Only problem with this new grout is the film. Had hubby pick me up a regular sponge mop and used it to get the film off the floor and walls. Kid's bathroom is looking better.

What kind of grout did you get logluvr? Is it the kind that has the sealer mixed in it? Just wondering as I've read that that kind is harder to sponge off the tiles.

Things are looking great!

Friend came out today and got the rest of the tile down in the master bath. He is coming back tomorrow to finish grouting the tile. So hubby just needs to get the vanity and claw foot tub put in and that would just leave the trim on the walls and around the door and I am waiting til all the doors are in so I can stain and poly them.

Master bath grouting is done! It looks awesome! Need to mop it since the grout film is still there. It is hard to see until it dries.

Hubby is busy getting stuff done on our farm/ranch so the house has gone to the back burner.

Saw no reason to waste these small square tiles so had them put in where the tub will go.

Started doing research on a water filter and softening system. Going to have our water tested first so we know what we need the most.

Any suggestions on Brands????

Shower rod and curtain are in too!



Door is in too.

That was too funny!!!!!
Hubby got my claw foot tub put into place. He found the plumbing that was included did not fit perfectly. So there was a lot of cussing going on, well every time he cussed my tom turkeys gobbled back at him! ROGLMAO!!!!!!

He threatened to shoot them but he knows better.

Friend is doing other jobs right now and hubby is out getting our hay put up then we are going to start harvest. So no work getting done until things are done around here.
Next month is going to be totally crazy.

Hubby has been busy harvesting our grain crop.
We got rained out so he got the toilet, claw foot tub and vanity in place and working!







Got the rest of the doors put in too. Going to try to get some more of the cabinets built.

Still having some leaks showing up. Took one window interior frame out and started looking. From what we could find is the rain was coming in from a check in a log. The corners were the wettest. Going to get more energy seal and going to see if I can get my nerve up and start sealing as much as possible.

Got my nerve up and went back up in the bucket truck. I borrowed the wheel chocks from our fire truck!
Found where the sealant had failed at the bottom of the windows so I cut that out and re applied it. Also found a couple areas where it had pulled away from the wood and re did those areas. Also found that the silicone I had used as a stop gap between the sub floor and bottom log failed. I have over half of it pulled off and put on energy seal instead. Going to need some of the sealant though.

Ok.
Mother's worst nightmare happened on the 29th. I was at work and got paged out for a vehicle accident about a mile and a half from my house. It was 13 yo daughter. She was Mercy Flighted out. Broke a bone in her lower pelvis, has a tear in her ACL, a small fracture at the top of her tubulia and lots of road rash. So blasted lucky!

Well the hospital really started pushing for us to get out. The problems with this old house there was no way we could bring her home to it especially since I cannot get the bathroom and help her.
So hubby cleaned out the craft room and set up 2 beds up there. Got an old TV and a DVD player.
I got foam board and OSB board to go down in her room, the carpet is ordered. It is a tight short carpet si it does not catch the crutches or drag the wheel chair.
Got a foam glue that works for that along with wood. Store is going to have more on Tuesday.

So I will be home for quite awhile; a week to 2 weeks; so I should at least get the doors in the house finished.

Funny thing. The store I get my hose supplies from had a screwed up order and got in solid maple and oak bi-folding doors. They had them on special for $40.00 a piece. I got the rest of the doors for my closets!
