But we need some extra light to see our very diagonally hip mid-century dream of a marmoleum floor!! It's a little wonky on the eye in this photo, but it's simply divine in person.
We hauled them over to the construction site and taped them up on a bunch of different exterior locations to see if we liked the color. Guess what? We DID!! So, we're sticking with a reddish brown called "Redwood" or "Sequoia." Oh so very northern California isn't it? The trim will be a white to "pop" the windows. Soooooo happy to have decision out of the way. You likee?
When we returned on Monday we got to see the "straw" meet the "pigeon. We're practically giddy.
The master bedroom?? A lovely shade of "storm" - can't wait to see it with the hardwood floors once they are unmasked.
I was over there this morning and they were starting the sanding of all the old wood around the upstairs. They'll give it a nice sanding and then they'll cover it with a couple of coats of clear finish. It's gonna be all pretty and shiny!! They were also installing the wood floor in the library (or half of the library that used to be the "bindery" before we made it into the Library). The bath tile is nearing the ceiling, they're grouting the front steps and I hear more rumors about railings being ready.
Best news of all? We are ON TIME for completion at the end of March. In just FIVE SHORT DAYS we will put in our notice to vacate our unit here at the Park Merced Apartments. I am OVER THE FRICKIN MOON!!
