Color. I don't have it, apparently.
Is this brown or is it purple? Actually, I don't care. But it causes malcontent with my wife therefor I have fun with it.
I hate scaffolding, but it's gone now thankfully.
I want to write all about the second/current heat pump failure but I don't like "typing" with one finger when I can beat a keyboard at about 110wpm.
And I'm tired, I have to drive to Mt Baker early early for a training gig.

Tom and I drew straws and he won so he got to paint the ceiling in the entry. I got to spot the bottom of the ladder while he masked over the stairs. I love this man.
We (the girls included) also unloaded 2 pallets of tile and distributed them to their respective areas.
Tom and Hailey had already unloaded one while Amanda and I were away. Yep. 3 pallets of tile. And that doesn't include thinset or grout. You are welcome to come help anytime, my friends! :-)

Mom braved the snow to come help paint today. Here she is working on the craftroom:
She was a huge help! She put the second coat on the accent wall. Got the ceiling done in the kids' bathroom. Got the rest of the craftroom white done (almost) just waiting for accent wall to dry so I can do those corners. We also went around and did all the touch-up on the main walls.
And she brought Meconi's because she loves me. :-) I love my Mom! Thank you!!!

Went tile shopping today. I didn't realize how satisfying it would be to find the perfect tile! I was jonesin' for a cigarette afterwards!
We can't use real hardwood over the radiant floor and I'm worried about using laminate in high-traffic areas. (I had originally planned on hardwood in the entry way, dining room, kitchen and nook.) As much as I'd like to say the dog won't be allowed in the real house, I know he will so I wanted something durable that still has the warm look of wood. Lo and behold, I wasn't the first person to have such a need! I found this beautiful wood-look tile!!
Now for the laundry and bathrooms...
I really like this for the laundry room:
And for the master bath, I am torn between these two:
The second one is 12x24 and is only $1.49/sf.

The tray ceiling in the dining room... This was Tom's idea and it was a good one! So I thought it would be a good idea to paint it a lighter shade of the main wall color.
