I have to be honest, I’m starting to get to the point where I’m throwing my hands up on any kind of scheduling on this addition. I’m sure many are asking why I was trying to schedule in the first place. We’re not on any tight deadline really. Part of me just needs! to! know! what! is happening! Well, part of it is trying to understand what is happening so I know when to start picking the next thing out. But I admit I’ve taken it a bit far and poor Scott has had to answer 80 billion questions about what comes next. And if you know him, 20 questions isn’t his favorite game. Poor guy.
After the storms this week I think it was a final straw on trying to figure anything out. I had assumed we’d be doing drywall this week but I guess I assumed the power company would have been out here on Monday when Scott moved the electrical box but Scott didn’t call them until today and now they are so swamped because of the storm they don’t think they can get out here until next week. Which means no drywall like we thought this week.
In super good news, the mud for the stone outside is nearly dry and they came today to put the board down for the bathroom tile floor and shower and mud the floor for the shower pan or something along those lines. It’s starting to look like a real shower! The tile will be here Friday but will have to wait until the drywall is done sometime next week (or whenever!). And if you don’t recall, it will be chocolate tile floor to ceiling and on the knee wall on the outside and then glass from the wall up. The jury is still out on whether we are going to need a glass door or not. We prefer not but I hate drafty showers too so we’ll see.
Scott also finished off hand-rails on the back steps yesterday.
And I’m just going to throw this picture up because I thought it looked funny that we have a window between our bedrooms. Won’t be there long!
And finally for anyone wondering #1 won the lighting choice yesterday by a landslide.
#7 came in second
and #2, 3 and 10 tied for third.
For me right now I’m thinking maybe to put #1 or 7 in our bathroom and #3 in the bedroom. Thank you so much for voting!
And finally, let me just say I’ve decided I do not like granite for my bathroom. Everyone keeps saying we need granite because we’re going kinda upscale on everything but it’s just so BUSY and I’m just so not a BUSY patterned person. I went today to Tile Collection’s Granite shop to look at some remnants and there was one piece that if we do go granite, it would work but it’s just so…veiny. I must have some really bad memory stuck in my brain folds somewhere of an old person and granite. It just feels old and out of date. Although when I go in restaurants or friends’ houses I think it’s quite beautiful. I know that makes no sense but all I can say is it just did NOT excite me picturing that piece in my bathroom every day! So I’m planning on stepping back and seeing what other hard surfaces we can get. Wish me luck.
OK, whew, thank you for letting me vent and update a little about the addition.
So I’m stepping back and looking…we are only 26 days into this project including weekends. Pretty amazing.
