Paint, Paint, Paint

That’s what has been happening over the last week and a half.  There has been a crew in the house working on all the trim and ceilings.  They have been priming, filling, sanding, and painting for several days now.  The final coat has turned out beautiful.  Yesterday they were pefecting the ceilings.  Seems they will be coming in this weekend to work on and complete the walls.  Here comes the color!! I can’t wait.  I made decisions about most of the rooms but they’ll be painting a few swatches here and there for me to confirm still.  Everything is so white right now and covered up (floors, counters, cabinets) that pictures just aren’t that helpful for anyone to see the progress.  I’m sure by Sunday late afternoon I’ll have some great pictures of color on the walls to share with everyone.

Next items coming up include: brickwork outside and around living room fireplace, laying the hardwood floors, reorder the pantry swinging doors (another door issue), and reorder the staircase newels that I thought were too skinny.

So much going on…where do I start?

Wow!  We’ve (the construction workers actually) have been so busy the past couple of weeks.  The finish work in the house is about 98% complete and it looks great!  The door and window trim make everything look so tied together and complete.  Stairs are starting to go in, the blue slate is down in the entryway and mudroom, countertops went in on Friday, and the bathroom tile is about done.  Most of these things are all protected with heavy brown paper so not much to show you right now. They even hauled the big tub upstairs. 

Painting is starting this week and they are bringing in the hardwood floors to acclimate before laying those down the next week or two.  Mantels are being built and brickwork should start outside soon. We’ll confirm with our project manager this week but we’re actually thinking we might be back in the house by the end of April.  OMG!
