Tile's finally in in the new bathroom...

http://public.fotki.com/Merc63/our-house/

Pictures of tile are near the end.

Last tile was laid about an hour ago. Next comes the grouting, starting Monday after the mortar has finished setting up. It's going to be a LOT of grout. After that, I can put the fixtures in, paint the walls and trim, and install the custom glass panels like in the rendering I had done (which it's starting to look more and more like).

Then I can do the carpeting in the rest of the addition and get my final inspections.

Gotta get pictures of the main house now, too, as it's getting it's new siding on it, matching the addition. And I removed the front porch railing to start building new railing to match the deck.

Man, this homeowner stuff is a lot of work!

I LOVE your wooden deck.. A lot of people have that dark wood but I like the light wood on yours. You have very pretty home.

That looks beautiful, I saw that you were thinking of doing glass brick instead of the sliding doors in your bathroom. My are that the sliding full glass doors look a lot nicer but its like having a black car, takes a lot of work to keep it clean, my mom had glass bricks and they just weren't appealing.

We decided against the glass block, mostly due to cost ($5k installed for what we originally wanted), and instead are going with glass panels, Still no door on the shower, as it won't be needed considering how large it is. The pic below is of the glass brick idea...

The grouting is about halfway done now, as is the siding on the main house. Progress is actually pretty rapid, all things considered.

Well done ChrisV

My wife (read she who must be obeyed) has informed me that I must build her a new home starting Xmas. I think I might go a classic Aussie homestead = sandstone walls,tin roof and verandahs all round with internal lap pool for this one... about 80 squares living (8000 sq ft). Feel like helping with the project?
