T-5 days

Well, we are in the last week of the biggest part of the renovation. Wow, this has flown by and been terribly slow at the same time. Of course we are in crunch time so there has been a big push as pieces are quickly being wrapped up. Greg and I made a trip to Lowe's this weekend and changed a couple of our light choices based on a couple other switches we made late last week.  I've hit a wall with decision making. I didn't realize how many details we would be picking. Today I had to pick a freaking toilet paper holder!

Along with the lights, etc, we also had to choose a stain for the floor. I had no idea we'd choose the color. I assumed it was what it was, not so much. We started with three choices on Friday.  I was good with one of the choices but Greg was hoping to go a little darker. I pulled up the stain website and we requested two darker stains to see. I dropped by at lunch today to see if they were what Greg was looking for and one was too dark, the other too red (it pulled the red tone of the wood since the floors are red oak).  We decided to go with my choice "Early American."  While I was there I watched them install the bathroom vanity, I love it. 

After work, I stopped by and things had really picked up. They were installing the drywall in the basement, the electrician was installing the lights and the hardwood guys were working on the floors. I also found out that the radon mitigation pipe had been installed earlier. 

That's all I have for tonight. I'm getting a cold (great timing) so I will just share some pictures and then head to bed. Hopefully tomorrow I can tell you about a little hot water heater craziness (don't worry, it's fine) and add a couple other pictures from last week that I wanted to post but aren't relevant to this post. 

Bottom middle was the final choice.

Love these lights!!
