Weekend Pictures

I took several pictures of the house project over the weekend. I spent most of the day Saturday covering walls with a second coat of paint, trimming stuff, and cleaning. We also had our heat turned on, so it was a nice 65 degrees in there all weekend. I took the day off yesterday (Monday) and spent most of the day tiling the floor in the mudroom/laundry room (yes, BY MYSELF). I was so excited to be able to do that. Of course, I only laid tile where no cutting was involved. Our tiles are 18x18 and we're finding them difficult to cut. I have to wait for the experts to cut them (Andrew and Wayne) before I can actually finish the floor. I hope to get most of the bathroom floor done tonight. Enjoy the pictures!

The start of my tiling work!

Our muddy front yard! It has rained so much here! One of my to-do's for today, is to call the excavator to see if they can do our final grading.

Our new front door handles and lock.

This isn't a very good picture but I love the bathroom blue (Yacht Club) and the new light fixture.

The light fixture in our bedroom. We love IKEA!

The lights in the "dining" room. This will go over our dining room table.

The tile work, when I was done yesterday (still not officially done). Sorry, I was trying to get a picture of myself so I could have proof I did this, but it didn't turn out well. Andrew forgot to take a picture of me! :(

Hopefully more pictures and progress soon. I think I will be most excited for the kitchen cabinets to go in. They are schedule for next week. We are taking a trip to Pittsburgh this weekend to visit the IKEA store there and buy some furniture. It will be so nice to have a weekend off from working on the house (although the more we work, the sooner it will be done).
