project I am going to tile the Lanai floor. I think I can do it for less than $250 and it is about 200 square feet.
yep

the drywall was plastered then painted by the TV builder. I just tiled right over it. The finish was slightly textured so a good heavy coat of adhesive for leveling is a good idea.

is very easy to use. It had a sliding bed that had stops to set the tile in. The cuts were actually sharper than cutting wood. My first experience with this type saw but it couldn't have been easier. It was a very good commercial grade saw.
