Bamboo Flooring

The bamboo flooring is being installed and should be finished within the next day or two. Appliances and furniture have been ordered, interior lights and fans have been installed, and a host of other final touches continue to be worked on.

We have a working elevator! This will be a tremendous help for hauling materials to the third floor to complete the kitchen and flooring, and will come in handy on move-in and move-out days.

Lighting Fixtures

What an ordeal! Trying to decide on lighting fixtures has been much tougher than either one of us anticipated. Have you ever looked at a lighting catalog? The lighting manufacturers are cutting down forests to create these 800 page beasts. They make the phone book look like a Dick & Jane book. We still have the hallway sconces to decide on, but the rest of the selections are attached. I'm actually looking forward to painting this weekend so I don't have to think about lighting!!

Bathroom Tile

The tile contractors have finished the bathrooms and work continues on painting, electrical, HVAC, flooring and many other items. Carolee and I are heading back down on MLK weekend for another round of painting!

Happy New Year!

During our painting trip this week we enjoyed warm weather (upper 60's) and clear, starry nights! This is the latest picture of the exterior. Carolee and I will head down in a couple of weeks to potentially do some more painting. We are really looking forward to finishing the house in the next couple of months.
