A flurry of activity!
After the holiday weekend, Super Bill seems to be riding the crew to get stuff done. Cabinets and flooring were delivered last week, so the past few days have been all about assembling and placing the cabinets. What a difference! The rooms are feeling more like living spaces, not just empty boxes. The plan is to get them all installed by Tuesday, so flooring can go in on Wednesday.
None of the cabinets or floors are stained yet. Like the paint, they go on very late in the process to hide up any scratches that might happen during the last few months of work. Grouting of all tile is done, except for the bar floor. Due to the uneven nature of the brick floor, they want cabinets installed on top of brick then grout will help fill in the gaps to secure it in place and help hide imperfections in the floor.
The first coat of stucco is almost complete, which is very cool. It’s like the skeleton (frame) was covered by the nerves, vessels and organs (wiring, plumbing, duct work and
), and now the muscle layer is in place. A few more layers and the color will go on!
They poured the front porch, steps and pergola base this week. So cool to see the front of the house having a little definition besides mud. Looking forward to a cocktail under the pergola in about 3 months!
