Wow, what a busy 2 1/2 months! We got a lot accomplished and there's been a lot of late nights working. I owe my wife a lot of credit, as she's quite the trouper, working right there beside me on just about everything I do, not to mention all the things she does on her own. I couldn't do it without her.
The tile floors have been finished. The granite countertops have been installed; the pendant light fixtures in the kitchen have been installed. A little more painting has been done, more trim work finished, new doors and a partial wall at the water heater closet, water softener system installed, dishwasher drawer installed, some custom cabinetry done, and the decks have been cleaned and sealed. The hardwood flooring has been decided on, purchased and brought up and stacked inside to acclimate before installation and the thermostat for the propane fake log stove has been installed. A lot of the trim for the doors and windows have had the nail holes filled, sanded, caulked, and are ready for painting. The range hood venting has been completed and the entertainment center has been designed. All the plumbing fixtures are functional and what a nice thing that is! Lots of clean-up has happened along the way too.
We're getting really close to our final, but there's still lots to do. Like they say, the last 10% takes 90% of the time!

All your choices are pretty much what we would have done or our 2nd choices. Do you mind me asking what sort of tiling you used for the floor and walls? You have used exactly the same idea as we are going too of using the same tile throughout. We just love the effect.

|The tile in the bathroom on the floor and walls is a Travertine Marble, 16" sq. X 3/8" approx. I used a 1/16" grout joint, to keep it as tight as possible.|
