This month, we received two intriguing and provocative letters from readers. The first one in from tile contractor, and inventor of the Back Butter Buddy and Edge Strip Kits, Phil Green. He writes:
“The times sure have changed. At the age of 24, I was starting the adventure of owning and running my own tile installation business. I remember bringing a few print magazines for my homeowners to flip through while I took measurements and made sketches. If they saw something they liked, it gave us a great starting point from which to create a design just for them. There was no internet or HGTV shows as resources then.
