Super Bill warned me not to go in, but I couldn’t resist. I had to see the cabinetry being stained. It was so pretty! And the pink elephants I was seeing after I spent 10 minutes in the polyurethane dome agreed with me.
So the deck is up, too, including the railings. We chose ipe wood rather than cedar. It’s super pretty and durable. It will fade to silver like cedar, but at least I won’t get a thousand splinters on my bare feet!
The stone is set for the fireplace, and we have decided to put a sealant on it to intensify the color and sparkle. They also made progress on the outside. All the “lookouts” are in (wood details under the eaves). And remember those old bricks from the previous building? We’ve cut some in half and have placed them decoratively on the outside and the house is showing such personality! Today I met with Wendy from BrushMasters and we finalized outdoor stain choices. I think we finally are done with all those choices!
Also met today with Water Doctors, about water purification. Not sexy, but hey: don’t want rust-colored laundry or eggy-smelling drinking water. Monday hopefully I will a preliminary landscaping plan. They removed trees this week which is sad, but needed. They also decapitated (there really is no other word) my Magnolia tree. Super Bill reassures me it is for the trees good. It better be, or me and the pink elephants are coming after him!
