I like to refer to this past week as “Hell Week”. Work was crazy, my computer crashed and I had to work a million hours. It doesn’t happen too often, so I don’t mind except for the fact that we have so much stuff to get done with the house. I was exhausted all week long and missed having normal nights. After Sunday day, things should be back to normal and I can concentrate on my house again!
We did have to decide on a floor color this week. They mixed a 50% mixture of jacobean and ebony and then we had them apply only the ebony floor color. We were told it is more unique having just ebony, because ebony pulls a lot of green and grays out of the floor. We don’t think we will have that big of an issue, because our floors are red oak, so it helps keep the green and gray to a minimum.
On a side note, I may have been working hard at work, but below are shots of how hard they worked on the house all week. All the little things are being pulled together. I plan to run by the house tonight to take pictures of all the hard work they are doing throughout this weekend.
Front of the House
Back of the House
The garbage disposals are in and they started the backsplash. They also installed our faucets and sink. We used our old faucet, because we really liked it and the sink is identical to our old one. Maren came in and instantly recognized the sink and asked if that was our old one too, but then I reminded her how we put our old sink at the lake house.
I love how the backsplash looks with our colors. I can’t wait to see what it looks like once they grout. They also got our door hardware on. They only had a few colors to pick from with this type of Marvin door. I don’t think I am that fond of it, but it will have to do. They also di the under mount lighting in the kitchen and dining room.
They put the hooks up on the lockers. Don’t be fooled by the letter we picked for the baby’s locker. I just had them put one of our many letters up there until we figure out a name. Jay asked if I picked that one on purpose, because it was one I must really like on our short list the most. I told him I just grabbed one of the boxes.
Our master bathroom tiling is finally coming to an end. They did offset our facets, so they had to break into the tile and move them over a bit. With all the work they put into that tile, I am sure it hurt to take them off.
We also got our toilets and our bathtub faucets installed.
Basement – Tank less Water Heater
This was a long post with a lot of small things happening. We have about a week left and hopefully it’s time to move in!
