Tiles, etc

We went floor shopping last week and found the flooring for the house as well as the mosaic wall tiles for the bathrooms. And then yesterday we went down to pick out our kitchen counter =).
I did not get the name of the tiles for the bathroom so I will have to just wait and get a pic of them when they get here which will be around November.

Anyways, the flooring is by Rex, in their Leaves collection and it is called Nickel. In the photo it is kinda dark, but it is a bit lighter than in the photo. Also since in is porcelain, designed to look like slate, no two tile is the same so that it looks natural.

The counter top is granite and is called 'Brown Cabernet'

*these are not pics that I took,but pics that I found elsewhere on the net.

new picts!

Went to the house last night just before it started to really rain so it is kinda dark but oh well.

The main window/door over the balcony.

The front door.

The front of the house /entrance area.

Fotos tomorrow

DH just told me that they are building the walls up to the roof and then will be redoing the roof. We will be running by the house tonight with some friends and will take some photos =).

Oh yes, forgot to mention that we picked out our flooring the other day but have no idea when we will be putting it in since plumbing will be done in September and we still need to do electricity and the floor heating. Maybe in October/November.

Until now...

Here are some photos of what the house started off as and what has been done to it. We are enlarging an area in the front to add a living room on the ground floor and a bedroom on the first.

Things have been going fairly well so far I think with no big problems yet. We hope to be in there by the end of the year.

Yesterday (tuesday) they took down the roof and the enlargement has been done on the 2nd floor as well. I will try and get some more pics this weekend. Obviously, it chose now to start raining, so work might be slow for a day or two.


I am starting a blog of the house that we are rebuilding so that you can all see what is going on, when, etc. Also so that way I can see that yes, stuff is being done to IMPROVE the house, even when it looks worse and worse =).
