The family room

I’ve been dying to post this but was waiting till it was finished. Today the carpet was going in but the carpet man cancelled 🙁 My hopes were dashed but learning to be flexable. I can’t wait any longer so here goes. Upstairs in my house was a weird group of three rooms, two smaller and one ok sized. We nocked a few walls down to create a family room. Our house is a big house and has 7 bedrooms, with the creating the family room it left us with 6 so for sure still lots of rooms (one bedroom we already use as a school room).


Here is the beginning process.




It has really come along. I will update once the carpet is in. I am very pleased with how it turned out, I am blessed with a talented spouse.

Re did the upstairs bathroom

A few weeks back we finally finished our upstairs bathroom. It was pretty bad when we first moved in so last year we had it gutted and now finally this year we finished it. We hired my brother to do some grunt work than my husband and I finished up the rest. We mudded the walls and than painted. My husband did the pluming. Than we painstakingly cut and sanded each of the marble tiles.Yes we have a marble tiled bathroom!



Here are three photos of the process. Before paint, after painting and than tile work in the shower. We still need to put up wainscot and the shelves but other than that it is done.

Floor and looking at the feet of the vanity.

The vanity Clint put together, found a dresser on Craigslist, it was a little short so he bought feet to put on it than instilled the sink. He did a nice job. My husband also instilled a laundry shoot in between the wall. You can see it to the right of the mirror. Needs to be framed and put some type of door over it.

Out of the ceiling is the shower head and lights.The bathroom turned out a bit more fancy than I had originally thought. My husband has very fine visions and the ability to a actually do it.
