Kenmore Elite Appliances

By: | Tags: | Comments: 6

Today Stefan and I went to Sears and picked out our appliances for the kitchen. We went with the Kenmore Elite line in stainless steel and bought our refridgerator, stove, microwave/hood and dishwasher. We really were trying to NOT go with stainless steel, but the only stove that Stefan wanted only came in stainless, sooooooo....Cie la vie. I

Guest Bath Delay

Today, Gino was going to finish up the tile work in the guest bath. Unfortunately, when the drywall was put in around the sink area, instead of moving one of the pipes...the guys just screwed the greenboard in over the pipe causing it to bubble out. If we had done regular tile instead of butt joints, Gino would

Gino is coming tomorrow to finish the guest bath with the walnut/Tuscany colored travertine. We ended up needing 190 tiles instead of 160...but Paradise Ceramics in Aguada had us covered when we went to buy more...so no worries. Once the tile is all set, we are going to run a champagne unsanded grout over it all to seal

I made it down to Puerto Rico, yesterday and I'm SO happy to be home :). It really is impressive to see the amount of work that has been completed since I've been gone. The dogs were especially happy to see me. I think they were wondering what the hell happened to me and how the heck they

When i spoke with Summer last night, she went over a list of things I should look out for with Kuta down here in Puerto Rico that I may not have noticed in California (due to lack of weather systems and construction). The first thing she said was to be careful with the dogs and the hole in

The Dogs are in Puerto Rico

We left Rincon around 6:30pm last night to get to the airport early just in case anything came up. FYI: Don't try to pick up your dogs at the terminal...they are transported from the terminal to the Continental Cargo Depot which is in Carolina. A not so great area to get lost in...eventually we found the Cargo Depot...waited

I just got back from dropping off Kuta and Monkey (our dogs) at the airport. Today they are making their permanent move to Puerto Rico! Their flight left at 9:22am out of San Diego and arrives at 9:30pm in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I'm nervous! Neither of them have flown before, but they seemed to be doing okay

To Do List Today

By: | Tags: | Comments: 3

Today is going to be a tough day (but not in the manual labor sense of the word "tough"). When the tile guy started installing the tile he thought the shower hardware may need to come out from the wall a bit more in order to properly fit the trim. He measured it and said we were going
