Tiling at Night
Its the little things that prove to be the most frustrating stumbling blocks. At the end of the today when the tile guys were set to begin, (they have been tiling at night so we don't lose days) we ran into the problem of a locked door in the basement. For whatever reason, the door to our old storage room, which is currently under construction, was locked. Shouldn't be a problem because we have a key, right? The door knob was broken. And this room was the only access to water for our tile setters. After some scrambling we found the solution (my original idea of breaking down the door did not win the day). Luckily, we are building XOCO next to Frontera and Topolo. The chefs, in particular Richard James, have a lot of tricks of their sleeves. With his help, we were able to run a hose from the kitchen, through the alley to the jobsite. It saved us a day. And at this point, every minute of every day counts.
