a finish and a start...

The last piece of floor went down in Margaritaville..  Someone asked the name of the flooring..It's Sugar Maple by Lumber Liquidators.  It's laminate.  We put it over CDX subfloor and then used a felt pad that Lumber Liquidators sells.  When finished we had 3 pieces of flooring left.  I'd say that is cutting it close..lol

Rich added all the quarter round and then used matching wood filler to cover all the nail holes...
This is the leftover quarter round.  That larger piece is about 7 inches long.. We cut that one a little close too...
  

My design wall....and look at those lights!!  I LOVE THEM...  They are one of the few items from the original house that we are recycling..  These lights originally hung in the kitchen. We kept them and after scrubbing them down in the sink they are PERFECT over the design wall.

And this the door to the closet in the sewing room.  The second coat on the second side is drying and will be ready to hang this coming weekend. 
And so Margaritaville (formally known as the BASR) is finished...


So we took a nap, read a book, had dinner, went out dancing... started in the back hallway.  The back hallway connects the main house to the sewing room.  It also houses the laundry area and two large closets.


This is the beautiful blue color the previous owner picked.. such a small hallway for a big color... but the white trim was ok..

I painted the ceiling (it's still wet that's why it's shiny) and then used the end of the ceiling paint to start priming the walls...

And suddenly realized that the trim and doors weren't white..they are gray...can you see the difference between the wall/trim color and the door color? yea..gray...whatever...so now I have to paint all the trim and the doors..

All primed...  and there is the big laundry tub.  I haven't ever had one and I am so excited to have it.  It will be Olivers bathtub along with many other uses..

When we put in the door to the kitchen, we had to do a bit of demo..and we had a little drywall to patch. 

These are the cabinets in the laundry area.  Don't like the brown. And that light will be gone..

Cabinets and cabinet doors now primed....
And we hung the sliding doors in bedroom three...

and Rich rehung the screen doors and then moved everything out of the sun porch and swept and vacuumed it...so nice and clean now..

Kitty update...
Sadly one of the babies from the second litter was found dead at the bottom of the steps.  We still have four hanging out, a mixture of kitties from both litters..  We have no idea what happened to the others..

Yeah... sometimes that happens with little kittens.... either mom or others do them in, a lot of times it's just by mistake. Maybe the one fell down the stairs?
The Margaritaville is looking good!
A design wall.... how would that be?
LoL... you will enjoy that I'm sure!
The floor sure turned out nice!
Keep up the good work!

You all have done such a great job of this redo. I love it all and am very envious...lol. I did this about 19 years ago and it needs alot of redoing now. It will never look as good as your renovation but I just have to be excited for you. That BASR is totally awesome. Looking good! Have a great week. Karen

Good bye blue, hello new! If that would have been us, we would have had to make a special trip to buy flooring and quarter round! Good job estimating. Love your lights on the design wall. Very clever to use them there. :) You know I love watching your progress.
