Basement flood repairs underway

We put up plastic sheets to keep the dust off the Aquia Line. 
Tile surface in the crew lounge. Looks like 
a big mess right now.
Recovery work continues on the basement. The contractors have about half the tile installed. The workers have been able to install the tile under the exiting benchwork. They are either jacking up the legs or trimming them with a undercut saw and then sliding the tiles in place. They are working very hard, and are doing  good job of protecting the layout.

We covered most of the Aquia Line with cotton or plastic sheets to keep the dust off the layout.

The tile is darker than the laminate we had previously. The walls will get a light gray color with white trim.  A good portion of the walls in the crew lounge will eventually be painted sky blue for the back drop.
