Monday Barb and I chose the plumbing fixtures...today we decided on the floors...
She preferred hardwood, as shown below on left...Bob and I prefered the wider plank, less textured ? selection on the right....it is not hardwood but its what she has in her shop and looks very pretty, wares well and is 50cents a sq.ft. cheaper than real wood...
The carpet shown is  what we're going to use in the bedroom.




This is the third day of work on the siding...

Progress Report...

'Finally got a break from the bad weather .... a bit more work completed ...plumbing and electrical roughed in, roofing, windows and outside doors...If there are no delays in materials should be another 4 to 6 weeks before completion. We're waiting for another bid on cabinets...the first one was way over budget.
