15 Panel Door, Tile and a nice surprise!!!

I met with PM yesterday to walk through the house but this was quickly nixed as they were spray painting the entire inside of the house. But we were able to have a nice little chat about the progress with the house and what the progression of events would look like over the next few weeks. Now that the house has been painted he said that I would see tile in the upstairs bathrooms and laundry room. Granite may be going in by the end of the week!

Since I wasn't able to go into the house yesterday you know that I stopped by today not expecting much but finding that there had been A LOT happening. Our non standard request of having a 15 panel door in the study was delivered and oil rubbed bronze handles were installed on doors throughout the house. But the most exciting part of my visit today came when I went upstairs and found that all my tile had been installed! When I saw the master bathroom I had to do a little happy dance as the tile went above the shower head. Bonus points for my PM on that one! We had read a couple of blogs where adding tile above the shower head was either an upgrade or a non standard request. But as you can imagine, we figured out that we REALLY wanted this after the change request deadline had expired. In one of our many conversations with PM we mentioned this. He never made any promises but said that of we could get the extra tile from the flooring company that he would have it put in. Well, we were never able to get that so I thought that this was an option that would be just a woulda shoulda coulda kind of thing. As I write this I am still thrilled to my toes! Thanks PM!

Beatiful Suprise!!! YAY for my PM!

Guest bathroom...not to great of light since it was already starting to get dark when I went...it still needs to be grouted

Laundry Room...still needs grout

Door handle...oil rubbed bronze...an upgrade but one that is in most models

Our non standard request...for the study


  1. Everything looks great! How nice that the PM came through with the extra tile!

  2. I know! It is so great to get those kind of suprises as opposed to the blooper suprises that you DON'T want to see.

    1. I think so too! I can't wait to hear how your walk through went!

  4. Fun pics! Do you have a post that lists all your colors... what tile that is and such?

    1. I sure do! Its under 2012/September/COLORS and it has a pic of all the options but here are the names of them:

      Brixton Sand 12x12 with White Glaze and White FA51 Listello in Guest Bathroom with the Scottsdale maple
      Brixton Sand 12x12 in Laundry Room
      Stratford Place- Willow Branch 12x12 (Floor) and 10x14 (Wall) with SA54 Wisteria/Tortoise Blend Accent Listello in the Owners Bath. Also added the PS Durango Bullnose 8" corner shelf set (Don't forget about this option or you will get standard white!). The cabinets are the Wyoming cherry square bordeaux

  5. Hi Abby -- we are building a Rome just outside of Charlotte, NC and were quoted $1,100 for the 15-panel door. Do you mind sharing how much RH charged you for you NS 15-panel door?
