Our Dream House


Hubby got the vanity and toilet installed in the guest bath! I got to break in the shower!

Friend started laying tile in the master bath on the floor and hopefully he gets it all done today! Trying a new type of grout that we are not having to seal and is suppose to be stain resistant. Friend said it went on great and the clean up was easy. He got some on the walls and it wiped right off. Turns out we are the guinea pigs for this grout in this area. Hope we have no problems with it. Would hate to tear it all out and re-grout it.
Will have to go up and look again but I believe it is TEC 500 Power Grout.

It is going to be one of those years! Ran out of tile for the master bath. Called and ordered another box plus another bag of grout.

We are definately giving new meaning to blood sweat and tears!
Hubby was trimming on a piece of wood trim for one of my pull out shelves and the knife slipped and he cut fleshy part of his palm at the bottom of his thumb. Refused to go to the ER. It was not too bad, but could have used a couple stitches on one end of the cut.
Hope things get better!

I sat on a folding chair and hung the towel bars in the guest bathroom.

More progress! Hubby got the 2 doors to the guest bathroom up yesterday and I got 1 stained before I ran out of stain. Going into town to have my stitches removed so going to pick up more stain and another toilet.

Our Dream House


Ok I am trying to not laugh at my poor hubby, but he learned to not hang doors when tired!
He hung the door to the laundry room backwards! It was suppose to swing into the laundry room not the kitchen. So he has to pull it and rehang it. Normally it would not bother me but it blocks a light switch hubby had to have.
So after he hangs this door that will leave our office, bedroom and bathroom left to hang! All the doors to the rooms upstairs will be in so that will leave the 6 doors in the basement.
Only doors left to get and hang will be the closets and pantry.

Friend got the floor tiled in the kid's bathroom yesterday. Might be out today to grout it. Even though the grout says water resistant I am going to seal the kid's shower as a safety measure.


Has anybody else used the TEC Power Grout 550?

Kids bathroom walls and floor got grouted today!

Going to talk to hubby about putting the hardi board down in the laundry room so my friend can continue on tiling that room too.

So glad I decided to hire him to do it since I cannot get down on my knees.

All the doors are in upstairs. Picked up the last box of tile for the master bath plus the 2 bags of grout. While I was at the tile store the area rug I was crazy about and found it on sale! It was over $300 and I got it for $175. Hubby does not know yet!
Kid's and I found some things for their bathroom today. Was pretty nice letting them pick out what they wanted for their bathroom.

Daughter and I went up to the house and hung the towel racks and hung the toilet paper holder.

There was still a film on the walls so daughter was wiping that off. Told her it might take a couple of times repeating that to get it all off the tile.

Trying to get a hold of the granite place to come out and get the granite put in.
