coming to life

The most gratifying feeling has been seeing our abstract ideas (in our heads or on paper) suddenly come to life!

For me, the tile has been the most amazing since I spent so much time on it! It's wonderful to see it in reality. I think it evokes the vintage look we were going for, while looking fresh.

the bathroom fixtures and hardware look great too (many of them bought on line so we didn't really know until we saw them in real life).

D'oh. That black plastic pipe is going to be replaced with chrome!

So happy about the penny round feature behind the shower hardware! The tile setter was very impressed with the design! LOL!

inset looks great!

I am so pleased with both the floor border and the wall border! Both our own design!

And look at the fine work these tile setters are doing. Tiny pieces in the corners!

He used spacers for the border

But not for the "field" tiles: but he used a level for EVERY row! That's three bathrooms, in one of which the tile runs all the way up to the ceiling. Slow and steady tile guy!

Love the results!!!
Love it!

Love it! (and grout colour is perfect, btw. Well worth being picky over. Mapei "Frost."

The man responsible for most of it. Hard worker!

Stove put in, gas turned on, Andrew happy!

Ceiling paint on main floor. Jackie happy!

Girls happy! Cleaning and organizing some of their work-site treasures (tiles and cement chunks). They're planning to build a farmhouse.

Another beautiful day, and yet another beautiful view of the mountains from upper deck.

Brilliant work on the bathroom! And I second that emotion about gorgeous spring days in Vancouver!
