You know, it's been a while since I really updated you on the house. We are now looking at a February 1st completion (though the contractor says it will be sooner), which will be about 6 months from our starting date. Whenever I pull up to the house and see all the trucks in the yard? I know someone is working.One of the things that we needed was a lot of "fill" for the back part of the house, to divert water. Instead of trudging thru mud to the back door, we have a gravel path.Let's take a peek inside, shall we? (BTW, if you really want every nauseatingly detailed photograph of every light fixture in every room, feel free to visit my flickr site.) Here is an example of the sconces in the upstairs bath and Amber's bathroom:The bonus room has a cool Monte Carlo ceiling fan and lots of track lighting. Roger should definitely be able to see his musical equipment!The can lights are operational in the living room, and more Monte Carlo fans are installed. Each row of can lights is on a separate dimmer switch. And yes, I played around, dimming rows, undimmming, and making all the the appropriate "oooh" and "aaaah" sounds.So, where are the boys today? Ah...working in the garage. The MESSY garage. Scraps of concrete board, tile, trim - so much clutter. The Virgo in me cringed when I saw their working conditions.It must have made them cringe, too, b/c they cleaned it all up that afternoon.
Now, most people that you see crawling around in dumpsters aren't so savory. Me? I like to still consider myself savory. When I realized that ceiling fan boxes would make good packing boxes, I dove. In my dumpster. And found that the boys got a bit too enthusiastic in their cleaning. I managed to save my shower stuff.I think my shower might look a little funny without it. I am LOVING the tile, just so you know.The tile man did a great job around the whirlpool tub - I really liked his design. He will be repeating that around the backsplash in the kitchen, with a few light tiles thrown in as accents.Most of the house photos have been of the BACK of the house, since that has been our only access route. Well, no more! I now have a driveway! From the road we will be using! Yippee!Dirt and rocks have never excited me so much in my life.
