The End Is In Sight

I remember practicing for track in high school (mind you I never made it to an actual meet due to a 79 in math-parent rule).......and running completely around and the coach would tell us that the last corner to pass would be the toughest. We would be at the point where the end was in sight but also the most tired....that is the best way to describe our situation at this point. We have come such a long way and are now making eye contact with the end.......check out what we have been up to...... 

 I can take very little credit for this photo...Jake has been doing an excellent job of laying the floors. This is the view in our master bed looking into the master bath, and that is the shower door...

 Master bed. We really like the dark floors, but do see that sweeping will be a constant chore..

 Office, floor finished and ceiling fan in. All that is needed in the room is the base board trim.

 Both of the entry lights and nice view of the inside of the front door, lacking trim.

 Living ceiling fan!!!!! This is the reason we were convinced to go with these lights because it had a ceiling fan to match...and because they were love at first sight!!!

 Putting up the backsplash.....a chore that I am allowed to take most of the credit for. However, Jake did have to cut 80 or so pieces because I was too chicken to cut.... I did try though!!!!

 That is where the kitchen sink will be placed...with the completed back splash.

 Back splash behind the cook top......I am so pleased with the way this turned out. Megatron assisted in picking this out, super neutral and blends well with the rest of the living area.

 And.....tada...that is the pot filler, yes it is the third water fixture in the kitchen (fourth if you count the fridge), and yes it is above the cook top, and yes it is obnoxious, but I LOVE it!!!! So happy with this, it is 'totally with it' (as Padre said)!!!! :)         So there you go...... Where are we, you ask? We need floor in the living, kitchen and utility. We need to put the bar in, which we have the wood for. We have two more light fixtures to put in. Three more water fixtures. The hot water heater. Two toilets. Base boards and touch up paint. We have a TENTATIVE close date mid July and I am hoping to meet it! We have our interest rate locked and we are just waiting to meet the finish line!!!
