A Quick Update

Wow, it's been a while since I've given y'all an update! Well, not too many photo-worthy things (except exterior paint) have been going on in the past couple weeks, but quite a bit of work has gotten done! Our electrical work is complete and will *hopefully* pass inspection today. Plumbing is complete, and our bathtub has been set in the master and shower pan has been set in the guest bath/laundry room.

Oh! I don't think I have mentioned that we picked out the granite for our kitchen countertops. We went down and saw Steffanie at Valley Tile and Stone in Paso Robles, and she walked us through the yard to pick out our slabs. It was so cool! They have some amazing material out there. We decided to go with one called "Juparana Columbo Gold." It has a medium gold tone with black and green flecks, and some really cool movement. We also picked out the slate for our kitchen floor and travertine for our master bath at Valley Tile and Stone. They had an amazing selection and were extremely knowledgeable when it came to helping us pick the right products for our application.

This past weekend, we went to the Ferguson Showroom in San Luis Obispo to pick out plumbing fixtures for the kitchen and bathrooms. We had done our rounds at the big box home improvement stores, and we were not too happy with the selection, or the quality of products we found there. Ferguson, however, was awesome. The showroom was awesome, and we got a ton of personal attention from our sales associate, Carol Jean. They had a huge selection of products on display for any budget, and shelves full of product binders just in case you were looking for something they didn't have on display.

After our trip to Ferguson, we went to Stollmeyers Main Lightingin Morro Bay to pick out our indoor and outdoor light fixtures. Again, tons of personal service, and tons of catalogues to look through. We managed to pick out our pendant lights for the kitchen and chandelier for our dining area, but we'll be back this Saturday to finish up.

Anywho... here are the latest exterior pictures of the house, enjoy!

Next up... Insulation, drywall, and kitchen cabinets!!!
