The Maynard Cape: Kitchen Slab

Somehow in the excitement of picking out the quartz slab we wanted for our counter tops (probably because we'd never been brought into the back room before and it was overwhelming how many beautiful options they had) I never took a photo. So when we went back this weekend to pay the deposit and schedule the template, I asked to take a second look. So here is the quartz we decided on.

The Maynard Cape: Family Day

So the first floor bedrooms have been painted now and I am so happy with the color I chose (which is kind of a miracle because I always have that moment of buyer's remorse, Wait, did I just buy the wrong color?). I knew I wanted to go with a white because this house feels so dark sometimes, usually in the afternoon. But I realize now that two rooms have been painted that it was strictly the paint colors already on the walls that were doing that (hello deep red, navy blue, mint green, pink, and yellow bedrooms). So the paint color I chose is Sherwin William's Sincere White. It's considered a warm white. Already the first floor bedrooms are transformed.

The Maynard Cape: Some Progress

So I suppose that first I need to apologize for no posts last week. The first weekend of February, unbeknownst to me, my sister got a stomach bug and then passed it on to me. It knocked me flat out with zero energy for about three days and so I only lasted a few hours at the house each day. Taking pictures and then blogging about it was the last thing I thought to do when all I wanted was sleep.

The Maynard Cape: Floor Tile Goes In

This is going to be a short post and I apologize, but I have had a dry, deep-in-my-lungs cough for the past 48 hours that has turned my spine into mush and given me a headache. January is kicking my ass. 

Monday I got to the house before 8, which, if you know me, is crazy. I was at Home Depot by 6:30. It was me and a bunch of contractors. It was kind of refreshing actually, because no one was clogging up the aisles. AND two gentleman helped me load 6 sheets of backer board onto a cart, which was much appreciated. Then I spent the entire day installing the floor tile. Admittedly, yes, the tile looks amazing and I'm so glad I chose it. But also, it was such a pain to install. There was so much cutting, and while I managed not to get soaked by the tile saw nor lose an appendage, it was an arduous process. I feel proud that it turned out lovely, but I'm not sure I'll use a hexagon-shaped tile again in the future. Maybe for the right home. We'll see.

The Maynard Cape: Vaulted Ceilings

Last weekend I was at the house with my dad dropping off a truckload of 2x4s, trim, etc. We went upstairs for my dad to point out that one of the front bedrooms had zero insulation in the ceiling and I spotted a vaulted ceiling through the strapping (see below).
