The Bee Hive

Aside from the hundreds, no thousands of yellow jackets at our new place, the house was a buzzing with activity!  The carpenters were there doing the trim, doors & fireplace mantel.  I don't even know how many guys were there. 

Lots of doors and lots of trim were installed today.  I have only taken one photo of an installed pocket door & I think we have six total.  The windows in the great room/dining area are completely wrapped with trim.  The rest will  only have a wood sill.  The following are the photos I took today:

Next is the front door:

I don't think it will go in for a day or so.  They need to get the hardware so the door can be locked.
This is the pocket door that will go on the office:
I think the mantel is beautiful!  They are doing such a wonderful job: 

Today the siding guys worked on the East side of the house.  It's sure going quickly.
The front of the house looks amazing.  One more gable and they will be done with it.  Then the back of the house.

Our showers look so great.  I love the tile choices we made.  OK, I had the biggest say.  

I love that the tile goes to the ceiling. I'm sure the tile guy would have chosen a different tile!  I think I'll really like the glass tiles that match the floor that are randomly placed.  There are two niches and there will be a small bench. 
The backsplash on the Jack & Jill vanities is the same accent tile used in the shower.  I thought they were using the subway tile, but I am so happy with what they did.

And last, but not least is the kitchen.  The countertop did get oiled, but the carpenters have sawdust all over it, so it's kind of hard to see.  Check it out!


I could not be happier with the countertops.  Amazing is all I can say.  I love the veining and how "soft" they are - soft to the touch.  Soapstone is softer than granite, but it has been used for 100's of years in Europe.  I look forward to using them.

 Only 21 more days until the Certificate of Occupation!  Woohoo!
