A Home-like Hearth

Things are coming along at the renovation site where our office will be.

Most of our window blinds were special order, because they are so long. A few came in already. The one in my bathroom is a special favorite of anyone using that room for its intended purpose. We now have privacy!

Some light still comes in. And look, Tubby has fixtures.

We had two others installed but one broke spectacularly. Gotta replace it! But this one is fine, after a bit of trimming.

Doing its job.

We’re still working on the floors, waiting on some drying. But, today my little hearth got installed. It’s inset into the floor.

Preparing the foundation for the tile.

It was fun watching the teeny tiles go in.

Lots of squares.

It’s ready for grout, once it’s dry. We may do red grout. We will see.

Won’t a little heater look cute there?

Chris is now working on the mantel. We are trying different arrangements of trim, shapes, etc. It will be great to display things on.

Not the final product.

Oh yes, since the pedestal sink broke, I had to find another one. It needed to be small, since the bathroom is a bit awkward. This met all the criteria.

And it’s cheap.

Meanwhile, we are preparing for new safety procedures. Here’s Lee bringing our new router into the office. We’re following instructions. And hey, Internet makes an office a real office.

Mr. Internet.
