Man you should have seen those guys lifting the slabs. I took pitty and grabbed one of John’s boys and joined the struggle to get the island into the house. Hey if they drop im off schedule and besides they were getting tired! It looks awesome. Tile guy will be tiling the master bath on monday and the marble is in around the tub. It looks amazing! There is a nice shot of the purple room as well.

Soon after moving in the family started wrecking the place! Elaine and Jessy painted her room.

Madeline has been holding a vigal to ensure no one encroaches on her room and dot took her now infamous walk of fame in the master bath.
