Tiling Finished, Some Painting, & Stair Work Has Begun

The tiling in the bathrooms was finished yesterday. The grout has such a dramatic effect on the final look.

The bedrooms on the other side of the master have one coat of paint on them. We did the same color in both rooms. The color name is Powell Buff from Benjamin Moore. Inside of all closets, we are doing a neutral color, Manchester Tan

The stair guy showed up and started work yesterday. He has a pile of treads he has started working on and installed one post at the top of the stairs.

Deck Framed

The deck has been framed, but does not have any stairs, decking, or posts yet. Excavator should be there this week to dig the forms for the posts. The deck extends 10′ off of the back of the house and runs more than the full width to allow for stairs up on each side of the house.

So excited to use the deck when the weather warms up next year. IMG 0429

New Front Door & Insullation

Work going on, but nothing that is overly exciting to see. The new front door is installed. The pics below only have one coat of stain on the door, so it will look a bit different as 2 more coats get applied. A good amount of siding has been completed, but I have not taken pictures yet. Next post to come.
