stairs and rock ledge wall!

23 Mar

We’ve made some progress in the past few weeks so I wanted to share a few images. First, we had our dishwasher, garbage disposal, and faucet installed. This doesn’t seem like a big deal to most, but it meant we could move our kitchen out of our makeshift downstairs bar area and into the real kitchen! It still isn’t fully functioning because the range/oven and fridge aren’t in place yet, but it’s progress. And I’m in LOVE with our faucet, it’s so amazing…and our sink is almost too big. Especially going from a sink the size of a dinner plate to a sink that could hold a medium sized dog for a bath! I neglected to take pics of these items but I will once the flooring is installed…

Over the past couple weeks we also had installed the stone wall ledge tile on the wall in our sunken living room, and the wood flooring on the stairs leading into the sunken living room. This week, we have the floors going in, so stay tuned for pics of that! Once the floors are in, we’ll install the doors, the baseboards, and start moving in and decorating on the main level. I’m SO excited for that part!

WALL TILE: Thorntree Slate wall ledge cladding in Beau Rivage, $14.90/sf normally, $12/sf with contractor discount purchased from Travis Tile

FLOORING: Mineral Black Birch hardwood from Global BMS $3.25/sf (purchased online)

FLOORING AND TILE INSTALLERS: Perfect Floors (they have been great so far, we will post a full review after the finish installing the rest of the flooring in the main level of the house)

And now for pics!
