I'll give you an update on how our new build is going though. I was able to see it a few days ago. A lot of the tiling and flooring has been done or is being done. The ensuite shower is more or less finished, and it turned out pretty well. As you can see, they were short one tile so they'll have to come back and finish it. I'm happy with how we took a basic, inexpensive subway tile and did something creative with it. Yay! The darker grey grout makes the boxy pattern pop. What do you think?
We went with 12x12 white/grey metallic tiles on the floor. They are VERY dusty and dirty right now so you don't see their pretty irridescent shimmer, but they do shimmer! That thing sticking out of the floor by the tub is where the floor mount tub faucet will go.
Have I shown you the faucet? This be her.

Here's a view from the back of the ensuite looking into the master bedroom. Notice the carpet (which is exquisitely soft) is in. It's a creamy sort of colour.

The kid's bath has dark grey 12x24 tiles which again are dusty (you can see my toes in the dust)! There will be a pocket door between the vanity and tub/toilet so more than one person can use the bathroom at a time.
And the hardwood is going in. Whoot! It's maple in a medium to dark brown stain.
And some stunning black doors (we only did black on the main floor). Yum-dee-dum!
We'll finish those off with some sparkly glass knobs down the road! Goody. Goody.
So, that's where things are at right now. We're totally happy with how it's all coming together. Moving day is fast approaching! SO. MUCH. TO. DO. But this week we have fun!
