Making Progress

You might have to be the person doing the work to appreciate a bathroom shot but the floor is in and looking good and I've had some fixtures updated.

I've also started on painting the shutters and exterior doors,

as well as stripping the old paint off the bedroom doors.

As we make progress, I'll keep everyone posted here.

Time Passing and Work Getting Done

Well, it was a very busy week.  I found and installed a new dining room fixture but can't find my photo of the install so here's just a picture of the fixture.

We got the base for a section of kitchen counter, and installed it so it would be in when the new floor is laid.

I also met with the flooring company,  picked out ceramic tile and now the tile guys are started on laying new floors in the kitchen and the bathroom.

Meanwhile, in the back yard, a Wisteria started to bloom and it's absolutely lovely.

I've been shopping for a counter top for the kitchen base and tomorrow I'll meet with those folks and have a counter top made.  While I'm waiting for that I will stain and finish the base and finish painting the shutters.  Grout will go on the floor tomorrow and we'll get the bathroom fixtures re-installed.

Things are moving right along and I see completion in sight, it's been a fun house to work on.

Floors Done!

It took me the full week but it was so worth it, the floors are done and looking good...

This view is standing in the living room, looking into the dining room and down the hall.  Now onward and upward to finishing the kitchen, installing a dining room light fixture and cleaning/unmasking the bathroom.

We're enjoying some terrific blooming trees in the backyard.

I think this is a quince of some variety,

And an Oklahoma Redbud, framed with Forsythia in front.

I'm getting close to done, stay posted for what this week brings!
