Well this has definitely been the week for ups and downs. The wood flooring was wrapped up in two days. Tim, Johnny and Casey did an incredible job getting the job done quickly and the floors look great. That was the up. The down came Wednesday when the plumber showed up to do final. Due to a mix-up, he thought the stuff wasn't there and left. Then a no show on Thursday and finally getting started today. Needless to say this delays us with grouting the tile floors.
Final electrical is underway and will be done on Saturday. During this time Tim and Johnny focused on some of the smaller stuff. They got the backsplash done and got the hutch together. Johnny also finished the shower. A whole bunch of 4x4 travertine tiles. Things are starting to shape up with a lot of little stuff still left. But it is closer.
Another thing that had been on the list to do was the stone veneer for the fireplace. The stone took a while to come in, and on Thursday, Travis and a helper came by and put it up.With the multicolor veneer and the slate floors, I think it looks really good.
Will update again when plumbing and electrical are completed.

Looking at all of your pics and everthing looks great! We are building in Midlothian Texas. Got your door man and was in contact with him regarding cost, etc.,. and have decided to work with him but have been unable to connect or confirm a contract. Was the same with you? Have sent 2 or 3 emails but no response. Also, try to call and only get a fax signal.
Other questions, what kind of deal did you get on your cabinets and flooring (travertine and wood)?

Sorry about the long delay in response. Finishing up the project has been very time consuming and honestly lost track that I hadn't responded. Steven lists doors on EBAy and that's actually how we started the process. I bought the door on auction and he contacted me pretty quickly. I know for ours, eventhough it was an auction, he still custom built the door.
Hope this helps.
