Porch Tile Completed!

WOW, just in the nick of time, too! A few minutes before Happy Hour last night, we moved all the furniture back onto the porch.

Just as promised Rich and his son Eli showed up early Monday morning to finish up our Porch tile job. Here they are doing the grouting.

Furniture all back in. Wow, what a difference! Just what this place needed to give it a more homey, finished look. This picture is taken looking out towards the street. We are so glad to have this job completed. We wanted Gina to pass approval on the Tile we purchased but she has been extremely busy the last few weeks. She is an excellent color coordinator and decorator.  She had a hand in choosing everything in this place. We think she will like it and can’t wait for her to see it.  Also, our good friend Dale Bruss was visiting us last year when we were purchasing stuff for the new house and she helped us a lot, too.  Dale was an Interior Decorator in her former life.  What do you think, Gina and Dale??

The love seat is back in it's usual place but it looks a lot better than it did on the bare concrete……

This is a replica statue of Ms. Megabyte2 that Gina bought for us…I just love it. She even painted a little black spot on it’s nose just like Megabyte2 has. The poor, real Ms. Megabyte2 was so upset because she couldn’t come out on “her” porch all weekend. She just couldn’t understand that…

But yesterday afternoon she got to come back out and enjoy it. She loves this porch just as much as we do. Last night, even after it got dark, she didn’t want to come back in the house.

So, another “project” completed here at North Ranch.

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  God Bless You all and safe travels to our traveling friends.

The new tile job looks terrific, the boys did a great job. Your decorators did a splendid job as well, everything matches and blends with the tile. You and Mrs Pat must be so happy with your new home.

Wow, that looks soooo nice. Great job. It creates a very nice space.

Yes, it does look great, and all you two had to do was buy the tile and leave town for a week! That's real friends for you. I'm sure Gina will be just as pleased as you are with the finished project -- and we can hardly wait to see it! Looks like we'll be in your neck of the woods somewhere near April 19-20.

Well, I'm not Gina and I'm not Dale but I think your tile looks great. :-) Looks like a nice place to relax and enjoy life!!

Its almost not a porch anymore, looks more like the dining room of the house! We are sure you will enjoy it to the hilt! You may not want to go back to SD! But it might get a tad hot in Az if you don't, LOL
