ode to blue tape

Okay...I didn't really write an ode, but I was looking at my recent posts and there's a theme of blue tape. Blue tape is the builder's post-it. I will know the house is complete when there is no trace of blue anywhere. Typically it's used as masking for painting, but Neil has also used it here to mark where the recessed medicine cabinet will go. In other places it designates where a bit of touch-up paint is needed.

The bathroom counter was finally installed yesterday. That was a mishap that threw us a week off schedule. Even though the counter people had the sink and faucet, they still miscalculated and drilled the hole of the faucet too close to the sink. Oh well...they redid it and it looks fabulous.

Here blue is holding the mirror in place as the glue dries.

Not the best picture, but Neil installed our blinds in the skylights. Next up is ordering the blinds for the rest of the windows.
