Have to wait on pool progress until I have real electric running to house meter. I'm having Leo do the granite countertops, I'm going to look at granite slabs tomorrow. Cabinet guy is supposed to be here any day to put island panels on. Final plumbing will begin when floor is finished. Thomas and I are working on getting wood floors (for bedrooms) picked out and installed. Almost done!!

Garage Doors, Floor Tile, and Roof Continuation

Today I got 1 1/2 garage doors stained. Almost all of the great-room floor got tiled. Roofers are about halfway done with the roof tile.

Below you can see how some of the tiles are boosted. This is a how they install new tiles to appear old, and more like a traditional Spanish clay tile.

Garage Doors, Roof, & Tile Floor

Garage door were installed today. I'm so happy with the way they came out, I just love them. They need to be stained within 48 hours. I'm thinking something like a chocolate brown.
Floor cracks were prepped for tile and all the tile arrived today.
Roof tiles are being laid out and getting boosted which is when mortar is placed between the roof tiles on the bottom edge and then another 20% or so of the roof tiles get raised with the mortar.
