ParkView Update (overdue!)

Hi Guys!! Hope you have been enjoying Spring this week. Did I mention they cancelled it here?? Really, we've had snow and grossly freezing temperatures. Yuck. 

I said I was going to show you my ParkView update last week, but guess what? This little guy isn't doing so hot.

As I type this he is having some minor surgery, which I am hoping helps him feel better because he hasn't been himself for the last little bit. It was last week that I noticed he wasn't eating and just seemed to be weak and unable to walk properly so we took him in and ran a variety of tests and diagnostics all day last Thursday. So I'm crossing my fingers he we will back to my lovable, spunky Mungkee soon.

Besides Doggy Drama, I've had roofing drama and tiler drama. Which has left very little energy for blogging...

I'm not going to go into details because it just doesn't seem professional, but Mama had to be a boss and had to say "You're fired" a few times in the last few weeks. It cost me some time, but I know I made the right decision.

I will bring my camera to the house tomorrow morning and show you some more dramatic changes, since all of these were shot over a week ago already!

Some of my tile choices.

Here is our family room off the kitchen with all the new wood in!

And also in the den/office. We have all our tile and wood in now, so just carpet remains to be done upstairs which will happen at the very end.

Needs to be wiped down again, but here is my grey tile in the mud room.

My most exciting progress has been the bathrooms, which are my idea of heaven!

I did extra wide subway tile in both showers, with a mosaic glass/marble band like I did in Lexington. I only needed 9 sheets to do both showers and just had them cut into thirds.

The grout wasn't done yet in this shot, but it is very true to the final product as we did a grey grout for lots of contrast.

This walk in shower is going to be my favorite thing in the house once the glass is installed!

I promise to let you know how my baby is doing tomorrow, and show you some more fun shots at ParkView.

And hey, Torri, can you send me the ParkView blueprints????? THANKS!

Loving it all! The bathroom tile is beautiful! Makes me want to redo our bathrooms. Are the floors heated? I hope your Mungkee is on the mend and feels better soon.

I'm so sorry to hear that Mung-Kee isn't doing so well. :( I hope he's on the mend soon and feeling back to his healthy self. <3

I couldn't stand it if something happened to your little furry baby - please do keep us posted!

The house looks ah-Mazing! We are currently remodeling our bathroom and I VERY much want to put the same floor down as you did but my husband isn't having it. He tells me it'll be too slippery - while I don't want him to break his neck on the floor, I'd still REALLY like to have it!

Much love and thanks for the update!

I hope your doggy feels better soon!!!

Looking good, girl! Looking GOOD! The classic choices you made would make anyone want to snap up Parkview in a heartbeat.

And way to be a BOSS! It's business as usual, when it comes to that sort of thing. Way to stay strong!

Hope Mungkee is recovering, poor little dude. Talk about an emotional toll. I could just eat him right up, the furball.
