More Laminate flooring, Tiles for the Bathroom + some electricity works

Updated: 11 August, 2022 seen 50

After the tile removal in the kitchen and hallway area, it was already agreed - I will re-install laminate there. Additionally, after hydro isolation works in the bathroom I decided I will tile again.

I was very scared before the new tile job and measured everything 10 times before applying tile glue. Also, I decided to go for 6mm spacers (instead of 3mm)

An electrician friend of mine helped to fix the cables (at least some of them)
