wall colors and flooring

The last 3 weeks we have been painting, painting, painting. Paul, the site supervisor, was on vacation so it gave us the time to get the painting done. Yesterday and today were the first days back to work. The flooring was delivered during the week and they started to install it yesterday. The kitchen and dining room flooring is in. Gary's and my room is started. The vinyl flooring is installed in the bathroom.

Here is part of the vinyl flooring in the bathroom. Gives you an idea of what it looks like.

I sort of did this backwards, but here is the flooring in our bedroom.

This is a closer view of the flooring in the kitchen.

The kitchen

The other half of the room, the dining area. In both these pictures you can see the flooring and the green wall color.
This is Alex's blue room. We talked him out of going with a dark blue. I should say, Kara talked him out of it.

This is the blue in Gary's and my room.

Kara's bright green room.

These next 2 pictures are of the livingroom. The walls are a light buttery yellow but they don't show up really well in these pictures.

Last but not least is the blue bathroom.

Kara and I left today to head out to Houghton. She comes out a week early since she is helping out with freshmen orientation and training for leading a freshmen group the first half of the semester (FYI). We stopped at the house on our way out of town. The kitchen cabinets were just arriving. It was hard to leave since I really wanted to help. Now I have to wait until Monday to see them and to see how far the floors came along. The window sills have also been cut and are sitting in the windows.
Things are coming along really fast! The move in date keeps getting moved up. They are talking about September 8th now. I will believe it when we are actually in the house. A lot can happen between now and the 8th.
Time to go and let Kara have her computer back.

I always get excited when the painting stage start. To me, it’s like saying, “We’re almost there!” I always mark it down in my notebook as “home stretch,” even though it’s still a far cry from being finished. After all, you still have to do windows, doors, appliances, outlets, and cabinetry. Even so, the rooms start to come alive when the color is in.
