Doors, tile and my tub

With the dogs up with us last week the visit was hasty, so we're back up north again already. There are trim and doors to see, hopefully that will come along quickly. The more daunting work looks to me to be the tile. A task I worked on this morning was to lay out the foyer tiles. The floor will be a mix of slate with blue ceramic tiles from Pewabic Pottery of Detroit. I bought the tiles from one of their firehouse sales years ago and have eagerly awaited using them. Soon they'll be a part of our new house! I'm happy with the quasi-random pattern the builder and I worked out. We also placed the tub in the master bath. It's so comfortable and I love the way it looks. That's all that needs to be done now so I get a day to spend some time outside. The weather is good, it's not too cold and there is fresh coat of packable snow. I'm going hiking around the land tomorrow.
The foyer tiles laid out, I may try and get a better photo tomorrow.Every time I see it, I like the crazy red in John's office more. A door installed in the master bedroom My giant soaking tub; aligned nicely so that I have great views in either direction.

I am really enjoying following the building of your dream home on Dog Hill. Your choice of colors are bold and beautiful and so exciting to me (not the standard builder's white). How lucky you are to have that wonderful soaking tub :)

Tub looks great!! I dig the tile--is he going to cut the larger tile to fit in the small pieces? How smart!

We're still working on the endless plumbing in ours--tile and flooring are the next steps :)

Thanks everyone! And yes the large pieces of slate are going to be cut to insert the ceramic pieces. I can't wait to use that tub!!
