Grouting With No Pouting... 101

Click here to see
Yes we grouted on Saturday.  No pouting was involved.  They say couples should hire a marriage councillor when renovating, but I must say we work and fight very well together.  The dormer build Click Here To See It ,  was probably our second hardest test.  We passed with flying colors, with a  lot  few colorful words coming out of my mouth.   Our first project, excluding our chicken shed, was an extension onto our 108 year old house.  That was a long and trying task.  We came out of that project  dealing with much knowledge but tired bones.   We took a long break.  I think we had a case of The Renovation Burnout.  When the roof on the old house needed to be dealt with, we were back in reno mode.   This was when my decision to start blogging came to light.  I had been blog hopping and admiring from afar, and thought, I could do that.  So here I am, with my feet on the heat vent getting toasty warm, (we have an ancient furnace that blows hot air) armed with my laptop, yammering on and on while you're thinking, get on with this gibberish.....where's the darn pictures?
Without further adieu, I give you

Please stay tuned for the start to the new master bedroom.  We have to vacate our old bedroom for more plumbing and behind the scenes kinda things.  I will be posting in one week or so, as this week will be a write off with appointments and life!  Except a blog hop party that I hope you will all join.  Oh yah.....I've been working on another big project also.   So as soon as I head to Ikea, and finish the top secret task, I will post about it!
