Lighting, LVT and loving our tile.

Today I had two sick boys with me all day. (Shocking that Niels got sick after sleeping with Typhoid Daniel the last four nights). After Niels got up, we headed to the house so D could sleep in the car and we could watch the progress.

In-Law Suite:
Jim Duffy hung the lights this morning so the tile guys could work on the floor. The bathroom is nice and bright now. 
Making progress.
All done!

Artsy shot to show off the subway tile set.
Another light up. These Maxim Malibu lights were such a good choice. They provide a ton of light and are quite a bargain. We used daylight CFLs and love the bright light they provide.
We found these hooks for our mudroom cubbies at Lowes.

Now to decide between three hooks or two.
Niels and Jim ooh and ahh over Niels' Dutch light fixture.
 Stairs and Hallway:
Our stair lights have been installed. These will be very nice when my vision is wonky.
The upstairs hallway lights are in. These are the three-light version of our ubiquitous Maxim Malibu light.
Laundry Room:
Putting down the luxury vinyl tile: Konecto Exotic Woods Vertical Bamboo (Caramel)
First peek at the floor by the wall.
And the floor with the maple cabinets.
And done. It went really quickly. It's a stick down plank tile.
View from the window.
All three of us were on the floor today. We'll put a tension rod between the closet and cubbies if we need to hang anything.
D's Bathroom:
Jim hanging D's vanity light.
D's bathroom is nice and bright. The vanity is the Urban from Menards.
We used the same Konecto LVT in D's room.

Master Bedroom and Bath:
Our ceiling fan is up! This is the Craftmade Fifth Avenue.
Our water closet with SW Sensuous Gray and the newly grouted tile.
Close up of the grouted (but not yet cleaned) tile. The grout color is Natural Grey, and I think it's a great match for the tile.
We really like how the tile surround turned out. 
This tile didn't have any matching trim, so the tile guys cut full pieces for trim.
Close up of the tub surround. Love it!
What a great week of progress it has been! What a difference from last Friday! Work will slow down over the weekend--the tile in the foyer and mudroom will get done. Then, on Monday, the frig and oven will get placed, I think our quartz countertop for the kitchen and command center will be installed Monday or Tuesday, along with the River White granite in the in-law suite. Also, to the delight of everyone, the toilets are coming!!
