Aren't there always delays?

Last week we had a little delay in progress. Clay was sick and I needed his help so I could get the cement board on the bathroom floor. This meant I couldn't start tiling the floor until this past weekend. While Clay was working in the kitchen getting the extra cabinets we needed built, I worked on the bathroom floor.

The kitchen is turning out amazing. I'm really excited to see how it all ends up, once all the finishing details are in place.

Getting the sink base built! (Love that sink)
Every day we get a little closer to being done. This weekend it's all in Clay's hands, since I will be heading to Florida for a few days. I was hoping to have the bathroom floor done, so we could a toilet installed and finally have a somewhat functioning bathroom. That's right in the year we've been working on the house we have never had any form of functioning bathroom. It's all coming together now though. Clay actually found a recessed trash can for the bathroom today, to help keep doggie noses out of the garbage. It will be set into the wall, so it will also be nice to keep things like that off the floor. We have been trying to find unique storage solutions throughout our house to make the best use of small spaces.

Working with a pattern this small could have turned out poorly, but so far so good.
We are hoping to have a move in date sometime in February, but who knows really. Eventually it will be done, we just have to keep pushing ourselves to that finish line. After that you will find us on the porch with a cocktail in hand for the next year.
