I want to thank Justin and Michael for sharing with me their project details, which helped me organize my project as well. And of course thanks to Elaine and Mark, none of us would have been networked to share info with one another without their efforts. Thanks, guys!

We continue to make progree on the trim.  The door casing should be finished by the end of the weekend with only the crown moilding portion left to finish.  That won’t be done until we after get a final inspection, as we are working hard to get the required things done to get that. Those things include all of the normal trim, exterior thresholds and top rails on the deck railings. 


I’ll head to big blue today for redwood 2x6 lumber to make those top rails.  Sandra has also been preparing several live edge planks that will also be used for top rails where we want to have more of a gathering place on the decks.  The live edge rails will allow room for drinks to be set down in a more attractive setting.  

The railing for the retaining wall is up, the stucco work an the retaining wall and in the window well is finished.

I’ve finally decided to use the stone we used for window sills for the thresholds and have a plan on how to attach them.  I need to find out if they are in stock at any of the local (3 hour drive local) yards.

The 3rd floor outdoor patio space is finished with the addition of a great coffee table that Sandra made.  It’s been wonderful to sit out there in the evenings watching the sunset and the fireplace.  I’ve ordered a radiant heater to add warmth. The fireplace puts out quite a bit, but if the wind is blowing, it doesn’t get far.  The 9’ long radiant unit will hang from the beam and provide significant additional warmth.

All of the bedrooms have been finished, complete with beds and bedding.  We had recently received the last two log beds we had ordered.  They were a bear to get in the house. The crate they arrived in weighed almost 900 lbs with the pallet. The headboards alone weighed about 200 lbs each.  As with everything else bulky or heavy, the beds were loaded on the Skytrak and lifted up.  But from there we had to stand the head and foot boards on furniture dollies to move to the respective bedrooms.  Crazy, but there are in and look great.

Guest level living area. Waiting on stone for the fireplace. But based on the outdoor one we just finished, it should take a day or two only to install the stone here
