The old insulation in the bathroom has been removed and the new insulation installed.
A tile installer came to give an estimate on installing the floor and shower tile. Of course, this can't occur until the sheetrock/wonderboard is installed.
We like travertine (limestone) tile, but I was concerned about using it, since the hall bath gets a lot of wear and Cooper's water bowl is in there.
The sales person had two suggestions - choose a stone with a grain/pattern and a low sheen that will not show scratches as easily and seal the stone several times to protect it.
We really like the look of natural stone and had installed marble in Oxford, so we will try the travertine.
