Things happening

Well it's been a while since I blogged but here is an update. We finally got the bathroom finished almost a year after we started it. The guy finished it up in Oct of 07 and it is beautiful but took forever.

Now the week of Thanksgiving 08 we started on a complete kitchen remodel. Walls gutted to the posts. We have a great contractor this time. He has the walls done...ready to paint and the floor is partially done. It should be finished today sometime and we can prime and paint on Sunday the 14th. My cabinets should be installed on Monday or Tues. We had our two old windows in the kitchen taken out and made into twins (side by side). They look awesome to say the least and I didn't have to have crappy vinyl windows. If I had been smart I would have ordered wood french doors made but I didn't have the time so we do have steel french doors put in. I will try an remember to post pictures soon.

bath remodel

Well our bathroom remodel started really last July or August (06) with the gutting. We found someone to do the actual work and he started in Nov 06 and here it is June of 07 and it is still not finished. We went semi gangbusters on it until we hit a snag with ordering the door. It got ordered but came in the wrong size. We waited another 6 weeks for the new one to come in. Meanwhile our contractor is doing other things and it is like pulling teeth to get him here to finish the job. We are so close and yet still so far away. Yesterday he put the door in and hung the mirror. He was supposed to come today and do the wood trim work around the door so he can finish the tile work. Did he show up ???? Heck NO!! I am so tired of his p*&& a&& excuses for not coming. He didn't even have the courtesy to call and say he wasn't coming. He just let me wait around all dang day waiting for his sorry a&& to not show up.

Our stain glass windows on the first stairwell landing. This is what sold me on the house. I went out and took some new pics of the house. Hope you like them. This shows the new drive we put in last year and part of the garage.

Here is my hubby gutting the main bathroom. We started this in July and it doesn't look much different today except that it is completely gutted and we have some plumbing lines done. Our contractor is not real reliable when it comes to time.

view of the deck we had built. We ended up taking the lattice off and putting up solid boards and we stained it a reddish color.

This is a pic of the 3 car garage we had built for the house. There wasn't one there to begin with. We tried to have it look somewhat like it belonged. The gravel is now a concrete drive too.
