Its been a busy year to say the least. Insulation was installed and the drywall has been installed, inspected and taped and textured. It really looks like a house now!
We had the drywall sprayed with "First Coat" before the texture was applied. This applies a coat of basically thinned-down drywall mud to the entire surface so that the primer and paint will adhere evenly to the surface. If you just prime over the texture you'll see the tape joints "telegraph" through since the drywall mud absorbs more than the drywall paper. It was a cheap investment (less than $200) and well worth the effort.
The primer will be sprayed next week, and then we'll be painting the rooms the following weekend. I can't wait to finally get some color on the walls!
We've been ordering our light fixtures over the last few months and have most of them. The dining room fixture is custom made by Hubbardton Forge (vtforge.com), and is just a piece of art if you ask me. Very unique. I can tell you that as an architect. I've never seen anything like it before, and the quality is unmatched.
