Social Center Part 31 (Flooring & more flooring)

And so the last and final step to completion is finally in motion.

The main part of the building starting the one of the smaller rooms has flooring.

They are ceramic tiles that are tough and the coloring wont fade or easily scratch. Although, they are suspect to cracking. But not much can really be done about that since that is really left up to the people taking care of the building post completion.

The next couple of days will be busy and hard work. And more pictures coming then.

Cause this story is in
its final chapter.


  1. Love these two updates - the final moment is quickly approaching - a lot of hard work paying off. Congratulations again!

  2. I'm glad to see that every thing is coming to closure ...... the tile man got out of the corner he was stuck in, and has now started on the other rooms. When Mazinga gets electricity the you could say the Center will be fully functional. Wonderful progress.
