Tile goes in


Eli has been working on the tile install for the last few days.  We’ve had to make some adjustments to get the optimal placement of “whole” tiles, but it’s coming together fairly well. 

Tile can be unforgiving when it comes to anything out of plumb or not level!  The grout will camouflage some things, but not all. 

Tubs Arrive


The bath tubs arrived yesterday.  These are the first items so far that reflect something “finished” in the house.  Fortunately, they look as good in real life as in all the photos! We love how simple and modern these MTI tubs are.  Check out their web site here:

Bathroom Tile


Nancy has spent a lot of time scouting for unique materials for our project. One of the items we have purchased way ahead of time are the floor tiles for the bathrooms upstairs. These tiles are have a steel-like texture and tone - from Porcelanosa. The pallet arrived the other day and I can’t wait to see them go in. (I know, it’s going to be a long wait!.)
