She did say that they plan to sheetrock next week, then probably do the tile the following week. The tile guy will be in to do his final measurements, and I'll have to get the tile ordered through my architect (or maybe through her for the backsplash tile and through Home Depot Expo for the floor tile, where I found it). Must re-check the price at HD, so I'll know if the architect's discount at her tile supply place is a Good Deal.
Having sheetrock and tile done will help a lot with livability in the house. The sheetrock will (I think) be the last major dust-creating activity, so I might be able to remove some of the plastic and cloth that I have shrouding things in the Weird Room. The A/C won't be losing cool air through the holes in the floor and ceiling.Tile on the floor will mean I won't feel I have to put shoes on every time I cross the construction area, like when I"ve just staggered out of bed and want my first cup of coffee.
