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.
