Stepping up to tile work

So, it was finally time to deal with the bugs/worms in the beautiful madrone step going up to Amelia's room.  It looks great on the outside, but inside the bugs were eating away, and they could be heard in the evenings:

So, with some supervision, I dug out the step and the plaster around it.

we put in a new redwood piece and plastered around it, then Melissa put in some really nice tiles that we picked up in Mexico, surrounded by other white tiles

Door project, in process

So, of course it wasn't a simple thing.  I ended up cutting down and finding lots of rebar.  So, there was a lot of sledge hammer work....
