The good, the bad, and the ugly...

When I load these pictures they change order, so I have saved the best for last!
Almost all lighting has been installed! The plumbing is going in and the tile is creeping up. Here are some pictures of the progress.
Guest bath- the faucet looks great- the blue paint has to go! The guest bath tile I can't stand. I am hoping with the correct paint color, and towels and what not it will look better.
This is my favorite light in the house! In the entrance foyer- it is a monster!

See more later!

Lights, camera, action...

My electrician, Keith took my advice to forgrt the boring plugs and get to the good stuff. He hung a few of my fixtures. They look great! Blair is going all rustic with deer antlers.
I am all glamed up in the dinig room. The breakfast room is so understated and looks great.
More to come...

The Heat is On!

This has been a whirl-wind of a week. It all started Monday when NO- ONE showed up at the house to do anything. I had been asking for our solar tube lights to be installed for about 3 months. The trim guy came Monday morning to install, builder wouldn't decide where to put the lights (which I had marked in the attic during framing), trim guy left with out installing the lights. Then we had about $5,000 worth of lights delivered and set in the driveway because there was no one there to open the house. I was furious! The next morning I had a serious come to Jesus with Builder. Amazingly enough, on Wed. the electrician, cabinet guys, tile guys, trim dude, drop ceiling installer, heating and air, and an inspector all showed up at the house. That is the way I like to see things work.
The solar tubes were installed, and I highly recommend them. In the day time you can go into either of the boys bathrooms and not need to turn on a light!
The heat was turned on and runs at a low temp to help dry the tile.
The tile is moving right along.
There are plug covers on plugs and light switches.
My cabinets have knobs on them!!!
It seems all my fussing may have been worth it- which is a shame because I am a whole lot better being nice than not.

My favorite part

This door is an old freezer door I found at Southern Accents in Cullman. Everyone has laughed at me for wanting to make a sliding pantry door out of it, but now that it is up- some are admitting that they may have been wrong. This is just the kind of surprise I like to have in my house- something totally unexpected. I have been working on painting the new parts to match the old parts- keep looking for updated pics.

Front steps

We finally got steps on the front of the house. No more climbing the ladder!!

Marble Works delivers

The granite is in- and looks great.
The butler is going to love this space!
Alex's bath

Blairs bath- this was not the stone I picked out, somehow my stone got away from the store. This piece has turned out to be very nice, and even though the original stone for Blair was so pretty you could have used it for art, I like this one.

The kitchen- Awesome!!!
