No problem even after two earthquakes.
.... the mess is a factor .
You know that Buddha shrine thing every home has ? Well we asked some somchais to build a base for a shrine ......... make a hollow square and then fill it up with broken waste we had from another bit of work . T
hey made the square but then instead of filling it with the mountain of broken cement , tiles et cetera they went around looking and they found our pile of new blocks for a wall and threw all those in and cemented over !!!!
Leaving us no blocks and still with a pile of broken crap . H
ence I was thinking how to avoid adding more to the waste pile .
The helpful answers here are telling me I CAN tile onto tiles but it's not really the 'proper' way to go about things .
More of a somchai approach . God forbid.
Thank you peeples . Wasp
