|All doors through-out are a classic six-panel with round door knobs (excepting villa #1's choice in aluminum bathroom doors.. and some Ventian-style mirror-finished doors in villa #2 which I may still switch out since I think they are too breakable)|

...and my other neighbor, while he doesn't seem to be a jerk, is one of those people who my husband would define as nosy, although maybe he's a nice guy, I am a nosy person too, so I don't know. My husband doesn't seem to like anyone in the neighborhood that much beyond the goat that lives next door. We let our daughter visit him.
The first floor is almost done walls-wise, and plumbing changes (I told them I do not want, anywhere in the house but in sink and bathtub/shower drains---an unlevel floor with floortraps for plumbing.) I had to sign a paper with the engineering consultancy and construction company to say this is my request not something I can sue them for forgetting later. Only my laundry room has a floor drain/trap and a sloped floor for drainage. I do not throw mounds or buckets of water on my floors and I mop of up any water on the bathroom floors with towels and bathmats... I cannot stand ever-wet bathroom floors! That is one of the banes of living in Oman my own house has to be without!

I also ordered the kitchen cabinetry and appliances, which is very exciting, and now I also have some beautiful doorknobs from Canada (how I miss Home Depot) and the description of wooden stair-railing prices made me cry (just joking). I wanted these doorknobs because nothing sucks more than running around a house and getting your abaya/jablabiyia sleeve stuck on the door handle (which happens a lot here). Plus Schlage is a brand I trust.

Villa # 3 is a pale blue colour in the majlis al hareem, and both the men's maglis and the living room are white with wood touches, and reds---like the diawaan club sitting area room I said I liked before.
