Need a tile setter?
Alex has spent the last couple days and will continue for about another 5 days doing his Aunt Claudia's house in tile! He's doing the entire kitchen floor, down the hallway, into the bathroom, the bathroom shower, down the strairs, through the basement hallway, and into the downstairs bathroom. Boy does he have his work cut out for him! He loves it though. He spends about 12 hours a day working straight through lunch and doesn't stop until the area he is working on is completely finished, even if that means working until 1:00 AM. He is doing this for a couple reasons: 1. He misses setting tile because he's done it for over 4 years! 2. Since both us us haven't worked in 2 1/2 months it's a GREAT way to bring in some cash especially during the Holidays (he has to spend some $$$ for my puppy!) 3. Did I mention $$$? We officially hate being unemployed but with the economy the way it is there's just not much out there. Which brings up my next point: IF ANYONE NEEDS TILE OR HARDWOOD DONE IN YOUR HOUSE, ALEX IS YOUR MAN! He can do showers (awesome by the way), kitchen backsplashes, travertine, porcelain tile, ceramic tile, marble, granite, granite countertops, hardwood floors, ect. Because he's doing it as a "side job" he can get you a better deal than you can from a tile business. You buy all the materials and he just charges for the labor. He is willing to travel pretty much anywhere within reason if it's a big enough job, but big or small he WANTS and is WILLING to do it for you! He's been setting tile and hardwood for 4 years and he is a PERFECTIONIST! He does great work and I'm not just saying so! I can't wait to buy a house and have him do all our own CUSTOM flooring and showers. It will be gorgeous! If YOU don't personally need him but hear of a friend, neighbor, or co-worker who wants to redo their house but doesn't want to pay the price, keep Alex in mind! Thanks a bunch for those of you who have! We really appreciate it! LOVE YOU LOTS!
