That is my basic question. Is hardybacker on 1.5"x5" toungue in groove cardecking enough support for tile floor? It is dense fur and have had assurences from some that it would do fine, but after reading some horror stories here and elsewhere I thought it worth asking.

Also I plan on doing the etrenceway this fall so we can get the pot belly stove back in and then in the spring continue the tile into the kitchen. is this a foolish Idea? anybody forsee problems with the connection between old and new tile work? should I protect the edge beyond throwing a rug over it for the winter?

Ceramic tile can come in DYE LOTS, so if you purchase later, it could have a visible line between the two floor, or even worse yet, they could discontinue the tile. If it is a natural stone like a slate, then it is various enough to where you wouldnt notice a difference. I would purchase all the tile you need for all areas, and store it.
