This Tuesday Tidbits post is short and sweet for the simple fact that we are insanely busy! We have been working like crazy on the house. Forgive any typos…I’m writing this with eyes barely open. While we are definitely closer to the end, we aren’t as close as most people believe. The finishes take forever!
This past weekend, we finished the tile work for all the bathrooms. Floors, showers, shower floors…all of it! The master shower was the very last thing and it felt so good wipe off that last little grout. The marble toppers will be going on sometime very soon!
We had hoped the fireplaces would be finished by now, and while they are close, it will still take more time. The big fireplace needs more sanding, filling and another coat (or 3) of paint. The small fireplace still needs a mantel, the hearth topper and also more sanding, filling and paint. But from a distance the large fireplace looks finished!
We saved all the main level doors for the house. They are huge, solid and awesome! We had solid doors made (that look like the main floors doors) for the second floor. All of those doors are installed and even some casing has been added. If you have ever hung doors, you know this is one of the worst jobs ever!
And when we have some time left in an evening, but not enough to start another big project we have started installing lights. The breezeway has a couple of these lights and it is amazing how a light fixture helps to finish things off!
As always, thank you for following along! Have a wonderful week and stay cool!
