Lanai Update

We're reaching another milestone.....the lanai, the livingroom extension, is practically complete! This past week David completed getting the floor tile laid and grouted. It looks super. The lanai room is rather narrow but the small tiles make it appear roomier. And the color goes along with the livingroom toes quite nicely. It turned out to be a good choice, something were not noted for in our lives. 
I scrubbed and applied the first sealing coat, which made the tiles shine. Oh, if they'd only stay this way......without work of course. I'm not much of a housekeeper, preferring to be outdoors all day. 

Anyway.....there is a bit of trim work to be done plus the door sills to create. Otherwise, we have another room completed. 
Even the ceiling is done. Whoopie! Covering the ceiling 2x6s in a thin sheathing then painting them turn out well. Again, just a bit of trim to put up. 
I'm really glad we decided to cover the 2x6s. It wasn't all that much work or expense, but it gave a much nicer finish to the room. Now it looks like a room rather than an enclosed lanai. 

Next on the house list:
...the hallway. The hall was totally open when we purchased the place. Just a walkway under the lip of the roof between the two buildings. We've since walled it in and installed windows. Now it's time to finish it. It will be a bit of a challenge because of the odd angles and sloping ceiling.
