Note that unlike most shops, you have to treat the Arimasticopoulous as a contractor. list goods from Mosaicist to see what he has in stock, then hire Mosaicist and he will follow you to your house if it is within his area (he will not enter carriages nor will he travel on foot much past Il Drim). In your house you can ask him to fit the <surface> with <decor>. When finished you can dismiss him.
