Tiling update #1

We've just finished tiling the music room and hall. Doesn't it look great? The living room is next.
Here's grandma practicing her clogging and grandpa tap dancing to test out the floor.
Actually, we were kicking out the spacers so we could grout the floor.
How do you like the pattern of diamonds with straight borders to define the rooms in our open floor plan?

Benji blessed

Benji. grandchild 34, was blessed. Here's the proud family with the visiting grandparents. Doesn't grandma look happy with number 34?
Afterwards Bonnie fixed for us a low country boil--delish. She then surprised me with an ice cream birthday cake. I'm starting my 75th year and going strong.

Porch ceilings done

We have finished the tongue and groove ceilings on all three porches. Next is to add the fans. Here you can see carpenters apprentice grandma doing some nailing and holding the edge trim while grandpa measures to cut holes for the lights and fans. Join grandpa to enjoy the workmanship while sipping lemonade on the new veranda.
The fans and enclosures will come later this summer after grandma comes back from visiting Chrissy's new baby.
