Master Bedroom

It's been gutted (almost) and the framing's almost done although I didn't get a picture of that yet. We're putting in our awning windows this weekend or next and really soon, we'll be rebuilding those floor to ceiling windows so they'll look very similar, but they'll be insulated so they won't ice over in the winter! We've got so many projects going on right now and I want them all done before it gets cold!

New Mantle!

We just finished the mantle for the fireplace, we're both excited to have something more than a brick ledge for a mantle. The mantle was made from baltic birch plywood and hangs off the existing brick ledge.
The mantle before...
And after...

Concrete Countertops (and running water)

We installed the two largest pieces of concrete countertops today and hooked up our new faucet and sink drain!
We're very excited. We can now fill up containers taller than 4 inches without using the bathtub and within the next week we hope to have the dishwasher hooked up as well.
The concrete countertops turned out very well. Zack wasn't too excited about the front edges, but I don't mind them. I think it looks just like a concrete countertop should. The edge around the sink will need an aluminum closure strip to hide that edge and to provide an easy joint to caulk.
