Anyway, the sub-contractors, who actually do the work have been great so far. Every room in the house had been painted except for the living/dining room. I love all the colors I picked out! I'm nervous to see how my "Greyish" turns out in the living/dining rooms-hopefully I will know soon!
All our HVAC ducts were replaced yesterday, and I met with the subcontractor doing our flooring. I wasn't too impressed with him or his samples, so I'm hoping that works out. I really wanted the same tile put back in the kitchen that we just did, so he said I could let him know the info on it and he would get it. I figured while I was at it I would pick out different tile for the bathrooms, too. I asked how much insurance was giving us per square foot for the tile in the bathroom. I was not thrilled with his answer of $2, but figured I would work with it. If I found tile I like that was more, we could just cover the difference (like we have on everything else so far-ha). Well, I went to my fav tile store this morning, Mosaic Tile, and my fav sales associate really helped me out. I was hoping to do a 3x6 travertine for the bathrooms, but that was a little pricey. I explained to her what was going on, and she let me know that they just put a bunch of tile on clearance-jack-pot! I got to pick out totally awesome (but not travertine) tiles for rock bottom prices-take that $2 a square foot!
All this with a numb mouth since I stopped by after my dentist apt this morning. With all this running around town, I may need some alternative transportation-maybe I should take some tips from my brother.
This is him with his girlfriend, Betsy, last week in Thailand.
