A Realtor stopped by the other night to look at what we had done to the house, solely out of curiosity. Afterward, he commented something to the idea that all there was left was a lot of trim to finish. Now after working on this project for nearly a year a half and and having already put in nearly a mile of trim - just what was he talking about?! Doesn't he see we are nearly done?
Well, I learned in the past few days that there is a fair amount of trim to get finished after all. Crown molding on the cabinets, consisting of a stack of three separate pieces, quarter round around the cabinets, baseboard in the kitchen now that cabinets were set, crown in the den as I have started to build the bookshelves. We should have it pretty well wrapped up this week having gotten most done the past few days.
We hung a mirror in the lower bath today that weighed about 150 pounds with the frame. Used a French cleat to hang it as wire would not have held. With that up I can hook up the sink and call in for a final plumbing inspection. Have a couple receptacles in the bookcases and then can call for final electrical.
So we are making good progress and are still looking at getting done around Thanksgiving.
