Bathroom and Kitchen remodel - Dec 25th, 2016

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hi All!

Lots of progress has been made since these two projects started, even though I was in Finland for work for 1 week. Small hiccups around the tile and not getting the ones that I had ordered and then scrambling to reschedule the workers. 
I have spent so much time painting cabinets that I seriously started wondering if it would ever be over.. thankfully, it is almost done!

In the bathroom, the tile on the floor is in and the shower has been started. Because the accent tile was missing they had to stop until it showed up. It just got there and they will be continuing it soon.

Accent tile... waited a week for this tile!
The cabinet frames went in while I was gone and the doors and drawers showed up this week. They were custom built by a local company owned by Mennonites here in the area and they are just amazing in their quality. 
Tall corner cabinet is a linen cabinet

Large two sink vanity

This past Friday the 23rd, we had the counter tops being put on as well as the doors and drawers so it now looks like this.. and the lights the electrician put in just make it so bright.
The doors and drawers along with counters are in..
Things are looking good to complete this by the end of the week... and I am so happy with the job so far. 

For the kitchen, we have painted all the cabinets, the counters are in and I had an electrician update the lighting. Now all that is missing is the tile, sounds like a familiar story doesn't it?
Stripping off the plywood to get it cut better - it is all the support for the quartz

The seam is glued and clamped while it dries

So much chaos when you are pulling all the cabinets and painting!

First door to be rehung... 

I tore out this light box with the terrible fluorescent lights 

New LED lights, so much brighter and use a lot less energy then the old tubes.
And here is it, as I left it to head to my sister's house for Christmas Eve, almost done!
The top cabinets are bright white, and the bottom are a dove gray. The counter is Oceania Quartz which is mostly white with flecks of silver, black and crystals. It looks so much better and I can't wait until these projects are done!
