If you have been following the circus that is the den Boer home remodel, you will know I have often commented on the many holes, large and small, that seem to have been popping up in my home.

As part of the massive remodeling going on at my home, we are redoing our 20+ year old master bath shower. John Puie, of IDP Tile is doing the work. He started the demolition yesterday and I am already impressed with his work. As you can see from the picture on the right, we had a basic white til...

The Granite has arrived! Yesterday was a very busy day as was expected. The granite guys spent about 4 hours yesterday installing the new granite counter tops. It was interesting to watch.

As I was typing in the Title of this blog today I realized that this post would have nothing at all to do with the kitchen remodel! Yesterday was all about the plumber continuing to put in new valves for the showers, and the bath fixtures and new toilet guts. That's a technical term. We are putti...

Not much happened today. Someone was in the house today, I can tell, but not sure if they did anything. It could have been the guy measuring for the granite counter tops.   The cabinet in the center island shown above will house a mixer lift. The lift itself will swing up and out for use, the dow...

The Sheetrock guys showed up this morning about 7:45 to start filling in holes! They attacked the garage ceiling first, cutting new pieces to fit and taping and mudding them. Interestingly, it does not take too long to get new board in and to put the first coats of "Mud" around the seams. The rea...
