Hi Sunni,

My main business is tile remodeling, and we encounter your situation frequently. When you tile the floor, leave out a few tiles (sort of like stepping stones) through the area you need to travel through. The next day you can set those pieces and mark them with masking tape or party balloons or whatever. Let them set overnight, and then do your grouting.

As I indicated, we work in people's homes every day, and we have yet to move anyone into Motel 6.
