    Haven't update in a while, but I really I haven't had much time to work on it. Not to mention putting this stone up is going to take a lot longer than I expected. Pretty sure I have most of this weekend to work on it. We'll see.

    Oh and I got all the electrical and gas ran to it. Can't remember if I mentioned that alreay

    I ran the gas line a few years ago for a gas jacuzzi and we used CSST. I have a gas fire place that is right at the backyard wall so we put a T on the line in the wall, came out to a pipe and ran it under the cement. That was a PAIN in the ass to do and it took a while.

    I got a lot more of the stone up this evening. I got the whole front done, I'll post pics tomorrow when I can get some in the light

    Ok I gotta say, laying this stone is such a pain in the ass. I have to pretty much cut every other one. Hopefully the back walls will be a breeze since there wont be much cutting

    woohoo, the front is finally done. The backwall I expect to go quicker since it is pretty much straight across and not much cutting. Fingers crossed

    I figured that's what you were getting ready for. It was looking like one of those old style rollbars from the 80s :D, 3 inch chrome tubes

    I haven't updated in a while, but I have been slowly making progress. I had another wedding this weekend so I didn't get much done. The stone veneer is sooo close to being done and takes forever. It is looking really good though

    My lovely gf helping me out. She has actually done quite a bit of the stone herself.

    I'm thinking just one of those table umbrellas. I really like the ones that can tilt to the side rather than just straight up and down so I may spend a bit more depending on the price. There will be a hole on top of the island where it will go through.

    So the stone is all finished and it is time to tile. I'm going to buy all my bull nose trim pieces today. I've never tiled before and I'm having difficulty finding the answer to this.

    Would I start with all my edge pieces first and then tile the inside or work my way toward the edge? Seems like tiling the edge first is the way to go

    Yes, I do the edges first since it has to go tight up against the substrate. You can then lay out your inside tiles to see what is the best layout - either center your joint or center a tile and work out from there to the edges. Lay both ways out and see which layout works best. You don't want to end up with real narrow slivers.
    Good luck. It looks great so far!
