The nice part of having a code deployment for my work in the middle of a Saturday night / Sunday morning is that I can catch up on my blogging in between testing. I wanted to show off the hardwoods, since that was what they worked on the most this week. It was also nice since I had such a busy work week, because I was once again made to stay away while the fumes were strong. We did end up finalizing our choice to ebony, which we read a ton that people are starting to move away from using dark floors because of the dirt and dust that will show up on them. I know it’s going to be a challenge with a new baby and a white dog, but I have always wanted dark floors. These pictures are proving that dark floors show a lot, but there is still a lot of dirt and dust in our house! They have to come back, sand and set the floors and this part will be done.
Back of the House – Back porch Tile, Lights and Heater
The bottom back porch was tiled with the same tile we used upstairs. They also added our lights and our heater. We can’t find an outdoor fan we like, so they are going to cap it for now and come back at a later date. We also finally bought our lamp posts for the upper porch and our hanging lamps for our bottom porch. Now we just have to wait until they put the stone in on the porch to get those hung.
Front Room – Hardwoods
Kitchen – Hardwoods
Dining Room – Hardwoods
Mudroom – Tile
We switched this tile out at the last second. I had to return some items at JoAnn’s Fabric and the Tile Shop was next store, so Jay opted to go to the Tile Shop and hang out instead of JoAnn’s. While he was there he noticed this tile and had me come over to look. I instantly fell in love with it and we decided to switch out what we planned to use. Not only did I think it would work better with our colors, but it ended up being a couple dollars a square foot cheaper.
