Walk on Marble

We're getting new white marble added to the floor in our guest bathroom.   The counter tops will be added later this week. We bought our 1980 house in 2008 (it was the newest house we could afford in our 'hood) and every year we have a project to update the house without disrespecting its roots.   We ripped out the dated 1990 tile, and we're adding 18-inch square marble tiles.  Marble makes the normal bathroom feel special.

Often times I wonder what it'd be like to purchase a new house with all new elements.  Would we save more money if we had a new house?  Each year, we spend several thousand dollars updating our house to make it current.

However, I love that we get to make it our own.
