izzy’s bathroom progress

November 30, 2011

Here are some snapshots of Izzy's bathroom progress.

Izzy is a stylish little girl who is not afraid of color… and boy oh boy does her bathroom have it!

Check out this behind-the-scenes look at how her very own bathroom is turning out!

 
 
1. Since this floor will get tile, the installers had to make sure that the floor was level… they poured the leveling agent and taped off the room to prep for it.
 
2. The floor tile was laid and is being hidden (and protected) under paper as the installers work on the white subway tile walls and glacier blue accent ribbon.
 
3. The shower tile is up and the rest of the wall tile is getting close! The White Ice granite counter tops were installed too…
 
4. After the tile and counter tops, the plumbers, electricians, and painters are itching to get in!
 
 
 

It's painted!

 
 
 
With the bathroom freshly painted, the mirror, artwork, and accessories will finish off the bathroom!
 
I bet Izzy’s is so excited to move in – wouldn’t you be!?

where the sidewalk starts

November 7, 2011

Over at our Edina project, the sidewalk and driveway were poured last week… look how the family personalized it before the cement set!

This sidewalk will be especially important for DD, active mother and grandmother, who has her very own suite on the main level complete with sun porch, bedroom, walk-in closet and universally designed bathroom for easy use of the space.

By not having steps up to the house, it make the front door very accessible, and it provides for a nice sized front welcoming area.

Next spring (when all the snow melts!) the family will landscape the front yard and add in a patio that will be accessed off this front porch and a blue stone walkway that will wrap around the right side of the house to the main entertainment space in the back yard.

What a great project this is turning out to be!

Stay tuned for pictures of the main level cabinet installation!
