Last carpet installed!

The list of things to finish is long but at least the last of the carpet is now checked off!

Closet under stairs?

Master closet?



Every time the girls go up or down I hear 'Oh my God, I love these stairs!'.  I'm glad we have built this house the way we did.  Sure makes us appreciate every little detail.

Now you see it...

Now you don't...

The pool has gone to a family with several young kids. I hope they get many years of enjoyment from it. Now it's time to convert this space into a fire pit / entertainment zone! And since Tom put a water spigot out there, I think a covered area with a bar sink may be in order...

Stairs continued

We don't like to move too fast on our projects... lol. Tom has finished the cherry  for the stairs. Now they are just waiting for me to get the carpet guy scheduled. And he has to do the caps at the railing base and stain the handrail to match.

Tom is so busy working on the stairs he hasn't made time to post about it! Guess I'll help him out a bit.

Before. Construction stairs with the layers of splatter to prove it.

We decided on cherry to match the rest of the cabinetry. Tom glued and biscuited the layers together to cut for the sides of each tread.

Risers getting attached.
What a difference just the risers makes!

And finally, starting on the treads. Just 6" on both ends which will be finished off with carpet down the middle.

Master closet continued

Tom and I got the closet system up last weekend.  It's so nice to have everything put away finally.

I can actually see the shower area again! Really looking forward to making it functional.

Master closet start

Finally getting to the master closet. I am so excited to get our hanging clothes out of the shower area and put away on a respectable closet rod! Not to mention the stuff still in boxes.

So while Tom and Hailey are out of town for work training, the closet system was delivered!
Amanda and I got this double pallet of boxes onto the front porch and I put 20 drawers together.

Then I worked on painting the walls.

Hopefully, Amanda and I can get it all installed before they get home on Thursday... Wish us luck!

Guest bathroom - more progress

We are getting the itch to finish the many little (and some not-so-little) projects on our task list.  I started with the guest bathroom.  I finally textured the wall repair from the former shower. 
And painted. You'd never even know there was a repair. :)

Then I put up the vanity light with a little help from the husband.

Now I can put up the trim boards and build some floating shelves for that corner to display my small bird nest collection. :)
