Last weekend my husband installed the new faucet for the powder room. Nothing fancy. but definitely a step up from what we had...
Thanks to Thrifty Amy's info about the Pier 1 credit card and the points you accumulate, I decided to go ahead and get the bench I've been wanting for the mudroom. It's the perfect size. My husband likes that we didn't have to mount anything on the wall, but he thinks it looks like it should belong in grandma's house. I disagree and am very happy with it. I have other ideas for this room, all I have to do is put them into action. It's pretty sad that my mudroom will likely be the first finished room in my house.
The driveway is almost complete and the sidewalk looks great. They still have some painting to do around the windows and the pillar on the front stoop. I cannot wait until we get grass!
There were workers here yesterday and they'll be back today to finish some items from the 30 day inspection. New kitchen counters are installed, electrical issues are resolved, a couple cabinet problems are fixed. All that's left is fixing the uneven floors in the kitchen and morning room. That should be interesting.
Oh, I almost forgot. We had heavy winds the other night and our shingles were flapping in the wind and we even lost a few. Our PM said it's because they were put on in the winter and the sun hasn't had time to really "melt" (for lack of a better word) them on yet.
|This picture doesn't do it justice. They were flapping like crazy!|
The good news is that they were up on a ladder the next day fixing them. So far we've been really happy with our repairs but I wonder how long it will take once there's not contractors in the plan every day - which won't be too long. There's only 4 lots left!
Have a great weekend everyone. I'm hosting my first holiday on Sunday :)
