"I should just stay composed and run to the finish line." ~ Asafa Powell

Well, by the time this posts, we should be well on our way back home. Our remodel has been quite an experience (a not yet complete experience), and we are happy, tired, and glad to be headed back north. I am including only a few shots this go-round; mostly of our new countertop. Once again - I promise a more comprehensive post in the future - probably not the next one (I'll be in VT), but perhaps the one after.

Here we go -

The flowers in the pictures are for our upstairs neighbor - who has been beyond patient with all of the noise involved in this project.

Some things that are being done as I type: 
  • closet doors
  • French door between the bedroom and living area

Some things will be done in our absence:
  • trim
  • molding
A number of things to be completed upon our return:
  • kitchen backsplash - which will add another dynamic to the kitchen for sure!
  • under cabinet lighting in kitchen
  • delivery of master bath vanity
  • additional tile work
And then:
  • furniture! I'm not sure that we will be able to afford any!
  • window treatments - we will live without for a while
  • dishes, towels, etc.


  1. Ah, the post I've eagerly awaited: the countertops. The gorgeous countertops! They are the crown jewel of your beach condo, for sure. You may never want to leave your kitchen.... Wishing you and Bruce a safe trip home.

  2. Just gorgeous! I'm glad to see that it is all coming together now. Enjoy VT.

  3. So beautiful!! I love what you've done. :-)

  4. Wow girl, you have been busy and what a difference. Of you will find thrifted furniture and that will be so much more creative and interesting!! Clarice

  5. This kitchen is beautiful, Tracy!
