New view!

Unfortunately, this isn't the view from my kitchen sink, but it is what I will be waking up to every morning for the next week!   Somehow, we pulled off sneaking away for a week, right at one of the busiest times of our remodel.   We are visiting our friend (who has been living in England) at her families beach house in South Florida! 

When we return, the kitchen should be about done, the front door will be there (and hopefully installed!) and maybe some of our tile will be finished (thanks dad).

Our front door - Sneak Peek

Here's a photo of the front door that we're having made for our house.  It's almost done. It's being made by Kara O'Brien's crew at www.laughingsunrenovations.com in Georgia, and will be shipped out next week.  It's made out of Sapele wood, an African hardwood much like mahogany and will have stained glass in the squares along the border.  Below is a picture of how it will look when it's done!

Another week closer to finishing!

Today was a big day, it's not often you get to finalize your dream kitchen!  We signed the papers on our cabinets and they should be installed by Tuesday of next week!  Very exciting!!

It's also been another productive week at the house.

The electrician installed our chandelier in our future dining room:


We also started painting the dining room:

And we have been tiling the new master bathroom and laundry room:
Instead of backer board we used an adhesive mat.   Highly recommended!!

200 Sq Ft laid in less than an hour, and no screws!

While we have been toiling away upstairs, Bob finished the side porch, which looks great:

Still needs a railing, but that should happen soon
