Ok guys.. update time again. I would have posted this yesterday but I had a minor set back in life. Some cowardly b@stards broke into my house and wiped me out. Luckly they didnt harm anyone (no one was home) or damage anything.. they just took over 8k worth of my electronics and stuff!

Anyway.. back to better things.. I finally started on my tile last night. Let me just say that it wasnt really difficult, but I will not be quiting my day job to persue a new career in it anytime soon.. lol. Some of my gaps ended up being a little off, but hey.. it was my first rodeo so to speak.

Here is the layout (sorry if some of the pictures are blurry.. just snapped them before going in and passing out.. stress is exhausting.. lol)






Set in adhesive..




Here is a shot of the layout on the backsplash. Ran out of adhesive on the top so didnt get to set it last night. Will do that tonight and hopefully apply the first coat of poly to the whole thing.


Thats it for now.. will update you all again when I can.

First, sorry to hear about somebody breaking into your house. Hopefully they catch them, and as you said luckily no one was hurt. As for the keezer, looks great. Keep up the solid work.

Grout is done! I will go ahead and say it is not perfect by any means, but I am pretty damn pleased with it if I do say so myself. I still have to put poly on the coffin and attach it to the top, after that it is basically just plumbing and attaching the top to the keezer. Oh, and I have to poly the cabinet doors and put the back on. So shy of the cabinet doors the rest of this stuff MIGHT get done tomorrow!!

Here are the pics.. let me know what you think.

No flash


Hopefully I will have more for you guys tomorrow!

lol.. thanks.. Had they taken the keezer my SWMBO would have hunted them down and.. well I am not going to even try and imagine what she would have done... she is ready for this project to be over so we can get back to having some kind of free time. I am just ready to see it done so I can pour a freakin beer!

Looks great! Can't wait to see it finished. I love the tile work. I might just have to tile mine when I get around to building one.

that lid must be a beast to lift... I have 6 12x12 granite tiles on top and then maybe 1 more tiles worth of edging going around mine and its "HEAVY AS F*CK"

Yeah.. I am fairly worried about the hinges after lifting it the front of it a little..lol. I have some more ideas of how to help support it to get kegs in, but I am not sure when those will happen.
