Stage 3 – Finish Work Begins

Yep, we’ve made it to the third stage of the construction — finish work.  Yipee!  Siding is almost complete on the exterior and tiling has started in the master shower.  Our tile guys are very meticulous.  There have been two guys out here for at least 3 days. Maybe it’s the size of the shower – a little large? Who’s going to clean all that white tile?

Time flies….

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I last posted.  Things have really been hopping lately at the house.  I’m having difficulty keeping up on the recent decisions we’re finalizing and on updating the blog…as you can see.  Here’s a quick recap of things that have been going on since the start of new year.  The texture (“old world”) is on all the walls, the walls have been primed for paint, the siding (hardie board) is beginning to go up on the exterior, the cabinets started getting installed today, shower niches were cut today, and the interior doors were hung.  Whew!!  Everything is really taking shape and all the finish details will begin to show themselves.  Gotta finalize what we’re going to do for countertops on the island, hutch and desk.  We’re thinking something like black walnut but wondering if it’s too much wood with the hardwood floors going in too.  hmmmmm
