In my kitchen I wanted a large farm house (apron front sink). When looking in Tuscaloosa, I found them to be around $1000 for the one I wanted. That was definately out of my price range so I began researching online. I found the exact sink I wanted on ebay directly from the manufacturer for $300.00! Forgive me, but I do not remember the name, but this company was in California. Anyhow, ordering was simple and shipping a breeze. So pumped about the little things!
I have always wanted a free-standing pedistal tub. When pricing at kitchen and bath show rooms in Northport and Tuscaloosa, I found them to be very expensive. I decided to research online and I found you can order straight from the manufacturer and save a ton of money! After researching for what seemed like months, I found a 72 inch acryllic pedistal tub and supplies in oil rubbed bronze from Vintage Tub and Bath (http://www.vintagetubandbath.com/) there prices were perfect and delivery was easy. I highly recommend them!
Yes, we finally have walls in our house. The sheetrock is up, mudded, and sanded. The ceiling has been painted and Brent, the kids and I are starting to paint. Everything looks great. Brent thinks we will be closing in May, but I still think June!
