Vanities, Tile and the Copper Roof

The vanities are done but we're still waiting for the kitchen cabinets.
The vanity for the master bath is walnut, which matches the newel posts.  The medicine cabinets are wrapped up and the small mirror which will go between them is laying on top.
The other vanity and the kitchen cabinets will have a painted finish.

I drove up to New Hampshire to pick up our tile at Trikeenan's factory.
It's in a nice spot in an old mill building overlooking a dam and covered bridge on the Ashuelot River.  I've heard that the purpose of the roof was to strenghten the bridge, like a box beam, and to protect the bridge elements from the weather.

We were ready to have the copper roof installed over the porch but, even though the roof is relatively small, the prices were quite high.  I guess copper prices are going up again.  We decided to use shingles instead.  We'll still have a copper gutter and downspout, though.
