Yesterday was like bathtub came, the cabinets came and the hard wood floors were completed.

My dad came back to help--what a glutton for punishment. Actually he has been amazingly helpful and we appreciate it more than we can express, especially at his birthday and Father's Day. The children were disappointed when he had to leave. I am sure he will be back before he realizes or really wants to because he misses us so much--hahahahahaha. He does have a homework assignment, but the deadline he was given wasn't until Christmas

Anyhow he and Todd spent Saturday through Tuesday laying the hardwood floor in the house. the best way to see the magnitude for the project would be a picture of the family room, but before I got that taken the kitchen and bathroom cabinets were delivered and took over. So you can't see the floor as well.

Dad measured...only 2.5 square feet of wood flooring left.

So the hardwood is laid and will be finished last so it doesn't get messed up. The tile inside the garage door is laid and will be sealed and grouted later. Ryan also got the granite for the hearth laid and the granite around the fireplace done today. We have all of the first floor painted with a first coat. Touch ups will be needed along with the topcoat that will be a faux finish in the hall and bathrooms.

Living room colors. I will top coat the dark brown with a lighter brown glaze.

T is standing in the shower. You can kind of see the light green walls behind and to the left. Our bed room is a darker shade of the same color.

J started painting her room, but got over zealous and has a bit of touching up to do along with a second coat. The hall upstairs also is ready for its topcoat. I have the other bedrooms marked and ready to paint this weekend before carpet next week.
