RE: Please help with my backsplash + where to buy online? (Follow-Up #4)

I bought my tile online from tileshop.com They offer free shipping on orders over $100. The tile was packaged really well and it arrived within a week.

They have a great selection of all kinds of tile. You can also order a sample to make sure you like it before you place your order. My samples came with a 10% card for when I placed my order. A similar tile from local places was easily twice the cost!

Here is a link that might be useful: Tile Shop

RE: how to protect new wood floors on move-in day? (Follow-Up #4)

Forget the rosin paper. If it gets wet, it falls apart and the most commonly available rosin paper (peachy-red color) will bleed. It also slides too easily and tears, becoming a real safety hazard.
Look to getting either Ram Board (Google for their website) or Fiberrock heavy paper from USG Corp. Both come in rolls and can be cut and taped to fit any room or hall. They don't stain and they are heavy enough to protect against rocks in shoes or dropped objects. The Ram Board is heavier and will provide better protection.
Also, look into making sure that your appliance delivery folk will bring an air sled, instead of an appliance dolly. Air sleds slide under the appliance and, with a small blower motor, lift the appliance on a cushion of air. I've moved washing machines, clothes dryers and 60" duel-fuel Wolf ranges by myself using an air sled and never left a mark.
Best of luck,
Shaughnn

be careful with cardboard with Central Air. I have seen Central with Cardboard attracting moisture and affect the wood floor under it. Cardboard would be my choice or Rosin Paper, but it would be on and off that day.
