Thanks Barb.
On a good note saved all my birds except for 2.

Hubby has 3 more cabinets done!
Trying to decide on cabinet color. Tried 14 different stains and I think I might of found the 2 I really like. Looking at a pecan color for the main part of the cabinets and a teak for an accent color on the inside of the raised panel of the doors.

Well the shower was ALMOST finished yesterday. Short 5 tiles!!!!!
Called the tile store and ordered another box of tiles. Thought we had enough for even to have extra tiles left over!

Friend started putting tile on the walls in that bathroom. He loves the tile I picked. Will have to get some pictures.

Our Dream House


It must be going to be one of those years. Hope it gets better.

Waited for most of the day for a vanity I bought online to be delivered. Hubby was told last week it would be here between 9am and 11am. I checked the tracking number and discovered it was set for 2pm. Ok I can handle that then the driver called at just before 2pm to tell me he was just leaving the depot!
He got it here and we checked it over completely and it was in great shape. As soon as hubby and I got it in the bathroom I headed for town with our clothes washer which was quiting on me.

Well to catch everyone up on what is going on we ran out of tile for the master bathroom floor. Needed 6 more boxes. I picked those up yesterday along with the grout.
I also picked up the shower curtain rod, bath towel rods, toilet paper holders and checked in with the place I bought the granite for the kids bathroom vanity.

My kitchen sink should be here tomorrow!
Ordered my clawfoot tub. That should be here either the end of this week or the middle of next week.
Picked up a toilet for the guest bathroom. So that means 1 toilet left to get!

When we found we were short tile my friend went and tiled his folks house. I saw him the other day and I expect him back next week to finish the tile.

Hubby is out farming and once he has the spring crop in he is going to go to work on getting the upper cabinets done in the kitchen.
I have been chinking between the top logs and the ceiling. It is really sealing the house up. Read some information in a log home magazine about air leaks around the doors and windows. Builders will put the pink fiber glass above the windows and doors while the house settles, but no one pulls it out after 3 years. So they advised to pull it out and put spray foam in there. I plan to do that.

I ordered the 11 interior doors we need yesterday too! They should be here in 2 weeks. Then I am going to stain and polyureathane them.
Only doors left to get will be the bi-fold doors to the closets.

I cannot believe how close we are to being done. I was in the basement of this old house getting something off the top of a cabinet and it just touched one of the support beams and the beam is dry rotted big time! Chunks of it just fell off. Yeah scarey!

Waiting for my friend to get back to finish the tiling.

My right knee decided to go out on me again and I am scheduled for surgery on the 6th. Going to try to find out what is wrong.

I got my latest log home magazine and read a rather interesting article on sealing air leaks. So I followed what they said. I took the top trim piece of the windows and doors down. then took out the fiberglass insulation and put in window door spray foam. I found the last few leaks around the windows that were driving me crazy! Ran out of the spray foam and need to get some more cans of it.

Got more chinking up.
