Getting closer to moving hopefully MARCH 2018. The fireplace mantle is a railroad tie I pressure washed and stainedit with rose flame oil. Drove the spikes and polished . Door is trimmed out in red oak it was a first for our builder we loved it, my wife and I stained it and sealed. The ceiling is the kitchen .

Door before finish and entrance to house. Next big thing is counter tops. We like granite but we are also looking at quartz. Any suggestions?

Looking good,I like the door and ceiling.We are working on pricing for a new house to be built on or property right now and most people we've talked to recommend the quartz.I don't know if it's true or not but they say it's more durable and less likely to stain.

The most stain resistant natural countertop is soap stone but it has a more "country" look. Our's has worn like iron. It is softer, but can be sanded. We have never had any damage so I have not tried sanding it.

Got another question. We need a 36 inch gas stove and I have found those to be a expensive item, does anyone have any recommendations on what brand or product. I'm looking heavily at a THOR brand.Also some ventless gas logs for the upstairs fire place.

We had bad luck with a Viking stove due to the burner ignitors continually malfunctioning. Never could get them fixed. Be careful that Thor does not have the same issue (read reviews). I just found the same complaints for Thor. I checked to see if this brand might be a good replacement brand for me.

We had Vikings at most of the fire stations, and those ignitors never worked either.

Cool place Mobley. I saw your question about quartz/granite. We happen to have both in our kitchen and like them both for different reason. We have quartz on our counters and a contrasting granite on an island and on a built in desk. I had asked for white marble for the counters, but a friend of mine does most of the stone in houses around my community and he told me that he always tries to talk clients out of marble. I know that's not what you asked about, but he really likes quartz because of it's easy maintenance and stain-resistance. That has been my experience with it too. I was also told to keep hot pans off of it or it can discolor. The only thing that bothers me (and probably no one else) is that it is still a manufactured product so from 10' ft it looks like natural rock (marble), but from 2' I can still see pixelation (for lack of a better term) in the product. Mine is white with fine sand-sized aggregates which make the patterns. Looks great, but when I'm standing over it I'm reminded that it's not natural stone. Like I said, I'm probably the only one who notices or thinks about it.

The granite on our other areas is beautiful and I love the look of it, but it does require a little more maintenance. Pros and cons with both, but both are overall great.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the responses. I'm really looking at the stoves and counter tops this week hoping to make some decisions on them by Friday. I seen the reviews on Thor but it seems like each brand has there own issues. I believe I could hook up a gas furnace igniter to each element an allow a gas furnace controll board to work the flame sensor. I don't know just seems like I could save a few thousand dollars and fix the manufacturer's problems myself.

Got a stove its a Kitchenaid seems like a good stove it is dual fuel. Cabinets are getting close to finished. The lights are gas lights from Belvelo they don't make much light but we really like them. The wife added the finishing touch to the shower. Also sold my 2004 IHI mine excavator and bought the 35vx. I had excellent results from the IHI and went with a larger one this time. It's has the hydraulic thumb where the last one had a manual thumb. This on has a Yanmar 3 cylinder the last one has an Isuzu. Hope it is just as good as the old one.
