We’re slowly working through the trim - creating it, preparing it and attaching it. As we get more installed, the house looks more and more finished. Mirrors are all installed in the baths and the fellow that did those is going to set at least three of the shower enclosures. At $200 each I think it was a great deal. And they are the big ones with large sheets of glass. He got the master done yesterday. Will hopefully come back after the holiday for the other two. It took him and his two sons a lot longer than I think they thought, but the barn door hardware was new to them so it included a lot of learning so the others will go a lot quicker. When he’s done with those, I’ll talk to him about the other four. They will be easy for me to set, but again, we have plenty to do and the price is very reasonable.
I was able to get the remaining glass extricated from the crates and set into the baths it goes in, so I can get those out of the garage and give us some more room. Yea!
Outdoor fireplace was shipped this week. It should be here by Tuesday. I’ll begin framing for it tomorrow so it’ll be ready to install when it gets here. Nights here get cold, it was 34F this morning, so it will be nice to have up and running as soon as we can get it in and finished. The exterior will be rock, and hopefully we still have enough left from the house.
In addition to sanding, weathering and lacquering the trim, Sandra has started on the rest of the interior doors that have now all been set. That’ll take a couple weeks but should prepare us to get the final CO. Yea!
And I have gotten the window well window wrapped in lath and put on the scratch coat of stucco. It needs to sit for a couple weeks before the next (brown coat), which then needs to sit before the color coat. But by the end of the month it’ll be done.
