Week 23: Installs

The new fridge... it's pretty cool! (pun intended)


We replaced all the downstairs builder-grade registers with 'fancy' registers.


Our new TV being installed!! Now we're just waiting for cable hookup to actually watch it. A couch would help, too, I guess... The old TV took up too much floor space for this room so we sold it and got one that didn't take up any floor space at all.

Week 19: Small Stuff

Not much different this week; just a few small details that were taken care of:

The bannister hardware was changed from brass to nickel


The attic access was repainted to match the ceiling; it had been the same color as the trim and stood out too much.


The water heater was installed


The french doors have been cleaned up


And we have grass in the backyard!

Week 18: Oooooooohh, Soft!!

Soft soft carpeting everywhere!







The fireplace tiles are done and grouted. We think it looks so much better than the off-white tile that the builder originally used.



We now have drawers where there used to be a hole for a vanity.


The gutters have been installed too! You have to look pretty closely to notice them.







We found where they store the 'incentive' boats!!

Week 17: The Light at the End of the Tunnel

We have a house number by our front door!


Is it the Mother Ship?

No, it's just the light fixture in the foyer!


The hardwood floor is down in the foyer.



The correct countertops and the appliances are in.

Over and under cabinet lighting works!

The sink is in.




Pedestal sink in the half-bath.


The new tile looks great around the fireplace!


New trees in the backyard.


Floor in the master bath and the kitchen.
