We're getting to a point where almost all the progress we make is readily apparent, and it's pleasing. It's so nice to see instantaneous and highly visible results of your work. I continued tiling the tub surround, and I've almost finished the back wall. Jessica and Mom painted ceilings and walls. Dad tackled putting up insulation and drywall in the hole in the kitchen. We got a lot of work done this weekend, thanks to the help of some wonderful parents and grandparents. Thank you all so much!
We've been buying a lot of paint lately, and Jessica is concerned over color. The biggest problem is that what you see on the sample swatch thingy and decide upon is not really how the paint looks once you get it up on the wall. I suppose that's common, and even expected, but it's still a problem, and we don't really know what to do about it.
By the way, the pictures of the painted bedroom make the walls look strange (almost greenish in one picture), but they're a nice light brown color called "Cookie Crumb":
(Actually, they're supposed to be that color, but actually they're quite a bit darker. What to do...?)
