Tiling is Beginning

Just a few updates so far this week.  The tiling has begun in the master shower and the family entry/bath area.  The master shower tiling is about 3/4 done.

We've had beautiful weather so far this week, so the exterior caulking was started yesterday and finished today.  They started painting the exterior trim today. The framers were suppose to be back yesterday, but have been under the weather, so hopefully they'll be back tomorrow.  They still need to get the exterior soffits and a bit more trim installed.  Then it will be on to the siding.

Got the air conditioning working Saturday and the sump pump going today.  So it can finally start to acclimate the hardwood.

We went to get all the paint for the house yesterday at Home Depot.  They were having a promo with Behr to get a rebate for $5 per gallon or $20 for a 5 gallon  bucket of paint.  So off we went to get 68 gallons of paint.  When we were getting ready to check out, they asked if we had a pro account for additional discounts.  We didn't, but now we do.  So more savings off the paint.  Before we checked out we were chatting with an older couple as they were buying paint and they asked the HD person if the veteran discount for Memorial Weekend had started, Yeah!!!, it started so there was another 10% off on the paint.  Love to save money. 

Next week the interior doors will be delivered.  Then late in the week the kitchen cabinets will be delivered along with the interior trim.  

So here are just a few pics of the tiling going on:
