I drove down to The Container Store today to check out their closet shelving solutions for the kids' bedroom closets. A couple of days ago, I had looked at the ClosetMaid products at Home Depot, but they were too flimsy and cheap. The elfa system from The Container Store is about twice as expensive as ClosetMaid, but the quality is about 10 times better.

Back at the job site, Leonard from J B Ornamental Iron removed the railing from the balcony. He's going to redo the railing and make it about seven inches taller.

Phil's crew from Tercero Painting was spraying primer in the eaves. The weather is supposed to be nice for the next several days -- Brad said they'll be painting the exterior tomorrow.

Troy is almost done with all the molding on the first floor. He started installing the wood for the wainscot in the dining room today.

When he's finished with the wainscot, he also has to build the fireplace mantle and install the exterior columns.

The tile installers were continuing their work in bath #2 and bath #3. And they started applying the grout in bath #1 and in the laundry room.

Here are some pictures of the colors we've chosen. We're still finalizing exactly which color goes in which room or on which accent wall. But at least the colors have been chosen!

We met with Brad at the job site this afternoon. We talked about the downspout for the roof over the back patio and decided to use the chain.

Then we used spray paint to mark a possible driveway and walkway design. Brad thinks there's too much hardscape. He gave us the name of a landscape architect so we'll probably give him a call and have him help us with the design.

After our meeting with Brad, I picked up the Warm Tile Floor material from Quality Discount Tile.
