I am now a cook with a grouted kitchen floor. No more food stuck between the tiles! My mediocre photo-taking skills are not capturing how pretty the finished floor looks, so you'll have to take my word for it.
We also now have art in the dining room--two big prints from Tom's canning-and-freezing series--and you can see a glimpse of a Hopi rug hanging in the hallway.
Tom's got only two more interior doors to rehab: dining-room closet and cellar. Countertop is on the way this spring, along with (I hope) a deck so that we'll have a place to sit outside this summer that isn't the front stoop. Someday the kitchen will have trim and cupboard doors. Someday the living room will have shelves for Tom's records and stereo. Someday we'll have upstairs storage space, and better closet options for visitors, and a bathtub that works. Someday we'll have a not-falling-down shed, and decent exterior siding, and a backyard that isn't bare dirt. Someday.
