Prayers for Kaycee and Update on House

First and most important is that I covet your prayers for my great grandbaby Kaycee.  She is the twin who weighed 2 pounds at birth and was in the hospital for three months before she got to go home.

She is in the hospital with pneumonia for the fourth time since January.  She is doing much better today but I would still appreciate your prayers for the precious little blonde headed baby.

Now, to the latest on the house:

Because the wiring on the screened in porch has to all be up to code, it has to have all of the wiring in conduits.  Ugly on the wall - right?

Well, this is the solution the carpenters came up with and I think it was brilliant.

They built a false wall and covered it in what they call Boston siding.  It is a interlocking wood.  Doesn't that look alot better?  I sure do think so.  The sliding doors go right into the living room.

Now for a few photos of the porch.

The side facing the den of the house.

Looking out the back door into the yard.

The ceiling is done in the same Boston siding.  The ceiling will be painted the Haight Blue like the southern porches have and everything else will be painted white after two coats of white primer.

Except the floor.  I'm leaving it natural wood.  I thought the white would be dirty all of the time.

The bottom on the inside is the same Boston siding.

On the outside, the gray at the top is a wood grain wood siding.  The Boston siding is at the bottom enclosing the underneath of the porch.

My granite is in in the kitchen.  I must admit I really like it.  It's not too busy and is just gorgeous.

Also, got the sink installed.

All of the wall paper has been removed in the hall bath and new sheetrock and mud put up.

The white porcelain tub is in.  The surround will be marble.

Got the gorgeous new glass door installed today for the master shower.  LOVE IT!  Only one problem - I had bought Brushed Nickel fixtures for that bath and the shower is already installed.  So, I'm talking to the contractor in the morning and going to go back and return the faucet for the sink and the light fixture and get new ones in the oil rubbed bronze.  The door is just so pretty and it's a whole lot easier to change the fixtures in the shower than the door.  OOPS!

So, that's where we are today.  They are coming tomorrow to put the marble in around the tub and finish the sheetrock sanding in the bathroom.

My Air conditioner is fixed - thank goodness!

They are planning on doing the Travertine floor in the bathroom and the backsplash early next week and then they will pretty much be done.  My stove is backordered so I will wait until it comes in and have all of the new appliances put in at one time.

Oh dear, no cooking!  Too bad!  LOL

Hope you are enjoying my remodeling job.  My tradesmen have just been awesome.  They must have been raised right because boy, do they clean up after themselves. Spotless!!

I really appreciate them.  If you are anywhere in northeastern Oklahoma and need any kind of work done, I would highly recommend them.  Will be giving you all of their info later or if you are interested, send me an email.
