NOVA's bath builders, working within an extremely tight schedule, hit bumps in the road. Since there is not enough time to dry floor tiles out, they have cracked in the firing, and sometimes even exploded. While it's not the Roman way, Teoman Yalcinkaya, who leads the construction, has the tiles held together in steel frames. Explains Teoman: "We have a schedule."
