Well finished as far as installed. I put the final pieces up on Monday after we returned from a Thanksgiving trip. Still have the nail holes to do, but a big job out of the way!
Also put up much of the remainder of baseboard before I ran out. All of the fourth floor is finished having taken care of a couple small pieces and Sandra’s office. All of the bullnose corner pieces throughout the house are installed as well. Some slight trimming and subsequent touch up of the stain will be necessary but at least those buggers are cut and in. Other floors have a few pieces of base to install, mainly in closets and that’ll be finished.
The nosings for the landings are in, and that went well. Actually have gotten the flooring for two of the six landings installed before running out of wood so we made a trip to Santa Fe yesterday to get the rest. That’ll have to be sanded and stained so hopefully this weekend it’ll be ready and I can get that finished.
As far as the glass partion wall, that is still an issue. I’ve decided that a patio door system and taking off the bottom track will be best, but trying to find someone to custom make one and not have then install in a manner not like everything else they do is impossible. So I’ve contacted the local glass guy again and asked him to source and install per my idea. Hopefully he can come by in the next couple days to measure.
Sandra made a punch list for the fourth floor. Only things missing are barn door guides and connections to Cat 5e and coax. Not a bad list! I’m thinking this’ll be similar for all the other floors. So I feel pretty good about where we stand.
