Work on the house slowed down a bit the last couple of days as a snowstorm swept through  the area, dumping about 7 inches of fresh snow on the land. This is the first significant snowfall we've had in this area this winter. Although this area has fairly moderate winters, the lack of snowfall this year is a little unusual. Fortunately, the few mild days we had before the snow came allowed the masons to do a little more work on the exterior brick. At this point, they have the entire back of the house completed except for part of one column. Once the snow started falling, they moved to the inside of the house to start the brick work on the great room fireplace.

While the masons were busy working on the fireplace, I began work on the crown moulding that will run throughout the house. I have hired a trim carpenter to do the base moulding and the casing around the doors and the windows, but I have reserved the more detailed trim work like the crown and raised panel moulding for myself. Partly because I can save a significant amount of money doing it myself, but also I have a significant amount of experience installing trim moulding, and I am confident in my abilities to do a good job. On another note, the tile contractor will be starting on the tile work tomorrow, and hopefully, have all the tile work in the bathrooms and laundry completed within the next two weeks.
