Hello All, great website and forum. I really appreciate everyone's help. A little about myself... I have been planning for years as to what I want in a custom home. I just recently got very serious about it. I really look forward to joining your ranks as an O-B.

The granite guys came back yesterday and finally finished the last two shower curbs.  With that I can get a full set of exact measurements and order the glass.  It’ll take about a month to receive it here.  


The beams we received camestained in a shade that did not fit anything we had going on. Instead of a walnut, they came in a very reddish brown.  Sandra sanded and redid with something that should be a better fit and once fully dry we’ll try to get them up next week.  Although hollow, they are still pretty heavy, and almost 30’ long once assembled together.  I’ll need some help for this job.

The past couple days I’ve slowed on the stairs as Sandra stains and lacquers the handrails and I wait for some deburring bits to clean up the welds.  Instead, got back on the kitchen to install cabinet lighting (LED strips) and get down the HORRIBLE business of running the crown moulding - a job I absolutely hate, especially when it’s as large as this - 6”, and there are so many changes in direction.  But it’s finally finished and sets off the cabinets well.  Today’s chore is to install the support legs on both islands for the overhang on each.  Included with that is a piece of angle iron along the length of the overhang to eliminate having to add a third leg in the middle.  The angle will hang from the top of the leg, being recessed to sit flush.  A piece of trim will then be glued to the angle to hide it.  Shouldn't’ be a hard job, but will take some time.  

Also need to trim the door frames on fourth floor doors so we can take them up and set them in place and Sandra can use the wood treatment on them.  All in all, a full days work ahead of me.
