We spent the day checking more tasks off the to-do list - grouting the master bath shower walls, trimming out the remainder of the doors and windows on the second floor, finishing floor trim in the second floor bedrooms, and for me, puttying all the nail holes, and for Brian, plumbing the guest bath on the second floor and doing some electrical work in the master bathroom. The guest bath now has two working sinks so it is very nearly complete. We ran into a small problem with the master bath vanity when Brian discovered that the installers drilled the faucet holes too close to the sink, leaving no room for the valves. I would be upset but it was the end of a long day for the installers and it's a problem easily fixed...just as soon as I get the granite company on the phone tomorrow and get them to send someone out. In the meantime, I am still spending far too much time admiring the marble kitchen countertops (gratuitous picture above) to be particularly bothered about the bathroom.
All in all, it feels good to be making visible progress on the second floor, especially after so much time spent laying the (sometimes literal) groundwork for these projects. We'll spend some evenings this week ticking more tasks off the list and hopefully be ready to start painting next weekend!
