Things have been very busy at the house lately
but first, I need your help. The house has a fireplace. useful, I know…this being florida, and all. but that’s a topic for another day. the fireplace is white, it looks like the bricks are just painted, but during the demolition process we learned that they are not real brick. it is stucco that has been ‘stamped’ to look like real brick. so it must be painted. we’ve repainted it white (for the time being) but I think that as we furnish the house we should do something to it. It’s kinda ugly right now. What would you do to it? maybe we should tile it? I don’t know. I know we have time to figure it out, but I know I don’t want to leave it like this forever.
And the kids bathroom got tiled too. It is finished, and I thought I had a picture of it all done, but I guess not. on the sides we did white 4×4 tiles with a tile replaced occasionally with the glass mosaic. it looks GREAT.
The terrazzo floors were refinished last week. They came out great. we knew that all the stains wouldn’t come up, but more came up than we were expecting. they are shiny and smooth now.Ceiling fans (that were selected by David) went in yesterday, as did new windows on the front of the house. What a difference they make. Even David, who is somewhat opposed to ‘new’ windows, had to admit that it made the house look great. I just made an appointment to have templates made for the countertops. we chose vermont danby marble for the kitchen (I can’t remember if we went with montclair or mountain white) and tea leaf silestone for the kids bathroom
Next week: the kitchen gets delivered and installed on tuesday and wednesday. Appliances get delivered on thursday. templates get made on friday. We plan on moving in July 4th weekend.
