Overdue Progress Report

It's been awhile since I posted progress pictures so come on in and see what all has been done! The stone work on the fireplace is complete except for the bottom of the shelves which will be the same stone as the mantle.The finish carpenter has begun to install the doors, this one is waiting it's turn to be installed. Love these doors!

Tile work in the shower is progressing. All of the other tile is laid but not grouted, including the slate in front of the fireplace and the garage entry hallway.

The wood flooring is installed. We love it! It's oak, with lots of personality. Can you see the worm holes and knot holes? The width of the boards varies and adds to the overall look. In a few weeks the floor installers will meet us out there sand down a spot and try out different stains for us to select from. Then they'll stain it the first time, and let it sit for three days, then right before the house is turned over to us they'll put the final coat and varnish on. The contractor wants to make sure we have shiny new floors when we move in!

"Graduation week" festivities continued today with a trip to KC where Sara and I were honored to accompany Susan as she was measured and placed the order for her wedding dress that she selected last year. It's a lovely Michael Nolte original dress and she looks beautiful wearing it, even with the giant red clips they used to make it her size! Later we met up with the fellas at Famous Dave's after they had been to Cabela's. Good times! This evening we headed out to the land and had a fire with more construction scrap. Evan joined us and the good times continued until dark. And now it's time to check for ticks!
