Natalie's House Update!

Well, tile and hardwood are done and the master bedroom has carpet! Whoo-hoo! The spare bedroom carpet will be done tomorrow. Things are moving fast now! All the appliances are in, glass and mirrors are in. Still to do: get the propane tank set, baseboards, touch up paint, new gutters, and lots o' little things.

House update Sept 4, 2009

Well, I haven't updated in about 2 weeks. Over the last two weeks a lot has happened. We now have steps in the front and back, concrete was poured in the carport. We have all of our light fixtures and ceiling fans. A/C was installed. This weeks, Braid's (Rio Vista) started working on the flooring. There will be tile in the kitchen, laundry, and bathrooms - hardwood in the living room, dining room, down the hall and office - and carpet in the two bedrooms.

Here are two pictures, one is the exterior - looks a lot like the last picture I posted. And one of the kitchen with the tile sans grout. Grout gets smushed into the spaces on Tuesday!

The tile is a black/grey porcelein Dal tile that is supposed to look like slate. I wanted slate but after seeing how "slate-y" it can be (i.e. slice your bare foot in the middle of the night when you're going to the kitchen for a glass of water) and the care it needs (every four years strip and re-seal it) I decided on a no-care porcelein tile instead!
