We're There

We can now get clean in more than one room of our house!

We had our glass shower doors installed a few weeks ago and have really been enjoying our new shower! It is wonderful not to have to dodge bath toys! I wasn't sure how the shower dimensions would be; whether it was wide enough or big enough to fit two comfortably. I didn't have any previous shower design experience to base our plans off of so it was more of just a shot in the dark. Well, after the inaugural test run, we love it!

The shower glass install was very interesting to watch. Definitely something to leave to the pros until you've seen it done. The frameless glass design leaves virtually no room for error. To watch them get the glass plumb and level in 2 dimensions while maintaining a consistent 1mm gap between the door and the adjacent fixed panel and keeping all 3 panels aligned along the top was quite impressive! Anyway, it turned out great and adds the final touch to the bathroom.

Since then, we've been taking it a little easy on the house and only working on the weekends. It has been a nice break. We are gradually chipping away at the little details like getting the crown caulked and painted. We still have some trim to finish painting and general yard and house cleanup, but it's definitely time to PARTY! Look for an announcement coming in the near future about an open house celebration so you can see it all first hand!

Oh, and by the way, now that we have all this extra space we're working on filling it up. Ciraulo baby #3 is due in September!
