20th January 2011


The past 2 weeks we have been measuring, planning and buying the materials for the renovation.

We decided to go ahead and replace the windows.  We found 7 that are stock and had to order 9 more custom.

The house has one full bath upstairs and the tub is place under a slope due to the pitch of the roof.  The former owner had tiled the walls, but only up to the slope. I want to finish tiling the roof area because it is very likely to get wet when the shower is used.  Matching tile can be near impossible, but I came up with a solution.  I’ll replace the accent tiles with a more neutral accent tile and replace the tiles above that with tiles that compliment the lower walls.  I’m going to use the same accent tiles for the edge trim it ought to look great!

We are going to stain the oak cabinets in the kitchen with a “pecan” colored stain. They’ll be a light golden brown when finished.  I chose a dark brown laminate for the counter tops that has a random gold pattern and I’ll be using cream colored subway tiles for the back splash.  We have found almond colored ceramic knobs for the cabinets.  It should look very inviting!
