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!

    Happy for you to be almost finished, and just enjoy your home, but very sad for those of us who anxiously await Tuesday Tidbits. Love everything you’ve done. I am exhausted by proxy.

    Can’t imagine what I will look forward to on Tuesdays when everything is completed and there won’t be any more Tuesday Tidbits! But I am happy that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. You can see the light right.

    All is taking great shape. You have been working hard and deserve some time to enjoy your home a bit. Of all the beautiful things happening in your home, do you know what I noticed most?. Yes, it was your good luck charm hanging over your entrance door……
