I wish I could say great news but unfortunately the inspector did not show up on Friday...just a little more STRESS here.

The good news is this first picture is the final coat on the floor that has been refinished and looks like new. I can't wait to do the rest of the floors now!
This is after the 2nd coat.
The first coat
Getting ready to repair the spot where there was an electric plug in the floor and sand it. one of these days i will remember to put these in the opposite order.
Can't wait for it to be finished...just a few more days.

I apologize for not keeping you posted but there hasn't been anything to post. We have finally been given the go ahead to proceed. Can I tell you the waiting was way too much stress!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will call for an inspection tomorrow and with the other issue behind us they still have to make sure everything else meets the standard.

In the meantime the guest bathroom has been tiled and a first coat of paint almost completed. Grouting the tile is next and then we can paint the area above the tile that we could not reach today. Hopefully it will be done and usable in the next few days.

Thank you all for your prayers...IT WORKED!

This is sure beats climbing in and out of the window to cut the tile!

The cubby for shampoo and soap.

So...what do you think of the trim tile?

We do have tile in the guest bathroom and it should be done tomorrow and grout on Wednesday.

So what do you think of the trim?
