shopping shopping shopping

It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. I've been working hard honing my bargain-shopping skills.
A nearby Rona is closing and I've made some very good finds there: a $350-dollar kitchen sink for $88; a bathtub for $45.
Kim got into the act & did some hard bargaining. He likes the look of real stone, and always admires the very expensive travertine & limestone whenever we go into tile stores. Too bad it's so far out of our budget range we couldn't even consider it. Until now - Kim talked the Rona manager into bringing the price of some ivory tumbled travertine tiles down into a reasonable range as long as we took the whole works. The store's been pretty ransacked so I spent a good part of that Sunday afternoon gathering, sorting & counting tiles and filling boxes to make up whole packs that we could buy. Looks like we have enough to do our master ensuite.
Can't wait to have a bubble bath in my new bathroom.

We'll be able to see who's at the front door from our 2nd floor hallway window.

Back of the house. The deck opens off our master bedroom. It'll be my new spot to have a cup of tea in the morning sunshine.

Here's the rooftop sheathed.
