Which means those tasks I've deferred because winter was so far away are now staring me coldly in the face.

In particular, the kitchen.

Ah, underfloor radiant heating, specifically pex tubing and hot water, is so nice on the feet and gently heats the room above. As part of the kitchen remodel, 3/4" cherry wood floor was added. This effectively cuts the existing thermal transfer by 50%.

Anticipated, as a design element was ceramic tile inlays in front of the front door, double sliding glass doors, and in front of the windows where the dogs can view arriving visitors.

About a week ago, I hooked up the pad in front of the sliding glass doors. It works really well! But what about the others? Uh, that's were motivation fell short. Although laid, the tiles were not yet grouted. So Saturday morning I had a vacuum in one hand, and toothbrush in the other, cleaning the accumulated debris and dust out. Sunday was grout on, grout off. It turned out very well, and now I'll hook up the pex to the boiler tomorrow, once things are good and set.
