Ignore the crap plied around the tree, but look at this giant oak tree! It must be 300 years old! I’ll get a better picture when I move stuff, just wanted to show y’all this awesome tree.

Hope to hear soon that you have closed and are loading up fencing materials to start the work on your new place. Too bad that it is starting to get really hot back there now just in time for the move.

Nice grass for the sheep. Just think about soon 22 acres of that nice fresh grass. Invest in a couple more sections of electro net and you can make use of the unfenced portions of your grassy new property sooner. ;)

I went tile shopping today. There is no backsplash in the kitchen, just sheetrock. The granite countertop is muckledy black, gray and white. Personally I think it’s fugly. The cabinets are cherry and look elegant, but I wouldn’t have them. I took a piece of the fugly granite with me to hold up to tile samples. I sent DS pictures (he is on a job in Kentucky) and we settled on a glass tile. I went to several places, even sending him pictures of a peel and stick vinyl backsplash that I could put up myself for about $150-$200. We settled on this.

It will cost $1550 for tile and labor. I’ll call tomorrow and order it, will take 3 weeks to get it in.
Here’s a shot of the cabinet and counter. It’s real nice, just not my style.

Electrician came this evening. The wall outlets are set too deep in the wall in the backsplash, and need to be brought forward. Need to put up a vent a hood, he can run the wire and install, can probably get Chris to run pipe up and out the roof. The wires to the 2 wall ovens are stapled to the outside wall, need to take down soffit and run wires through there, put soffit back up.

Nice tile to offset the ...as @B&B Happy goats said.."busy countertop"... I have to agree, fugly, but I like the contrast. It would drive me insane looking at that. Tile will offset it well; maybe even "calm it down" a little.
Cabinets not my style either and too nice for that "type" of house... but oh well.... they do the job.

It's getting there. Any news on a closing date for the farm????

NO! I'm not putting up the tile myself. Never have done tile, while I wouldn't mind learning, I hope to be mired up to my eyeballs on my own place by the time this tile comes in. :lol: Who knows? I may give that double wide a kitchen make over some day. But no time soon.

Yes the granite is fugly and way too busy. I hope this tile calms it down somewhat. The name of that tile pattern in actually called "Calm" :gig:gig:gig

No closing date yet. This is driving me nucking futs.
