Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Hard Core Remodeling but Were Afraid to Ask! Update

  Okay, what's going on with the
Life in Rehab Disability-Friendly Remodel?
Before we get on with
 Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Hard Core Remodeling but Were Afraid to Ask!
we should recap.
Just as a brief reminder, this is our BEFORE.
Adobe Sunset paint, rough cedar trim, hideous built in bookcases,
and mismatched, broken tile floors were the basis for our gutting the house.
 And gut we did.
 Then we gutted some more...
 ...until there was no ugly left.
 We eventually got here.
 Now, I can't grab this...
 ...and paint these...
 ...until we finish this, so let's take a look at how much more we have to do.
 The new stairs into the living room are in.
 We grabbed some glossy varnish...
 ...and sealed the butcher block countertops.
 Then we stained and varnished the stairs.
 Notice, they match the bamboo flooring nicely.
Mark has some chunky moulding to set off the whole thing,
making it look substantial.
Friday, I'll have it all painted.
The beadboard ceiling is up, covering the cedar beams completely.
 The last choice to be made was the guest room paint.
 Mom waffled a bit.
 Pancaked a while.
 French toasted once or twice.
We just couldn't find the perfect shade to match the rest of the house.
And then, it occurred to us....
Maybe the perfect shade was already IN the house.
Yep, we're using the dark aqua, the same shade that accents
 the bathroom and brightens the laundry room.
The guest room is dark, so this shade will light it right up.
 The custom medallion in the master shower is done too.
Today, I'll get all the subway tile up.
Are you ready to watch that fiasco?
Stop hyperventilating!
 Here, baby ducks.
You can't hyperventilate around baby ducks. 
Now calm down.

I've missed so much! It looks amazing, hardly recognizable from that first walk through!
