The radio silence around here was due to the fact that we had a snafu in the renovation. First the City of Portland made us stop work due to a rogue inspector who thought we had taken down a load bearing wall. Then Christmas was a bit busier than usual for us this year. We took a trip with the whole family to Sunriver, Oregon about a week before Christmas, and then Ben's family came to visit us for a week and a half. So fun!
First a few photos from the family visit.

|Tiling progress on bathroom wall. We are leaving this work to the professionals, and I'm so glad. Ben and I found this pattern online, and I ran around for days trying to find a tile manufacturer that would make these. They're hand made in Portland!|
