Long Over Due Update!!!!

Well we are just about to hit our 2 year mark shortly. We have now officially painted every room in our house. The last room we did was our sons. We wanted to hold off but since it is snowing here in Pittsburgh, we figured, why not. He wanted a snowboard themed room so below is what he got.

Basement Bathroom Tile Has Been Installed.

Well a few weeks ago I started on the Gameroom. I have the bathroom framed up and now the tile is down. Next I am doing some wiring for all the outlets and recessed and other special lights throughout the entire Gameroom. In few weeks I am on vacation and my goal is to frame out the remaining and also get the drywall installed. Anyways here is a few quick pics of the floor right after I finished the grout. Sorry for the Low Res. Pics iPhone camera is not to great under low light. Total Floor Tile Project Cost Per SqFt was $4.59. Total area was 30 SqFt. Bringing my total to $137.93. Not bad for a bathroom floor project. Total Hours of Labor = 5.

Sink we have selected. It is made by Allen Roth and is available at Lowes for only $269

Deck is Finished

It has been sometime now since I posted anything. We have been busy with allot of projects around the house. Here is some picks of the deck. This is step one of three for the back deck/patio area. Next week we are hoping to catch up with a contractor that is doing a paver stone patio for our neighbor across the street to get a quote on a 35'x16' patio. Fingers crossed the price is right. I would love to have it down before fall. I have also started my gameroom/man cave project. So allot of things to do. Anyways here is a few picks of the deck. I will try to add some pics of the deck at night all lit up also.

The deck all lit up.

Finally Cut Our Grass!!!

Finally cut the grass tonight for the first time. Still have some bald spots that need to be seeded again. Our Project Manager Mike has been dropping seed off to my neighbors so I am looking forward to getting some soon also so we can take care of our last few spots. Overall the landscaping company did a pretty good job. I must say overall this home building experience for me has been a great one.
