Reno you say!
Did you not just move into a new home?
Did, but every time we wanted an upgrade from the builder offering, Cha ching! Another $1000 , please.....
So we decided to sub contract out some of the things we wanted done like the under cabinet lighting , back splash and valance.
For last 2 days it has been a construction zone.
Did I mention I hate the dirt and upheaval?
Xenon under cabinet lighting installed,Xenon is said to be more natural than halogen and produces less heat. I would agree with that , the light it proves is lovely , still generates lots of heat..
Here are the natural slate tiles ready for sealer.
Tile on back splash ready for grout.
Tile now grouted , drying and in 48 hours another 2 coats of sealer to be applied.
Still to come the valance. Hopefully by the end of the week.
Has all the mess and upheaval been worth it?
It looks great so far..
Financially costs are half what the builder would have charged.
The bonus is I also feel like I made a friend. The tiler that was recommended to us , a lady. Lori, is a wonderful person. We hit if off immediately , Lori does jigsaw puzzles like myself and reads the same books as I do, JD Robb among others.
So many common interests.
She even brought me another jigsaw puzzle to do when finished the one I am currently struggling with.
