Sandra has had the fun, not, of grouting the tile we set in the main kitchen.  Unlike most standard tiles, this has a very deep inset profile around the edge of each one.  Like a good 1/4” deep by 1/2” wide.  She tried using a grout bag, like a pastry bag only larger, but it didn’t really work.  So she is using her fingers to work the grout in without filling the entire depression.  A slow process, but she has now finished two sections, one more to go.  


I’ve been continuing to work on door trim.  I think it’s nearly finished, but I’m short a couple boards.  Do I, order a bit more aspen? Or try using spruce.  I’ll ponder it a bit. But the crown moulding on top is just about finished.  It’s gone reasonably well, if only, I could measure correctly.  

I went and picked up an order of rough cut lumber at the mill this morning.  Took my 10’ trailer.  I didn’t realize just how heavy the order would be.  From my estimates when I unloaded each piece, I probably had close to 3000# on a trailer designed for 1500#.  Some pieces were so long they nearly dragged the ground.  But we made it home in good order.  I unloaded and spread it out to dry, and then the skies opened up. Oh well. This load is going to be planed but in keeping with a more handhewned style.  Most of it is going towards four bunkbeds, some for a couple large coffee tables, and some for exposed shelving in both kitchens.  Plenty of work to do once it dries.  I figure about a month and we can begin working it.

Waiting on the stone for the lower fireplace.  It’s in Denver now, distributor in Pueblo, CO can’t spare a truck to pick it up just yet as one of theirs is broken.  They asked if I could go and get it in Denver. An extra 3-4 hours that would be added to a 7 hour trip already. No thanks! Hopefully. They can get it within a week.

The car lift got a good workout this past weekend.  Daughter in Denver drove down for me to install skid plates and rock sliders (heavy duty guards that take them place of running boards) on her 4-Runner.  Seems she is getting into trail riding since she moved west!

Should be able to tile the lower kitchen backsplash over the weekend.  Using subway tile on it so grouting should be much easier when Sandra works on it. All in all, things keep progressing!

Order more aspen.  If you go around and count, I bet there is more upper door trim still missing than you think (I think my bathroom, closet, bedroom, etc all were missing pieces).
