You were right

All of you who told me that things would slow down once the inside work began were absolutely right!  I was waiting for things to be completed before showing you pictures, but it seems that one thing being finished depends on another thing being done. 

Anyway, here are a lot of things that have been done but maybe not completed.

After the taping and texturing were finished, Steve, the trim guy started working his magic.

Then the painters came in and painted all the walls and stained the doors.  Front door.

My nest.  A pale shade of yellow.

Then, Norm the granite guy, did his thing.

Here’s the kitchen

And the buffet in the dining room.

This is the powder bath that will have the copper vessel sink and really fun faucet.  Can’t wait for it to get installed.

Master bathroom…

and… today when I went over, the tile guy was working in the master bath.

Jack n Jill bathroom…

The fireplace stone guys were there last week but they still have the hearth to put down.   We really love how it turned out.

The color of the first picture is more accurate (if I remember right…LOL)

The outside finally got painted but they still have to finish some of the trim.

And I was so surprised to see that the sod was laid today!

The wood for the floors was delivered today and will start to be installed tomorrow.  

We still don’t have an exact move in date but have been told that as soon as all the “hard surfaces” are installed, we’ll know more.  

We’re getting so excited and anxious to move and get settled in!

So, lots has been done, but you can see that there’s still a lot more left to do.  It’s getting closer tho!

Hugs, Anne
