Guest Bathroom Update!

We are FINALLY almost done with the upstairs guest bathroom. Today my dad finished installing the sink faucet and the tub/shower faucet. We also hung the new blinds and put the door back up. All we have left to do is some touch-up painting, caulking around the bathtub, and hang the new mirror!

We also finally had a break in the rain this afternoon and started pressure washing the driveway. The results are amazing! You never really realize how dirty something like that is until you start to pressure wash it.

Lastly, we're having a some water issues in our garage from all of this rain. We knew there had been some water problems when we first bought the house, but we thought we had fixed those. However, with all of the rain we've had the past two days...we've realized we haven't fixed the problem completely. We're hoping the "puddle" doesn't grow too much more.

Here are some pictures from today!

Tub 99% done...just needs to be caulked.

Our "New" Deck!

Well...not exactly new...but it'll look new when we are done with it. We borrowed a pressure washer and have finished about half of our deck. It is amazing what pressuring washing does. The deck looks sooo much better and we haven't even stained it yet :) We're hoping to do the same thing to the fence (minus the staining...we'll do that next year) and I hope to clean off the driveway. I've posted some pictures below.

Tom finished the tiling in the upstairs guest bathroom. It looks great! I think it looks pretty good for us having never done this before :) I've also posted some pictures of this below.

We still have quite a bit to do before our open house and we hope to get a lot of this done this week and next weekend. Wish us luck!
Here are some pictures:

Basement Bathroom

We are getting close to being finished with the basement bathroom. We got the new vanity and counter top installed last week. However, to finish the bathroom we need to find a mirror that we like and a new faucet. After we get those, we can put up the backsplash, sidesplash, and top trim work for the beadboard.

Other than that, we're coming along on the unpacking part of things. :)

Here is a picture of the new vanity in the basement bathroom:
