I found these cute knobs and drawer pulls at overstock.com. The price is right!!! I decided to order 1 of each to see if the color matches OK. I love them!!!

I'm so happy to report that the wallboard is all up in the boy's bathroom!
I worked on mudding today, mostly in the guest bathroom.
I came to a realization while sanding today... "Less is more..." This is my first time ever doing mudding... I'm learning to apply it sparingly... and smoothly...

Met with the cabinet maker today to go over his drawings. We spent a couple hours together going over everything.
Here's what he's making for us:
-cabinets in the desk area within the kitchen
-laundry room cabinets
-master bath vanities (his/hers) and make-up area
-boy's bath vanity
I was amazed when he said that he could have it all done in 2 1/2 to 3 weeks! Wow!
We finished putting up the drywall in the laundry room and I put a first coat of mud on all the nail holes... still need to do seaming and corners.
Put up 2 pieces of ceiling board in the boy's bathroom.

OK... just cut into one of my big rolls of Ditra. I was surprised by how easy it was to cut.
I've been putting this job off because it's my very first tiling job. Felt good to cut that first piece.
Now onto mixing the unmodified thin set!!
I am propelled forward by the promise of a flushing toilet!

We worked in the laundry room yesterday. Got the ceiling board up!
I also did some work on the guest bath walls... some sanding. It's coming out great!
My appliances are coming! They should be here mid-week! No, the kitchen isn't ready to recieve them yet... and the soapstone is still in storage... but NOT for long!
Met with the cabinet guy. So many decisions to make! Good thing that I have a good imagination!

I'm looking forward to heading up the house into the air conditioning to do some mudding. I'll focus on the guest suite today.
Yes, tiling is weighing heavily on my mind... because as soon as I get that done... Rich can install the toilet!
