While We Were Out…

… our bathroom was tiled! Okay, so it wasn’t completely finished when we go back, but it is now and it looks marvelous!

So that was the state of things when we got home. The next day, the tile crew came back out and finished installing the tile. As you may have noticed from the photos- there is no grout! They weren’t able to finish that day so they came out again the next day (yesterday) and finished it all up.

beautiful!

Now we just have to install all the fixtures!

Another thing that happened while Jacob and I were on our honeymoon is that my dad started replacing all of the exterior trim around the back area. Why so? one may ask- I mean we just did that last fall! Well, one of the joys of doing most of the work ourselves is that we learn a lot. Like, there is such thing as indoor trim and outdoor trim. We accidentally bought and installed indoor trim on the outside- oops! So my dad, being the awesome guy he is, used some of his vacation time to rip out the old and put up the new. Good thing too, because once my dad started pulling that trim off it just disintegrated- not a good thing (although it did make demo go a lot faster!). Thanks dad! Once all the trim is replaced, then we finally get to paint the exterior.
