Return Home.

Todd and I were out of town for the last 10 or so days.....funny how fast time goes by!  We were standing at baggage claim at LAX last night saying how strange it seemed we were already back from that trip.  I was able to spend a lot of time with my family in Atlanta; it was a much needed vacation!  I'm missing them already!

While we were away, our contractors continued working, as there were several projects that would be easier with us out of the house.  Foremost, the chandelier in the foyer was replaced using scaffolding.  Then the foyer, hallway, and laundry room tiles which were uneven, cracking, and lacking grout were removed (which apparently was a huge job).  The floor was then leveled and laying of the new tile and grouting began.  Here are some pictures of the foyer before:

While many commented on this floor,
it is not as nice in person....
just photographs well! ;)
The foyer, in progress, now looks like this:

As you can see, the new chandelier is in!

In addition, the master bathroom was at a point in which we were temporarily going to not be able to walk through it to get to our closet.  Our contractors had built walls in our bathroom to close in our shower (no more brass and glass), and moved some plumbing in order to accommodate the new tub and additional fixtures in the shower.  They were ready to tile and needed us out for a good 3-4 days.  It was so nice to come home to this:

Shower enclosure - sorry so dark!

Tiling and new wall enclosing shower on left
Gorgeous white tile and new cabinets!
I was so relieved to get home and see that my design decisions were sound, and that nothing went horribly array.  I am now so anxious to see this all come together!  Off to pick up more tile! ;o)
