Full speed ahead...

Drywall is essentially complete - didn't the arches (there are three) turn out great! John and I have hired a painter to help us with the wall/ceiling priming. We'll be painting until we drop this Saturday - anyone out there want to help? The hardwood floor installation will begin next week, so we need to have the priming finished prior.

Copper detail added to roof.

Mike is priming the exterior trim that will be used to patch the areas impacted by the new window installation in the existing house. It will be good to see this looking more finished.

The new cedar siding is at the mill. There was a problem with the original knife, so a new one had to be created. Hopefully, this material will run soon. It will still need to be primed before it goes up.

The hardy board siding for the garage has been delivered. Mike has it in the pipeline and will, hopefully, start putting it up next week.

The kitchen, bathroom, and mudroom cabinets are in production. I am hoping to visit the shop next week to see the progress.

The stainless steel range hood was delivered today! So exciting to start seeing "finishing" materials showing up.

We have made our tile selections. This work will begin next week as well. The hardwood floor guys will work simultaneously with the tile installer. We chose one inch, white hex tiles for all three bathroom floors. The master tub & shower will be honed Carrara marble. And the mudroom is a tumbled white marble.

We made our interior/exterior door selections - the big debate wood vs. MDF. In the end we went with the high-end Bolection MDF interior doors, fiberglass for the walk through garage doors, and a stainable side entry door. We love the authenticity of wood, but in the end, we prefer doors that won't split, swell, warp over time. I think we'll be happy with our decision, especially since they will arrive PRIMED. We're putting old crystal knobs on, so this should offer some of that vintage look.
