Bathroom Tiles, Appliances and Electricity

The two tilers’ trucks were parked in front of the house and there was also a large delivery truck this morning.  Once inside, we saw that he had delivered a dishwasher and a microwave oven.

You may remember this tile man from the floor tiles in the dining room.

I took a picture of him cutting tiles then and another one today.  I think he is using the same work table. He cuts the tiles in a flash.

The young woman was still working in the guest bathroom. It looked as though she was cleaning cement out of the gaps between the tiles with an Exacto knife.  I suppose that was preparing for grout.

The bathroom by Andy’s office was done. I’m having that warm gray tile and cool gray walls conflict again.  I’m  sure I’m going to be repainting the bathrooms a warmer gray.  I love the tiles though.

We went to the local Sun Trust office to open a checking account.  They said that if we opened an account with their bank and used it for automatic mortgage payment drafts, we would get a $400 reward.  It sounded like a good deal to me, especially since it is a free checking account and the bank is in the shopping center with Publix, our favorite grocery store.

After lunch, we went back to the house and found an electric company truck in front.

Electric Man had that big green box open.  I have always wondered what was inside those hideous boxes.  He was concentrating and did not look up at me so I moved on.

It was obvious the moment we stepped into the laundry room from the garage.

We have electricity.

So, of course, we walked around the house like a couple of six-year-olds flipping light switches.  Not everything worked.  The pendant lights over the kitchen counter did.

They look nice and white from across the room in the photo, but up close they are more amber than ever.  They are pretty though, so I may just keep them that way and live with my perceived brown/gray color clash.

I like the fixtures in the foyer.

I watched Tile Man putting the decorative tiles in the shampoo niche in the master shower. They actually look better in real life than they do in my pictures.  Here you don’t see the browns in the narrow band.

The young woman finished the grout in the guest bathroom and left. I guess I need some shower curtains.

I am beginning to look forward to moving in and living in a house again.

    Dinata, do you plan on keeping the RV and coming to Marathon during the winter?

    It is a fascinating challenge to start all decorations from scratch

      I did have samples to choose from when we picked everything. However, a single tile might not be representative. The paint batch is different. I’m pretty sure the sample light fixtures did not have that brown rim. And, let’s not forget the lighting. The room we were in had fluorescent lighting, which changes colors from the natural light we are getting in the house. It will probably all be fine in the end. If not, I’ll live with it! It is a tough problem; I don’t know how those decorators to it. Everything coordinates so well in the magazine pictures.

    Maybe you’ll find a shower curtain with greys and browns. If you’re going to paint the bathroom, do it before you move in.

      That is a great idea, but I have already scheduled our moving right after the closing and won’t have time to paint.

    I love everything about the house. It’s been a fantastic journey seeing it happen.

      I am surely enjoying every little detail too. We are going to miss over a week as we have a wedding and my 50th high school reunion in Maryland on the 9th and 16th. Drats! But, I can’t miss either event.

    It’s looking so beautiful, I bet you are sooo excited!

      Yes, as it gets closer to done, the more excited I am about settling down in one place.
