I'm a slave to Mother Nature right now.

Today the painting crew arrived (me) and it decided to be super windy making everything 200% harder. Your tarps won't stay down, and putting them around windows is a new challenge I could have used without. I have to get paint down on that wall they stripped the stucco on. And man does new stucco eat paint.

On Saturday Mr S, and I met with a tile guy and hired him. Even tile guys are booked a week or two out. I feel kinda sheepish admitting I am putting tile back on those pony walls because it sounds like I'm going to tard it out.  I don't ~think~ I am... but you can never tell if what you see in your head is going to look like in real life. And I'm going to post pictures eventually so I think you guys will figure out that I put tile back up there.

    Decent tile might weigh less than the amount of wood paneling you might need for the deck, and it might last longer ...

    But tile doesn't really provide a good waterproofing layer.

    Hopefully your paint is going to provide some protection.

  2. The tile is going to weigh 700 pounds. Which means I need to help move 700 pounds. The deck basically is an outdoor shower at this point. The whole underlayment is the same as a shower.
