The author studies tilings of a Euclidean space, generated by means of Pisot numbers. It is proved that if a Pisot number is a unit, and satisfies a finite expansibility property, then the origin is an inner point of the corresponding central tile. Under an additional condition, the tiles are shown to be arcwise connected.
