I found the stuff that I need at a specialty tile shop. Wouldn't you know it... Image

It's an interesting material to work with. You have to mix two different resins together then add the colored powder substance. It is super thick and goopy and it sticks to itself like tar, it doesn't slosh around like cement mortar. I got a gallon of it down today.. hopefully the other gallon i have is enough to cover the rest (it should be close). I'm finally feeling confident that the project will work out successfully. Tomorrow's forecast is ok and I've been able to keep the rain out so there shouldn't be any more damage, I don't think.

Done, finally. (I had to pick up a third bucket)

Google says that the cold weather creates a "significant increase" in cure time so this thing won't get a test run for a while, I don't think. Curious to see how it plays out.

About time to go legit and be a real business.

I bet you the Amish don't have to get insurance when they do construction. I probably have to lie about wearing shoes, or at least not bring it up.

Such a fucking scam.

He is still with the girl and they are raising the kid, her dad probably doesnt like him, and we have given him the nickname "Mr. Tile your Floor" lol
