03.05.15 Granite counter tops, back splashes and sinks – Ta Da!!

im pretending to be here beach Thursday, March 5, 2015 – Shiver, shiver is all I can say about the weather here today. I’m staying inside the RV as much as possible today!

There is so much going on at the house for the next few days it feels like one of those houses that is built in 7 days!

The granite counter tops for the kitchen and both bathroom and under mount sinks are being installed today. The plumber will install toilets, faucets, etc. tomorrow. The stained concrete crew will remove the covering from the flooring tomorrow also (sealing the floors doesn’t happen prayFriday). Either tomorrow or Saturday the closet shelving guy will be here to take care of that in the closets, pantry and laundry room!

Sure hope each of those crews comes at different times! Let’s see how it goes!

Right now the money is just flowing out.  I checked our construction account and every day two or three sizable checks go through.

Sure hope today is the last day we see this for our flooring!

20150305_143526The counter tops are installed with back splashes and the crown molding for the cabinets is installed too.  When I 11034181_10101388058162614_4800682364405514984_nsaw it all coming in I was so happy.  After only seeing a 4 inch by 4 inch sample piece for so long and not really knowing what the whole thing would look like, I admit I was a little nervous about it.  Just like the stained concrete floors, we’ve not seen it sealed so we haven’t really seen how it will look.

So far all of our choices blend well.  The marble has browns in it that match the pendants and the dark maple cabinets.  It also has some golds that blend well with the walls.  It also has some greys in it that don’t match anything but we like the addition of that in the mix!  The bathroom granite has more black spots that go great with the espresso (black) cabinets and medicine cabinets.

Here’s pictures from throughout the process today!

Roy purchased Levolor horizontal white wood blinds for all the windows and is installing them as I am writing. Here are pictures of one finished and one he’s just started on.

Ya’ll come back now, ya hear!
