Today's progress - pictures! carpet and tile
Jake enjoying the new smartstrand carpet. It is so soft!!
(I forgot these post in reverse order, and since I'm lazy, this will be "backwards day!")
This is a shot of the final product, you can see the worker is buffing off the haze, and the green patchwork walls in the family room where the carpet has been ripped out. The stripes is really just the sun shining through the balcony spindles from our west facing room.
Close up of the tile and grout after the grout has dried. There is still a haze, and these photos were taken from my phone camera. 18X18" tiles.
A shot with the kitchen cabinets. They chipped up my new paint job in several places. this is before they replaced the quarter rounds. My painter is paid by the hour, so he won't mind fixing it. The cabinets are white, not yellow or cream like it looks here.
Tile with grout still wet. I kinda like the darker grout, but the lighter is fine with me too!
This is the dry rot they found underneath a second layer of vinyl. I knew there had been a dishwasher leak, but who knew it would be so rotten?? They took out a large rectangle of floor down to the joists and found several cracked joists. The floor had sunk and so they put in a support beam and jacks to level it out. Thankfully, the granite had seams so it did not crack when they jacked it up.
See what I meant about drama? Drama comes with a hefty price tag too!
Hi!! I'm Stephanie , a 45 year old SAHM to fraternal twin 11-year old boys. At the moment we have 1 fish with a dog to adopt when we settle in a new home. I love to walk, read, mess on the 'puter and watch tv, walk on nature trails and breathe in fresh air and cook. I love God, and my family, and people in general who constantly befuddle and amuse me. Livin' in South Carolina and newly retired from the Army and looking to buy our first home and planting ourselves for longer than a 2 year stretch! How exciting!
