Thursday 5/10

Brick update completed and lots of painters both inside & outside today.

The PM did a great job being proactive about the brickwork and oak staircase issues, were still tossing around what to do about the slanted tile around the tub...also we found a dent in the top of the stove today, ugh.



Looking MUCH better


finally got upstairs to see the rest of the stairs

    1. Ericka didnt want carpeted stairs because of the maintenance (carrying vacuum, etc) The ones we have now look like crap, and the edges of the carpet on the treads now after 4 years have a smooth surface and they are really slippery now.

  3. Your stairs are gorgeous! Has your PM suggested any options for the tub? The doors look great! I can't wait to see ours painted. I keep hoping they will be every time I go out to the house. It just makes the exterior so much more complete. I'm tired of looking at my white door!

    1. Thanks! We may accent the front door a red color but not sure yet. We like the Autumn Beige siding because the pink hue actually goes well with our red brick (and future red door) but it seems like its caused a real uproar with everyone else. I think the fact that we went with that brick color makes it fit in better.

      The PM was a little evasive when it came to the tub thing, redoing it would probably involve 2 or 3 sub contractors to come in one after the other so I can see his trying to avoid all that, but the more we see it the worse it looks. Im going to bring my mother through to get her opinion on how bad it looks to a visitor. We do plan on redoing the tile at a later date, so that is where the rub is...is it worth going through all of the tear down, etc, for a temporary thing? Not sure.

  5. I don't totally get the tub/tile issue. I can see the slant in as it gets further from the wall. My question (and you may have covered this earlier so bear with me), is it consistent across? Does it slant back out on the other side?

    1. No only the right side of the tile angles in on the left side and to the center it's completely straight and uncut

  6. This would go back to my earlier comment on another blog of deciding if the repair will be worth it. It would bother me....for a bit but would no doubt fall into the "Grey noise" of my life. BUT, I don't think this will be an easy fix if you plan to re-tile down the road. Something is askew here. Looking at it, I don't see the fix aside from major tile, concrete board, floor tile, etc... fix'n
